Explain the menstrual phase in a human female. State the levels of ovarian and pituitary hormones during this phase.

Solution

(a) The menstrual cycle is the reproductive cycle in all primates and begins at puberty (menarche).

  • Menses takes place on the 3rd–5th day of the menstrual cycle of 28 days.
  • The production of LH is considerably reduced.
  • This causes degeneration of the corpus luteum and reduction in the production of progesterone and oestrogen.
  • The uterine endometrium breaks down and menstruation starts.
  • Cells of the endometrium, secretions, blood and the unfertilised ovum constitute menstrual flow.

During this phase, the levels of ovarian and pituitary hormones are low.
