Gonadotropic hormones

Gonadotropic hormones (HG) are follicle-stimulating ( FSH ) and luteinizing ( LH ) hormones that affect the sexual and reproductive functions of the human body.

Gonadotropic hormones are synthesized in the pituitary gland, more precisely in its anterior lobe. All the hormones that form in this part of the pituitary gland are fully responsible for stimulation and control of all the endocrine glands in the human body.

Processes that control GG

Gonadotropic hormones in women affect the egg: they stimulate rupture of the follicle, promote ovulation, increase the functionality of the yellow body, they also increase the production of hormones of progesterone and androgen, promote the attachment of the egg to the wall of the uterus and the formation of the placenta. But their intake during pregnancy can harm the fetus. Preparations containing gonadotropic hormones are prescribed exclusively by the doctor, in the case of hypothalamic-pituitary body functions. Assign them to women with infertility caused by pituitary-ovarian dysfunction, uterine bleeding, menstrual irregularities, deficiencies in the functions of the ovum's yellow body, etc. During the use of such medicines, an individual dosage and regimen are selected, as well as their correction depending on the effect of the treatment . To determine the results of treatment, it is necessary to control changes in the body, by taking blood tests, ovaries, daily baseline temperature measurements, and observance of the sexual activity regimen recommended by the attending physician.

In men, these hormones improve the synthesis of testosterone and the functions of Leydig cells, and also helps to lower the testicles in the scrotum in boys, spermatogenesis and the development of secondary sexual characteristics. During treatment of male infertility with the help of hormone therapy, blood control is required to testosterone and spermogram levels.
