    What is the HPTA equivalent called in women?

    Uh, it says I have to write something here... but really - that's all I wanted to know. Unless some one feels like saving me the trouble of searching for info on the term when I do get the answer from one of my helpful brothers.

    Which would be ... when women get exogenous androgen treatment - do they have a similar mechanism that down-regulates? And what the hell atrophy's if so? They're LABIA??? lol

    most of womens androgens are synthesized by the adrenal glands or the ovaries. Adipose tissue can induce excessive androgens in women (cant remember the mechanism). I duno bout the downregulation on women but I guess for sure it has to be a lot diffrent. Since female sex- hormones control the menstrual cycle the feed-back system is IMO a lil more complicated. Didnt check any of this so some can correct if I remember wrong.
