This is true. FSH is a follicle stimulating hormone (that’s what FSH stands for), and according to Biology-Pages, it does different things in a male than it does in females. This is why the cell receptors are different; since the functions are different, it makes sense that the receptors for this hormone are different. In a male, it aids with producing sperm. In a female, this hormone helps with assisted reproduction (in-vitro fertilization, for example).

LH, on the other hand, stands for “luteinizing hormone”. Again, it plays different roles in men and women, since it also has to do with the reproductive organs and hormones. In males, this hormone helps kick off the secretion of testosterone. However, in females, it promotes the ovulation during a menstrual cycle.

This should be explained more so that if someone gets it wrong we know why.
