Corpus luteum

Corpus luteum

This is what a follicle becomes after an egg has been extracted. After ovulation, the follicle evolves chemically and hormonally into the corpus luteum, which produces progesterone and estrogen. The corpus luteum usually lasts 10-14 days and then dies unless a pregnancy occurs.
