Sperm production is a complex process that is regulated by multiple sex hormones. In particular FSH, which is produced by the pituitary gland, is in charge of stimulating the production of spermatozoa (spermatogenesis) in the testicles. As a response, inhibin B is produced in the seminiferous tubules to cause an inverse regulation by decreasing FSH levels.
