Question Testosterone Negative Feedback on FSH?

Besides LH at pituitary and GnRH at hypothalamus
Does testosterone have negative feedback on FSH also?

Testosterone has negative feedback on GnRH so naturally it inhibits the release of both FSH and LH.

Apart from this FSH is directly inhibited by inhibin.

Hope that helps.
