What are the functions of progesterone?

Progesterone is a female sex hormone that is synthesised in the ovaries, although it is also produced in the placenta, adrenal glands and liver.

This female sex hormone is responsible for transforming the endometrium to make it receptive and thus promote embryo implantation by relaxing the uterine muscles. Progesterone also thickens the cervical mucus and stimulates milk production after childbirth.
