Progesterone is a female hormone produced by the ovary. It is important for the regulation of ovulation and menstruation of human.During the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, progesterone levels remain low. Following the LH surge and ovulation, luteal cells in the ruptured follicle produce progesterone in response to LH thus the progesterone level rises rapidly at day 5-7 following ovulation. During the luteal phase, progesterone transforms the estrogen-primed endometrium from a proliferative to a secretory state. If pregnancy does not occur, progesterone levels decrease during the last four days of the cycle.

If the conception occurs, during the first trimester the ovaries will produce progesterone maintaining at mid-luteal level to help build and maintain the lining of the uterus to allow a fertilized egg to implant until the placenta takes over the function around the 9-10th week of pregnancy.
