Is it that more amount of HGH and estrogen trigger a growth hormone? Can we increase height by increasing the above two hormones?

Is it that more amount of HGH and estrogen trigger a growth hormone?  Can we increase height by increasing the above two hormones?

No: The greatest factor involved in your ultimate adult height is genetic factors (height of your mother and father). Unless you have growth hormone deficiency and/or estrogen deficiency, taking these hormones will not signifiantly change your ultimate height. Of course, at age 24, your growth plates are fused and there is no possible way to increase your height no matter what you take. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining , but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining , but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more

When the egg matures and releases high estrogen, brain starts releasing LH that trigger ovulation.Clomid (clomiphene) is estr receptr.How come estr surge possibl?

Question?: Each month, fsh is produced that recruits eggs which produce estrogen. The rise in estrogen eventually triggers the lh surge and ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is a weak "anti-estrogen" and tricks the brain into over-stimulating the ovaries and increases changes of ovulation, to put it simply. Your question is worded poorly, but i hope this is a good answer for you. ...Read more

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?

Pituitary & steroids: Hi. Pituitary ACTH regulates adrenal cortisol production; it also acutely stimulates aldosterone, but is not the principle regulator. LH principally stimulates gonadal steroid hormone production (both genders make androgens & estrogens, but in opposite dominance). Pregnenolone is early in the steroidogenic pathway in both adrenals and gonads. Good luck! ...Read more

How long should a hormone replacement like estrogen be taken.?

As long as necessary: But as short as possible. It also depends upon which hormone you are referring. Type 1 diabetes is associated w/pancreatic failure which means no Insulin is produced. In this case, Insulin replacement is lifelong. Hypothyroidism is inadequate production of levothyroxine, so again, replacement is lifelong. Estrogen is trickier. Current thinking is only if you have symptoms, so for as short as possi. ...Read more
