Usual level of sex hormones. Thus there is frequently a period of adolescent sterility lasting a year to 18 months after menarche, but it cannot be relied on in the individual case.

A negative feedback system occurs in the male with rising levels of testosterone acting on the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary to inhibit the release of GnRH, FSH, and LH.
