The Uterine ( Menstrual) Cycleaudio

  1. 1. The Uterine (Menstrual) Cycle<br />Group 8: Diana Hegazin, Stacey Dust, Deborah Ondimu, Gayle Woods, DerejeGemeda, TochiOhale<br />That’s Ursula the Uterus!<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />UTERINE CYCLE Overview<br />MENSTRUATION:- BREAKDOWN OF THE UTERINE ENDOMETRIUM AND VAGINAL BLEEDING DUE TO LOW ESTROGEN AND PROGESTRONE LEVELS.<br />Menstrual days: 1-5<br />PROLIFERATIVE PHASE:- GROWTH OF THE UTERINE ENDOMETRIUM UNDER ESTROGEN STIMULATION.<br />Proliferative days: 6-14<br />SECRETORY PHASE:- STIMULATION OF THE UTERINE GLANDS SECRETION BY PROGESTRONE.<br />Secretory days: 15-27<br />Ischemic days: 27-28<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />THE FEMALE HORMONES<br />HYPOTHALAMUS:- GONADOTROPIN RELEASING HORMONE [GnRH].<br />PITUITARY:-LUTEINIZING HORMONE [LH] FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE [FSH] PROLACTIN [PRL]<br />OVARY:-<br />DEVELOPING FOLLICLE:- ESTROGEN.<br />CORPUS LUTEUM:- PROGESTRONE.<br />
  4. 4. 4<br />THE FEMALE HORMONES FUNCTIONS<br />FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE [FSH] STIMULATE FOLLICULAR DEVELOPMENT, MATURATION & ESTROGEN SECRETION.<br />LUTEINIZING HORMONE [LH] STIMULATE THE CORPUS LUTEUM FORMATION AND PROGESTRONE SECRETION.<br />PROLACTIN [PRL] STIMULATE BREAST ALVEOLI MILK PRODUCTION.<br />
  5. 5. 5<br />ESTROGEN FUNCTIONS<br />GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT OF FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE ORGANS.<br />DEVELOPMENT OF FEMALE SECONDARY SEXUAL CHARACTERISTICS.<br />GROWTH OF UTERINE ENDOMETRIUM.<br />GROWTH OF THE BREAST DUCT SYSTEM.<br />
  6. 6. 6<br />PROGESTRONE FUNCTIONS<br />STIMULATION OF UTERINE GLANDS SECRETION.<br />GROWTH OF THE BREAST ALVEOLI.<br />INHIBITION OF UTERINE MUSCLES CONTRACTIONS DURING PREGNANCY TO PREVENT EXPULSION OF THE FETUS<br />
  7. 7. 7<br />THE MENSTRUAL CYCLES<br />
  8. 8. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />HYPOTHALAMUS RELEASES GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE (GnRH). This stimulates the anterior pituitary to release FSH and LH.<br />
  9. 9. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />FSH STIMULATES MATURATION OF PRIMARY OOCYTE IN AN IMMATURE FOLLICLE.<br />
  10. 10. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />FOLLICLE PRODUCES ESTROGEN. Estrogen: (A) builds the uterine wall (the endometrium); (B) inhibits secretion of FSH.<br />
  11. 11. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />HIGH LEVELS OF ESTROGEN FURTHER STIMULATE SECRETION OF LH BY ANTERIOR PITUITARY. This plus FSH also causes ovulation of the secondary oocyte – leaving follicle without egg (the corpus luteum). (Approximately day 15.)<br />
  12. 12. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />CORPUS LUTEUM SECRETES ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE. This maintains the endometrium for 15-16 days and inhibits LH.<br />
  13. 13. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />(If oocyte is not fertilized and implanted in the uterine wall) CORPUS DEGENERATES (TO CORPUS ALBICANS) AND STOPS PRODUCING ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE.<br />
  14. 14. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />WITHOUT ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE, ENDOMETRIUM BREAKS DOWN – MENSTRUATION OCCURS. Menstruation is the sloughing off of the enlarged endometrial wall along with blood and mucous.<br />
  15. 15. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />DECREASE IN PROGESTERONE AND LH. Low LH causes secretion of FSH by pituitary again. The cycle repeats.<br />
  16. 16. HORMONAL REGULATION IN NONPREGNANT FEMALE<br />(UTERINE CYCLE)<br />IF – SOMEWHERE BETWEEN:<br />CORPUS LUTEUM SECRETES ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE. This maintains the endometrium for 15-16 days and inhibits LH.<br />And <br />(If oocyte is not fertilized and implanted in the uterine wall) CORPUS DEGENERATES (TO CORPUS ALBICANS) AND STOPS PRODUCING ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE.<br />SPERM GETS TO EGG...<br />FERTILIZATION CAN TAKE PLACE, AND ULTIMATELY, EMBRYO CAN BECOME IMPLANTED IN UTERINE WALL.<br />
