In conclusion, the unique transient hypothyroidism system described here provides a noninvasive means by which testicular size and sperm production can be increased to unprecedented degrees. This system may be useful as a model for understanding the factors which regulate testicular growth and the eventual size that the testes attain, as well as the factors which normally establish and then maintain the amount of sperm produced by an animal.
