In brief: Leydig cells

Luteining hormone is a peptide hormone in the pituitary of females and males.
Its name (lh) comes from an action in females, which is 'luteinization' of ovarian granulosa. In males lh stimulates the leydig cells of the testes to make testosterone. Please notice that unless done under supervision and in appropriately screened men, this is not an approved use and may be dangerous.
