The pituitary has two parts. The anterior lobe is the source of prolactin, GH, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH, controlling the thyroid), gonadotropic hormones (LH and FSH, controlling testes or ovaries) and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH, controlling the adrenal glands). The posterior lobe contains nerve fibers coming from the brain (hypothalamus) storing oxytocin (necessary for uterine contractions during delivery) and anti-diuretic hormone.
