Abstract

In women, as well as in subhuman primates, it has been suggested that estradiol may be involved in initiating the surge of gonadotropins which occurs at midcycle. This suggestion is based, in part, on the observations that estradiol reaches a peak at or just prior to the midcycle gonadotropin surge (1), and that the administration of estradiol to women and monkeys in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle results in an increase in luteinizing hormone (LH) (2–5).
