I always have a hard time remembering wich hormone stimulates wich cell in testes, so I found this easy mneumonic that works for me and I hope will work for U:

LH the one with the "L" goes to Leydig cells, wich stimulates testosterone production. Testosterone then difusse to sertoly cells

FSH the one with the "S" goes to Sertoli cells, FSH then stimulates the production of Androgen Binding Protein ABP and helps maintaining spermatogenesis.

Also have a mnemonic but may sound male bashing..

We all know that behind every GOOD man is a GREAT woman...and males think with their penis..(just kidding ;) ) especially when looking at a beautiful woman or women...

L (H)adies stimulate Leydig cells, other (FSH) leads to Sertoli cells..

or IF you want to get LEY-Aid by a woman, you want LSH, "laid sex Hormone" which produces testosterone, which makes a man manly.. therefore if you want to get LEY-aid you have to be manly.....sounds dirty but if works for me
