Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

A pituitary hormone that stimulates spermatogenesis and follicular development. In a man, FSH stimulates the Sertoli cells in the testicles and supports sperm production. In a woman, FSH stimulates the growth of the ovarian follicle. Elevated FSH levels are indicative of gonadal failure in both men and women.
