Are the hormones that the pituitary gland secretes for puberty in boys the same as the the hormones secreted in girls?

1 Answer



In boys, the hormone is testosterone. This hormone causes hair growth, also mustache starts production of sperms in the testis...

In girls estrogen and progesterone are secreted by pituitary gland, they are to cause hair growth in underarms, above vagina but no mustache grow!! These hormones start Menstruation in girls.

So, the hormones are secreted from the same source i.e. the pituitary gland, but different hormones are secreted in boys and girls.
