Progesterone induces morphological modifications and protein secretion during the luteal phase to permit implantation/nidation. It acts through specific receptors which are regulated by oestrogens. The proliferative phase is thus a prerequisite for progesterone activity. Changes in morphology are first located in the glandular component, with peak secretion occurring during the implantation window. The various components of the stroma are involved during the second part of the luteal phase… CONTINUE READING
