Doctor insights on:
FSH is high.: We like the day 3 FHS to be no higher than 5, as indicative of normal ovarian reserve. ...Read more
Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more
Probably: Normal ranges can vary from lab to lab, so the 1st step would be to compare your results to the reference range, usually listed in parentheses such as (1.5 - 10). For hormone tests, however, results have to be interpreted in the context of what is happening clinically. Expected values for someone who is pregnant, or on birth control pills, or who should be ovulating at the time could all differ. ...Read more
Very normal FSH & LH But, testosterone at 196 ng/dl How can this be. And what does it mean... how can T be so low and very normal FSH & LH?
What it means is that you are not making enough testosterone. That can be overcome with additional testosterone injections.
Best to see an Endocrinologist - he will help you maintain your testosterone.
Hope all goes well - please keep me posted. ...Read more
Took induction (merional) now mid cycle, is it possible now by us to differentiate whether I am pco or not? My FSH, LH, e normal, prolactin 31.
?: Pcos is diagnosed by exclusion. There is no one test to determine pcos. All other possibilities are ruled out and if there is no other diagnosis than pcos diagnosis is entertained. This is because pcos is not a disease but a symptom and there are many types of diseases that cause pcos symptoms. Hope that helps but it can be confusing. ...Read more
My mother is 33 years old and she did FSH, LH test the result was fsh:10.16 lh:8.16. Is this result perfect?
Context: These hormone levels fluctuate widely over the course of a menstrual cycle. Imterpretation of the result depends on what day of the cycle she was on. Also, other hormone levels on that date, specifically estradiol, can affect the interpretation. The results you report could be fine, but it depends. ...Read more

Yes: These levels look good. If your cycle is regular, things look good for conception. ...Read more
What is the risk associated with suppressing fsh/lh when using hCG to increase testosterone in men?
Minimal: Let's put it this way: using any type of t to replace/fix hypogonadism/andropause will also suppress fsh/lh. But more importantly, taking t will shut down testicular function from lack of fsh/lh. Using HCG to stimulate the testes to produce more t & sperm will result in negative feedback @ pituitary, thus suppress lh/fsh. But at least your testes are functioning fully. It's off-label but it works. ...Read more

My periods started on 1st june and I got tested for FSH LH on 16th june. Result was 13 for FSH and 80.4 for LH. DHEA testesterone are normal in range.
I have abnormally low (ie. Below range) fsh, lh, oestradiol and progesterone levels, as determined by blood tests. Should I be concerned? I am only 22
Potentially: Considering your other problems, you need a full evaluation by a reproductive endocrinologist. May I also suggest the T3 (liothyronine) is not a good or safe therapy for hypothyroidism. Brand name T4 replacement is better and safer and can also be tested by blood tests, which T3 (liothyronine) cannot. ...Read more
My doctor put me on progesterone because of my fsh/lh is anovulation.... what exactly does that mean?
Fsh triggers eggs: The mammalian estrus cycle seems to be 'triggered' by episodic surgers of the release of follicle stimulating hormome (FSH) and the presence of lutenizing hormone (LH). Progresterone (P) and synthetics like it administered as medicine shut down the hypothalamic cycling, and when you stop the progresterone the cycle often resumes. Last I checked, we still didn't know exactly why that happens. ...Read more
What is the risk associated with suppressing fsh/lh when using Clomid (clomiphene) to increase testosterone in men?
Clomid (clomiphene) increases LH:
The use of Clomiphene citrate increases testosterone by increasing the lh levels and stimulating testosterone production by the testes. It also increases fsh (thus it's use as a fertility drug for women)
the only theoretic risk would be secondary to overstimulation of the testes, which in theory might increase the risk for testicular germ cell tumors, although I know of no diagnosed cases of this. ...Read more
What could be causing low free testosterone? Had two separate tests both where low. Fsh / LH normal, never used drugs/steroids.

Also, ascertain, your immunization status is up to date. Best Wishes. ...Read more
FSH is 28 and LH 10.2 due to chemo damage to testicles. T levels are normal, but could the elevated FSH/LH levels predispose me to Gynomastia?
Unlikely: Unlikely with normal T. Gynecomastia triggered by a decrease in the amount of the hormone testosterone compared with estrogen. Most cases of gynecomastia either idiopathic or related to medications. Elevated FSH: implies damage to the sperm producing cells which make up most of the volume of the testis. Elevated LH: implies damage to the Leydig cells in the testis which produce testosterone. ...Read more

Low progesterone during luteal phase, FSH, LH and estradiol normal. Why? I have an history of anorexia..
Relevance?: Do you have regular periods? If so then the level of your progesterone during the luteal phase is not clinically useful information. If you are trying to get pregnant then perhaps your progesterone was checked to determine if ovulation occurred or not. If you are not ovulating then there are certain medications which can be given to induce ovulation ...Read more
