A Schematic Representation of Changes in the Endometrium During the Human Menstrual Cycle The endometrium stimulated by the two typical ovarian hormones (estrogens and progesterone) undergoes a cycle of proliferation, differentiation and desquamation (menstrual bleeding). The proliferative stage (follicular phase) is the period of regenerative activity. Mitosis are frequently seen, the epithelium becomes higher and more columnar and the glands become well developed and tortuous. The stroma cells of the superficial layer may become separated by edema fluid.
