  1. Progesterone: It is secreted by corpus luteum of the ovary after ovulation. It is essential for thickening of uterine endometrium, thus preparing the uterus for implantation of fertilized ovum. It is responsible for development of mammary glands during pregnancy. It inhibits uterine contractions during pregnancy. 
  2. Oestrogen: It is secreted by developing follicles. Estradiol is the main oestrogen. It is responsible for development of secondary sexual characters in females.
