Modeling Hormonal Control of the Menstrual Cycle

  title={Modeling Hormonal Control of the Menstrual Cycle},
  author={James F. Selgrade},
This study presents a strategy for developing a mathematical model describing the concentrations of five hormones important for regulation and maintenance of the menstrual cycle. Models which correctly predict the serum levels of ovarian and pituitary hormones may assist the experimentalist by indicating directions of investigation. In addition, model simulations may be helpful for evaluating the effects of exogenous compounds on the sexual endocrine system of adult women, for testing hormonal… CONTINUE READING
