Default Semen?

I was reading about semen, on Scientific American, as you do, and came across this:
Gallup and Burch have worked out many other intricate, persuasive arguments about how the various chemicals in human semen served—and continue to serve—biologically adaptive functions for both sexes. For example, among the more curious ingredients in human semen are follicle-stimulating-hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). The reason this is curious, point out Gallup and Burch, is because these are distinctively female hormones. “What are female hormones doing in human semen?” The authors speculate, and convincingly so, that the presence of FSH and LH in human semen is related to concealed ovulation in human females.

Is this at all relevant to our interests?

I don't think so. I'm no endocrinologist, but my understanding is that in terms of hair growth, FSH levels would primarily affect pubic/body hair, not the hair on the top of your head.

The article is not referring to hair follicles. Lutenizing and Follicle Stimulating Hormones (LH and FSH) are involved with the female reproductive tract, and refer to structures/processes within this system.

the same hormones are present in both male and females but in deifferent amounts......

im not quite sure of the reason for this article as i thought it was common knowledge men had LH and FSH?

The hypathalmus/piturity glands in the brain of males, send out LH and FSH to increase the testosterone production in the testes to create homeostasis! and correct the HypthalmusPiturity Axis, HPTA of the human male body!!

LH and FSH is identified and by the leydig cells in the testes of men and this stimulation increases testosterone production.......

HCG is pregant womens piss and men whos testes are shut off due to medications and steroids,

take HCG with a drug called clomid to swith the testes back on to produce sperm and testosterone!!!!!!!!!

clomid increases the levels of LH in men wich then increases the activity of the testes etc

the endocrine system in men acts like this

Hypathalmus/Piturity in the brain monitors the male humans hormonal levels when its not in line with normal it makes adjustments by releasing fsh and lh to increase testes activity and when the test levels are to high the body or HPT switch of lh and fsh release.... to decrease testical activity and thus lower testosterone,

the big problems in men often occur when the body has excess free testosterone (like after finest or dutas use and steroid use) as not only does the brain and HPTA switch off lh and fsh release to decrease test levels but the body will also turn the excess test in to OESTROGEN mainly by or through fat deposits such as male belly fat....

his oestrogen build up then creates male breast tissue man boobs,deppression,dryskin, and erectile disfunction!!!

but along with the bad points just mentioned the main concern is when the oestrogen is high and the body detects this and because the bodys only way it can make oestrogen in males is through testosterone conversion..... the bodys only way it can decrease oestrogen is to decerease testosterone....

so you see unles you seek medical attention if oestrogen goes unchecked you body can take a very long time to recover normal levels as it basically shuts down untill oestrogen gets low enough and by then when it trys to recreate normal testosterone levels the testicals will be desenitised....

which is why the main reason i feel alot of long term finest users who do report long term side effects like on propecia do so!!!!!!!!

but in a nut shell LH and FSH is vital to men! with out it we have no testosterone or oestrogen and men need both

oh and follicle stimulating hormone has absouloutely nothing to do with stimulating hair follicles on yer head!!!!!

in women it induces ovulation in men it stimulates the body to produce testosterones
