gonadotropin releasing hormone(GnRH), Follicle stimulating hormone(FSH), Lutenizing hormone(LH), estrongen and progesterone


Hypothalamus releases GnRH which acts on anterior pituitary to secrete Gonadotropins (FSH and LH)

FSH acts on the ovary for primary maturation of the follicles and later on both FSH and LH acts for final maturation of follicles, ovulation and formation of Corpus Luteum

Estrogen and Progesteron are secreted by the cells of maturing follicle as well as the Corpus Luteum which modifies the uterus and fallopian tube for nurturing the fertilized egg
