MMPs are generally secreted in an inactive form. Pro-MMPs are made in ­increasing numbers prior to menstruation in response to local signals as well as progesterone withdrawal. A tightly regulated balance among MMP production, activation, and inhibition controls the activity of MMPs and hence tissue integrity. MMPs are also regulated by tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs). Withdrawal of progesterone at menstruation leads to increased MMP production and activation as well as release of TIMPs, thus causing matrix degradation.
