Increases FSH Receptors and Estradriol Release
Whether increased granulosa cell sensitivity to FSH arises primarily from the ovary or secondarily as a result of non ovarian factors is unknown. Studies have shown that granulosa cells from PCOS have greater binding of FSH compared with normal ovaries.
1. FSH Receptor Hyper-responsiveness and HyperstimulationDespite a lack of ovulation, studies have demonstrated that PCOS granulosa cells are extremely sensitive to follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) stimulation when compared with normal cells. Studies find women with PCOS have estradiol secretion in response to FSH (during stimulation) that is comparable to normal women. Yet, beyond a certain threshold of […]
