Despite major efforts, the roles of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) as signals for triggering the midcycle gonadotropin surge in women remain incompletely defined. In the present study, a preovulatory configuration of E2 and P4 levels was achieved during the midfollicular phase of normal women and in hypogondal women (with E2 implants) by stepwise incremental infusions of E2 and P4. During the 96 h of E2 infusion alone, reproducible and concomitant surges of LH and FSH occurred after… CONTINUE READING
