Transcription: 
After an egg has been ovulated, the follicle then becomes called a corpus ludium cyst. A corpus ludium cyst´s function is to produce progesterone, and what progesterone does as the name may imply, it is a pro-gestational agent. What it does it converts the uterine environment to one which will be receptive to an oncoming embryo. Once implantation has occurred, the pregnancy hormone ACG will continue to drive that corpus ludium to produce the pro-gestational agent, progesterone.
