Estrogen - Secondary sex characteristics and promotes ovulation, helps the body break up old tissue.
Progesterone - Prepares body during pregnancy but during pregnancy comes from placenta
Progesterone and estrogen balance is needed for a normal menstrual cycle. Progesterone stops the menstruation and prepares the uterus for pregnancy. Estrogen starts menstruation and helps (along with oxytocin from pituitary) in labor.
Vitamin A helps lubricate fallopian tubes which might help prevent tubal pregnancy.
Ovulation (expulsion of a matured egg) occurs 13 to 15 days before the following menstruation.
After an egg has broken free from the ovary the follicle is suppose to undergo shrinkage and disappear, sometimes it doesn't; the follicle sight then becomes a cyst.
