Phases of Menstrual Cycle
FOLLICULAR
Day 1-13 of cycle. Estradiol-induced NEGATIVE feedback on FSH and POSITIVE feedback on LH in anterior pituitay leads to LH surge on day 11-13.
Phases of Menstrual Cycle
OVULATORY
Dominant follicle secretion of estradiol ==> POSITIVE feedback to anterior pituitary FSH and LH, ovulation occurs 30-36 hours after LH surge, small FSH surge also occurs at time of LH surge.
Phases of Menstrual Cycle
LUTEAL
Day 15 to 1st day of menses. Marked by change from estradiol to progesterone predominance, corpus luteal progesterone acts on hypothalamus, causing NEGATIVE feedbac on FSH and LH resulting in decrease to basal levels prior to next cycle; No fetrilization/implantation ~ rapid decrease in progesterone.
