Answer :

• Ruptured Grafian follicles form the Corpus luteum.

• Corpus luteum produces progesterone and helps to maintain the endometrium lining, required for the implantation of embryo.

• However if fertilisation doesn’t happen then there is no need of endometrium lining.

• As in absence of fertilisation, endometerium is not required and the corpus luteum degenerates in 10-12 days.
