How do hormonal contraceptives

Current hormonal contraceptives are typically combined and consist of two hormones, one of which is a synthetic analogue of the estrogen and the other - progesterone. As a result of the complex action of the drug is suppressed, as the first phase of the menstrual cycle (egg maturation and its exit from the ovary) and second (development and functioning of the corpus luteum). This is because a large number of female hormones inhibit the secretion of pituitary gonadotropins.

In the first phase of the menstrual cycle, the pituitary gland releases follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which promotes the maturation of the egg in the ovary. If FSH secretion is suppressed, the egg does not mature and, therefore, can not ovulate.

Out egg from the ovary normally carried out under the influence of the pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH), and the place of the ruptured follicle forms a temporary endocrine gland corpus luteum secretes progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 . An analogue of progesterone, which is contained in hormonal contraceptives suppress LH secretion, which further inhibits ovulation Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?  Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?

After the release of a mature egg from the dominant follicle estrogen level falls, the site of the follicle forms the corpus luteum, which begins to produce progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 . Start of production of progesterone marks the second or luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone prepares the endometrium for implantation of a fertilized egg (in the lining of the uterus occur proliferative processes).
