Endocrine aspects of anovulation
  1. H. S. Jacobs


    Endocrine features of anovulation are reviewed, with particular emphasis on methods of investigation. The value of, and indications for, measurements of serum gonadotrophin concentrations are discussed: it appears that FSH measurements allow better discrimination than LH measurements in diagnosing patients with primary ovarian failure. The results of stimulation tests with the synthetic form of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone are described and the relationship of tests with exogenous progestogens and clomiphene is discussed.
