What happens to corpus luteum if ovum is not fertilised

Expert Answer:

The corpus luteum produces progesterone. Progesterone makes the lining of the uterus thick for implantation and is necessary to sustain a healthy pregnancy.If the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum dies and progesterone production stops and thickening of the uterus too stops.
