Mid-follicular phase pulses of inhibin B are absent in polycystic ovarian syndrome and are initiated by successful laparoscopic ovarian diathermy: a possible mechanism regulating emergence of the dominant follicle.

LH is released from the anterior pituitary in pulses, the frequency of which is closely entrained with those of GnRH.
