Insulin: GnRH is stimulated by an increase in insulin (as can be seen in PCOS). An increase in prolactin causes a decrease in GnRH. GnRH is low in early childhood, then is activated in puberty, and has a pulsatile release for normal reproductive function. What exactly initiates puberty is not completely known with biological and environmental factors playing a role.
