What is an FSH and LH test?
An FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinising Hormone) test involves blood tests to measure hormone levels. These two hormones are secreted by the pituitary gland, located at the base of your brain. They indicate something significant is happening with either ovulation or the menstrual cycle.
Why test for FSH and LH levels?
FSH and LH are pituitary hormones that play major roles in female reproductive cycles. Women who are going through a change of life cycle, those with low ovarian reserve, or those having difficulty conceiving should be tested for levels of these hormones to determine the causes of their infertility.
Males can also be assessed for FSH and LH levels to evaluate sperm production and male fertility issues.
When to test FSH and LH levels?
Testing FSH and LH levels are commonly performed during a fertility evaluation to determine the status of the pituitary gland. As a general rule, testing should be ordered if there is a female partner experiencing infertility or if a male partner is experiencing low levels of sperm production.
Why would a male test for FSH and LH?
A man should test for FSH and LH to confirm the presence of low testosterone and low sperm count in the body, which can result in:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced bone density and muscle strength
- Increased fat distribution
Also, it’s recommended to test for FSH and LH if symptoms of hypogonadism are present. Hypogonadism occurs when the male body does not produce enough hormones needed for sperm production, resulting in infertility.
