Abstract :

Animal reproductive systems depend heavily on hormones which impact the development, functionality, and coordination of reproductive processes. Follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone regulate follicular development, ovulation, and the production of estrogen, progesterone in the female reproductive system. Male reproductive organs’ sexual characteristics, sperm production, and libido depend on testosterone for development and maintenance. Although the role of prolactin in the male reproductive system is not fully understood, it may affect male fertility. Oxytocin plays a role in controlling sexual arousal and ejaculation in men. Understanding hormonal interactions and regulation is important for optimizing reproductive health and fertility in animals. Further research will improve our understanding of these complex mechanisms and their impact on animal reproduction.
