What is a reproductive endocrinologist?

In this lab, you are playing the role of a repoductive endocrinologist. But what does that mean and what do they do?

An endocrinologist is someone who studies the endocrine system. The endocrine system is the system that includes the hormones in the body. They study both the production and management of these chemical messengers. So a reproductive endocrinologist would study the hormones related to the reproductive system. In females, this includes LH, FSH, Estrogen, and Progesterone. In males, this includes testosterone, LH, and FSH.

The Society for Endocrinology has some public information to help explain both the endocrine system and the field of endocrinology.
