The common physiology of steroid hormones in the female reproductive system involves a hypothalamus, Pituitary gland, and Ovary. Hypothalamus that secretes gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), a pituitary gland which can be stimulated by the hypothalamus for secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) at regular intervals, an ovary that has both steroidogenesis for producing the sex hormones such as estrogen and progesteron, and a functional uterus that can be responded by these hormones and methodical enzymatic system. In addition to the above mentioned organs estrogen formation requires another P-450 aromatase complex as well as P-450 enzyme. The substrate can be either androstenedione for the production of estrone or testosterone for the production of estradiol.
