Yes that’s absolutely fine. I did that in my GCSE biology and got top grades so If the textbook abbreviates it, you can too.

yes absolutely but just for future reference in essays or questions if you gonna use abbreviations first use the full phrase then write the abbreviation in brackets (i.e. Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA))then you can use the abbreviation freely throughout

FSH - follicle stimulating hormone
LH - luteinising hormone
They are both reproductive hormones.
