Hi, sorry for the delayed response!

Yes, it is for my biology class and we're currently on the reproductive unit. So I need to make a poster with hormones that control the cycles and other characteristics associated with the menstruation such as PMS.

I have been having a hard time trying to figure out 4 functions of progesterone.... It seems like I can only find 2!
1: thickening of the lining
2: stimulates the growth of mammary glands, which I don't think has much to do with the "menstual" cycle

Hi,

Here are two simplified resources that you may find useful in figuring out the answers:
https://www.ucsfhealth.org/education/the_menstrual_cycle/

https://www.britannica.com/science/progesterone

If you want more detailed information and would like to read a real scientific review to better understand the process yourself, then you can also try: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK279054/

Let me know if this is useful! It's always more exciting to be able to find out the answers for yourself but I'm happy to help more if you need.
Best,
MS
