As the pituitary gland secretes LH and FSH, these hormones act on the follicle in the ovary and stimulate its maturation.
At the ovary, estrogen and progesterone are released. At the same time, progesterone affects the development of the endometrium and the breast tissue.
The hormonal flow between the three glands is a negative feedback system; if the body has enough estrogen then no LHRH is produced, however, if estrogen levels are running low, than the hypothalamus secretes LHRH.
A healthy menstrual cycle is dependent on functioning of the endocrine system. If pregnancy does not occur, than the endometrial lining is released. Following menstruation, the endometrial lining of the uterus builds again as the uterus prepares for a fertilized egg.
During this time there is an increase in arterial and venous blood flow. Then, during the secretory phase, the tissue leftover after the egg is released, known as the corpus luteum, secretes estrogen and progesterone to act on the uterus and body.
At this point in the cycle, if fertilization has occurred, estrogen and progesterone remain high and there is no need for the hypothalamus to secrete LHRH.
