The hypothalamic pituitary axis was studied in patients with an abnormal pattern of gonadotropin release during chronic treatment with LH-RH agonist. Two patients had PCOD and the third demonstrated the early luteinization phenomenon. Following a well-defined gonadotropin rise with initiation of LH-RH treatment, no further response was noted. Stabilization of the LH:FSH ratio in PCOD patients was noted after 4 weeks of treatment. Administration of both native LH-RH (100 micrograms) and… CONTINUE READING
