Pituitary Gland Abnormalities

Pituitary gland abnormalities are a rare cause for male infertility. In such circumstances, the pituitary gland fails to release hormones necessary to promote sperm production. The pituitary gland in the man produces two important hormones for sexual reproduction: luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). The primary function of LH is to act on specialized cells within the testicles to manufacture the male hormone testosterone. FSH has the main purpose of stimulating the production of sperm. In most cases of pituitary gland abnormalities, either LH or FSH or both are greatly reduced. This drop in hormones results in lowered testosterone levels and also reduced sperm production.
