Hypophysis-corpus luteum

How does hypophysis-corpus luteum negative feedback work? Specify the name that is given to atrophied corpus luteum after this feedback process?




After ovulation, the progesterone and estrogen liberations from corpus luteum stop the hypophyseal LH and FSH liberations (this occurs through the inhibition of GnRH, gonadotropin-releasing hormone, a hypothalamic hormone). The concentration of blood of these adenohypophyseal hormones falls to the basal levels again. Since, LH lowers the corpus luteum (luteum means “yellow”) becomes atrophic and turns into corpus albicans. Along with the regression of corpus luteum generation of the progesterone and estrogen ends.
