Yet another set of hormones controls our sexual function. And so pituitary tumors are rarely producing this stuff, but if a tumor grows and pushes on this, then men can get low testosterone, and that can sometimes be impaired libido and impaired directions. The other hormones revolve around water balance. And that’s rarely a problem with pituitary tumors unless they’ve been operated on, in which case, that can get dysfunctional. Yet another hormone is oxytocin, which in clinical practice, we almost never make any fuss out of it, but for completion sake, I’ll throw that in there as well.
