but isnt it the drop in progestrone that causes the mentruation. If the progestreone is maintained by the corpus luteum (in pregnancy) the endometrium does not shed, hence no menstruation.

Default Answer is A

I think the answer is A , the progesterone tends to keep the endometrium in place and its decline is the stimulus for menstruation as it is not enough to keep endometrium in place

of course it is ( A ) , actually it is the progesterone which gives the signal for shedding of the endometrium , once it goes down , there is no more endometrial proliferation and it dies and comes off ( menstrual blood ) .

Default menstural cramp/ PG

Ans. A. Withdrawal of progesterone cause mensturation. Progesterone is pro-gestation so would not cause myometrium contractions under any condition. Estrogen would cause myometrium contraction but estrogen is low durng the mensutral phase. As a matter of fact everything is low in the menstural phase (FSH?). Prostoglandins is the main cause of dysmenorrhea which is why NSAIDs is the best treatment. see FA 2011 pg 482-83
