    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?
