After ovulation, the ‘yellow body’ (corpus luteum), which produces female sex hormones (mostly progesterone), remains temporarily on the ovary. If fertilisation does not occur, it slowly disintegrates, otherwise it persists and produces hormones that help maintain the pregnancy until the 12th week, when the placenta takes over this task.
