Luteinizing hormone is also a gonadotropic hormone and is produced and secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. Its function in women is to bring on ovulation, and increase the secretion of progesterone by the corpus luteum. In men it increases the secretion of testosterone from the testes.
Luteinizing hormone secretion is controlled by the hypothalamus. Conditions that can afflict luteinizing hormone include luteinizing hormone deficiency, empty sella syndrome, adenoma, hypopituitarism, and head trauma.
