  1. This is not completely accurate. In truth, when estrogen concentrations are low during the early-to-mid follicular ("pre-ovulation") phase, it inhibits the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary much like it does during the luteal ("post-ovulation") phase. Then when concentrations are high during the late follicular phase it becomes stimulatory as you said. Otherwise this was a great explanation!
