Sex Hormones
Male Sex Hormones
Testes
Testosterone
o Sperm producing capability and maintaining genitals
o Stimulating and maintaining the secondary sex characteristics (such
as beard growth)
o Stimulating the growth of bone and muscle
Pituitary
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
o Controls sperm production
Luteinizing hormone (LH)
o Controls testosterone production
Hypothalamus
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)
o Secreted by hypothalamus
Regulate the pituitary which releases LH and FSH
Female sex hormones
Ovaries
Estrogen
o Brings many of the changes of puberty (stimulating the growth of the
uterus and vagina, enlarging the pelvis, and stimulating breast
growth)
o Responsible for maintaining the membranes of the vagina and
stopping bone and muscle growth
Progesterone: important hormone for
Pituitary
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
Luteinizing hormone (LH)
Prolactin
o Stimulates milk production by mammary glands after women gives
birth
Oxytocin
o Stimulates ejection of that milk from the nipple
o Stimulates contractions of the uterus during childbirth
Hypothalamus
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)
When GnRH is produced pituitary is stimulated to produce LH and FSH
Prenatal Sexual Differentiation
Sex chromosomes
XX=female
XY=male
XXY=Klinefelter’s Syndrome
Sex chromosomes carry information on how to differentiate in the course
of development
Gonads & Pre-natal hormones

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
