Just a note: LH is named for its effect in females. Don't be confused by the term, it also acts on males.

All of you explained the role of LH in female system. Don't forget, LH also play an important, veeery important, role in male system. It stimulates intestitial cells to produce androgens, mostly testosteron ;)

Do you mean ICSH? Interstitial Cell-Stimulating Hormone? ICSH is synonim of LH :wink:
Do you think also that FSH plays a role only in female individuals?

Yes..that's what I mean..(I think I got the wrong name after read about ACTH.. :wink: ).
The first time I think that FSH is for female too because it cause the producing of Follicle de Graff isn't it?? But I think that it works also for the male in producing sperm..

I often get confused because of the 'Follicle' word that's included in the FSH and follicle de graff. Of course men don't have follicle de graff.. :lol:
