Menstrual Cycle Day 18


What is happening internally? The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone, to maintain the uterine lining. The ovum (egg), if fertilized, changes from the ball of cells known as a morula, into a blastoc...

Menstrual Cycle Day 17


What is happening internally? The corpus luteum continues to produce high amounts of progesterone, in order to maintain the uterine lining. If an ovum (egg) has been fertilized, it continues its journey down the fallopian tube...

Menstrual Cycle Day 16


What is happening internally? The corpus luteum is producing progesterone to maintain the uterine lining. If the ovum (egg) was fertilized by sperm, it will multiply in cells, called a morula. Outward symptoms: Basal b...

Menstrual Cycle Day 15


What is happening internally? The ovum (egg) travels through the fallopian tube, where it will be fertilized--if sperm are present. The ruptured follicle is now called the corpus luteum, and begins to release progesterone and...

Menstrual Cycle Day 14


What is happening internally? Estrogen levels begin to decline, and progesterone levels begin to increase. The sudden burst of lutenizing hormone (LH) causes the follicle to burst, and the egg floats into the fallopian tube. T...

Menstrual Cycle Day 13


What is happening internally? Estrogen peaks, due to the fully developed and large follicle. The hypothalamus sends releasing hormones to the pituitary gland, (which sent out a sudden burst of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH...

Menstrual Cycle Day 8


What is happening internally? Menstrual flow should be dried up. Follicles which surround the developing ovum (egg) are slowly increasing in size, though hormone levels are all low at this point. The uterine lining continues t...

Menstrual Cycle Day 7


What is happening internally? Menstrual bleeding has most likely stopped, or is "spotting" only. FSH and LH are being released from the pituitary gland, and prompting the ovaries to produce one or two follicles, which will sur...

Menstrual Cycle Day 6


What is happening internally? By now the menstrual bleeding may have stopped, though some women may experience a longer bleeding phase. Because the estrogen levels are low, the hypothalamus sends releasing hormones to the pitui...

Menstrual Cycle Day 5
