Estrogen - the key to bone health
Which falls during pregnancy from mother to child through the placenta and stimulates breast development in a child. According to another hypothesis, the reduction in estrogen levels in the blood of the child makes his brain more than the hormone prolactin, which may also lead to breast enlargement. After a few weeks the chest, usually becoming completely normal.
In girls, breasts may begin to grow again in the first two years of life. This is due to the action of hormones, which produces the child's body. However, all this does not last long, and then the normal production of hormones until there comes a very important period in human development.
During puberty hormones give start major changes in the female body. Breast becomes more and takes feminine form; armpits and groin begin to grow hair; girls are taller. Finally, begin monthly.

All you need for this change is in the person from birth, but these mechanisms on for many years remain "off" until the day when the hypothalamus to begin large quantities of GnRH, or gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). It stimulates the hypothalamus to produce luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which in turn stimulate the ovaries so that they begin to produce more female hormones.
Female sex hormones
The most important hormones produced by the ovaries, called female hormones; the two most important of them - estrogen and progesterone. The ovaries also produce small quantities of the male hormone - testosterone. During puberty, estrogen stimulates breast development and the final formation of the vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes. He is also responsible for the acceleration of growth and change in the distribution of body fat, because of what is normal most of the fat begins to be deposited on the hips, buttocks and thighs. Testosterone promotes increased muscle mass and bone.
Beginning with puberty PH FSS, estrogen and progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
They play a very important role in regulating the menstrual cycle. Generation of each of these hormones increases and decreases in time, but together they provide a consistent chain of events in the body. Each month, due to the action of female hormones one egg (of a few hundred thousand in each ovary) "matures", the egg leaves the fallopian tubes and enters the uterus. If the egg is not fertilized, after a time, the level of estrogen and progesterone decreases. Left without the "support" of these hormones uterine lining peels off and is gradually removed from the body through the vagina - this is menstrual bleeding.
