Reproductive Endocrinology deals with identification of the underlying cause of infertility, through physical history of each partner and subsequent laboratory testing, is important to ensure appropriate treatment is prescribed.

The reproductive endocrine axis is composed of the hormones produced by the hypothalamus, pituitary, and the reproductive organs—the ovaries in the female and the testes in the male. Maintaining the balance between hormone levels and their effects is vital to achieving homeostasis within the body.

Abnormalities in reproductive hormones like FSH, LH, oestrogen, progesterone in females and serum testosterone, FSH and LH in males causes various fertility problems.
