Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (gnrh) stimulates what?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Gregory Gapp
39 years experience in Obstetrics and Gynecology
FSH,LH: Gnrh stimulates follicle stimulating hormone & luteinizing hormone which stimulates the ovary to produce estrogen and Progesterone which stimulates ovulation which causes increased Progesterone which causes secretory endometrium which prepares the endometrium to allow implantation of a fertilized egg. If no fertilized egg, Progesterone falls which stimulates gnrh to again rise & the cycle repeats.
