The placenta secretes the hormone

Correct! Wrong!

Apart from two steroid hormones oestrogen and progesterone, the placenta produces several protein hormones. The hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin that is measured in a pregnancy test is the first hormone to be released from the developing placenta. Other protein hormones include human placental lactogen, placental growth hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin, relaxin and kisspeptin.
