    Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone found in humans and other animals. It is synthesized and secreted by gonadotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland. FSH regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the body. FSH and Luteinizing hormone (LH) act synergistically in reproduction.

    You should read these two sites to fully grasp the concept.

    FSH stimulates the follicles to create an egg and LH releases the egg and makes the follicle into corpus luteum which in turn secretes progesterone and estrogen.

    FSH:

    Male - stimulates the formation of spermatozoa, semi nephrous tubules and prostate gland.

    Female - stimulates formation of graffian follicle.

    LH:

    Male - stimulates formation of interstitial cells which secrete male sex hormones.

    Female - stimulates release of ovum from graffian follice and its change to corpus luteum.
