    7. What hormone does an “ovulation” test probably detect? Why? An “ovulation” test probably detects the ovulating hormone, which is LH. This is because LH triggers ovulation, in which the egg is released from the ovary. LH is also important in the development of the corpus luteum. 8. What are the functions of the uterine tubes? The uterine tubes, or fallopian tubes, receive the ovulated oocyte, allow for the transport of sperm towards the egg, and then they provide a place for fertilization. They later allow passage of the fertilized egg to be implanted into the uterine wall. 9. Why is an abundant blood supply important to the uterus? An abundant blood supply is important to the uterus because it is important for the implantation and growth of the fertilized egg. If the fertilized ovum implants, it needs a rich blood supply to transport nutrients and oxygen to the developing ovum. 10.…

    A method of estrus synchronization is the use of progestin, which can include vaginal implants or oral products, which will trigger the estrous cycle in cows and heifers (Rasby & Deutscher 2016). The treatment, which will inhibit estrus and therefore ovulation for up to 14 days, is often followed by the introduction of prostaglandin or gonadotrophins (Mallory et al. 2010; Powell et al. 2012). The use of progestin while synching a herd is recommended if many of the animals will be anestrus as…

    supporting a single mature egg. The follicle will continue growing and eventually produce its own estrogen hormones (Primal Pictures). Following the follicular phase, there is a surge in levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) triggering the primary oocyte inside the follicle to start dividing again (Primal Pictures). After about 14 days, ovulation will vary from cycle to cycle; the egg inside the follicle becomes fully mature. The follicle pushes up against the ovary wall, ruptures and breaches the…

    The Science of Menopause Without getting too technical, starting in your late 30s your body will begin to produce less estrogen and progesterone. Thankfully, rather than dropping all at once, these hormone levels begin to gradually decrease over time, so that by your late 40s or early 50s, you are approaching the point when your hormone levels will no longer stimulate menstruation. However, this can mean many years of seemingly inexplicable changes occurring within your body, as it begins to…

    ABSTRACT: Profitable animal production require high fertility animals that exhibit healthy ovarian follicles, which contributes to estradiol synthesis. Follicle maturation relies on coordination between pituitary hormones and intraovarian signaling pathways. Recently Wnt/beta-catenin signaling has been established as necessary modulators of folliculogenesis in response to FSH. In granulosa cells (GC), beta-catenin is a central key in regulation of aromatase (Cyp19a1) expression. In addition,…

    Are you experiencing challenges with ovulation? You can try out ovulation drugs. Ovulation is the release of a mature egg from your ovary. The released egg travels through the fallopian tube waiting for fertilization to take place. Every month, an egg develops and matures in one of the ovaries. Your uterine lining has thickened in preparation for the fertilized egg. If conception occurs, that’s what you have been waiting for, congratulation. On the other hand, if you didn’t conceive, your…
