Functions of LH hormone

The LH hormone is a gonadotropin that exerts important functions for reproductive processes in both males and females.

In the female, LH produces the final maturation of the egg and triggers ovulation. In addition, this hormone stimulates the production of androgens in the theca cells, which can be converted to estrogens by the action of FSH in the granulosa cells.

In the male, LH regulates testosterone production by its action on the Leydig cells.
