In brief: Luteal phase
After ovulation your body enters the luteal phase.
This is the time the early developing embryo grows and finds a place to implant. Hormones are devoted to preparing the uterus and endometrial lining for pregnancy.

In brief: Many things
After ovulation that part of your ovary starts producing progesterone which makes the uterine lining stop growing,mature and get ready for a baby.
It will do this for 2 weeks.In the meantime the egg travels thru the tube where it may get fertilized.If it does,it goes on and implants in the uterus and more progesterone is produced.If not, the fall in progesterone causes the lining to sluff off.
