Summary Information: FSH

FSH: FSH is one of the pituitary hormones, chemical substances made and/or stored by the three lobes of the pituitary gland. FSH is also a gonadotropic hormone and is produced and secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. Its function in women is to stimulate the growth of the ova and the secretion of estrogen. In men it stimulates the production of sperm in the testes.

FSH secretion is controlled by the hypothalamus. The ovaries and the testes inhibit its secretion. Conditions that can afflict FSH include perimenopause, menopause, empty sella syndrome, adenoma, hypopituitarism, and head trauma.
