5

fertilized egg implants into

endometirum

6

menstruation

shedding of egg and endometrium

7

3 parts of menstral cycle

menses, proliferative phase, secretory phase

8

10

oogenesis is

events that lead to ovulation

11

FSH and LH

egg releasing hormone

12

menoapuse

when ovaries are no longer sensitive to FSH and LH--> decrease in estrogen, progestrone-->atrophy of ovaries

13

FSH and LH secreted by

anterior pituitary

14

hypothalamus

produces gonadotropin releasing hormone, (GnRH) stimulates release of FSH and LH

15

functino of FSH

causes growh of follicles that begin to make estrogen. more follicles=more estrogen

16

during second week, 2 things

estrogen level highest, rebuilding of endometriu mafter mestration

17

function of LH

oocyte to complete meiosis `an arrest at metaphase of meiosis II, forming SECONDARY oocyte. LH also ruptures folllicle to release egg (ovulation).

18

estrogen and progestrone COMBINATION

1) innhibit hypothalamus and anterior pituitary (suppress FSH and LH). prevent realses of more egg
2) prepare endometrium to receive embryo
