Open in App
Solution

Oxytocin hormone is involved in the process of parturition. Parturition is the process of giving birth to a baby as the development of the foetus gets completed in the mother’s womb. ​Oxytocin leads to the contraction of smooth muscles of myometrium of the uterus, which directs the full term foetus towards the birth canal.

FSH- Follicle stimulating hormone
functions :-
in males: spermatogenesis
in females: growth of graafian follicle and estrogen secretion.

Progesterone:
1. Prepares endometrium to receive and nourish an implanted fertilized egg
2. Progesterone maintains the growth of milk-producing glands in the breast during pregnancy.
3. If pregnancy does not occur, progesterone levels will drop,thus causing menstruation.
