Answer:

Here's what I've got.

Explanation:

There are four. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) and Thyrodi-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

  • LH/FSH (LH being in males, and FSH being in females) Which affects the reproductive functioning. With LH it helps regulate Testosterone. With FSH it produces Estrogen.

  • ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic Hormone) Which targets Adrenals, which in turn produces the hormone Cotrisol.

  • TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone/Thyrotrophin) which targets the Thyroid and is also called Thyroxine.

Hope this helps. :)
