Concentration Of Fsh And Lh Hormone Decrease After Ovulation
If luteinizing hormone (8.2) was greater than FSH (2.1) around mid cycle I think after ovulation, is that pcos because of lh:fsh ratio? Testos. <0.69
Possible: PCOS is the diagnosis of exclusion in that you need to make sure you rule other causes of menstrual irregularities. Most important clinical feature is menstrual irregularities and hyperandrogenic signs /symptoms plus or minus polycystic ovaries on ultrasound. It is very clinical one and you need to see endocrinologist or OBGYN ...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
High follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh)--what are normal levels at ovulation?
My fsh/lh hormone is anovulation. And my doctor is putting me on progesterone... is that a good thing to get me OVULATING???
Won't help ovulation:
Progesterone can be used to make you have 'withdrawal bleeding' so that you shed the lining of your uterus, to prevent a thick lining or pre-cancerous changes in the lining.
Progesterone won't help you to ovulate (release an egg) - if you're trying to conceive with irregular periods or no periods, see a fertility specialist for help. ...Read more
Medication: First, the cause of the low luteinizing hormone (lh) and follicle stimulating hormone (fsh) levels needs to be determined. Second, the answer may be different for men versus women. Sometimes lifestyle changes are enough to correct abnormal FSH and/or lh levels. There are medications, such as Clomid (clomiphene) or inject able FSH & lh that can be helpful. See a fertility specialist and get tested, first. ...Read more
What can I do to stimulate both my luteinizing hormone (lh) and follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) at 45?
Purified FSH: There are injections that fertility doctors use that contain fsh. In the past, pergonal (menotropins) was used to stimulate ovarian egg production and was a mixture of purified fsh and lh. To simulate the lh surge during fertility stimulation cycles, the pregnancy hormone HCG is used in high doses. ...Read more

Around ovulation: At this point in your cycle there is a surge in both LH and FSH but much more so in the case of LH. ...Read more

How is LH hormone produced? Is it necessary to have a growing follicle to have an LH surge? How often does ovulation occur after a positive OPK?
LH: LH is made in the anterior pituitary, it takes a whole book chapter to explain how. It is necessary to have a threshold Estradiol level to have an LH surge, so practically speaking it is necessary to have a follicle. It is unknown for certain how often ovulation occurs after surge, but conservatively it is likely at least 95% of the time. ...Read more
Had cycle day 3 blood work. Dr. Said all was normal and my FSH and another hormone? Indicated I would ovulate? What hormones could indicate this?
Normal day 3: No day-3 hormone says you will or won't ovulate. The fsh on d3 is measure of ovarian reserve and should be excellent in most 27 year olds. Its common to check Estradiol (e2) on d3 also as a cross check of the fsh measurement. Some doctors check amh on d3, but it doesn't really add much to a normal fsh, some check Progesterone (p4) but this isn't usually very useful. ...Read more
If a person cannot ovulate, does she have normal value hormone lik for a person who ovulating? I refer to leutnising hormone, fsh, b-hcg, oestrogent
No: I may be a little confused about the question, but my answer is 'no.' women who cycle/ovulate have fairly predictable patterns of all of those hormones, women who do not cycle will have a different pattern. ...Read more

Unknown: There is not enough information for us to conclude anything about your future fertility. I would ask your obgyn to discuss the details of your FSH and LH hormone. They can go over the levels and tell you if anything is going on. Since your cycles are regular it is not likely there is a hormonal problem. ...Read more

Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe. ...Read more
How do hormones "cross react" on a pregnant test from hormone surge from ovulation? This can turn a pregnant test + day after ovulation & possible conception?
Not likely to happen: Ovulation predictor tests detect lh (luteinizing hormone) in your urine. Urine pregnancy tests (upt) look for HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) which is similar to lh but not the same hormone. There isn't enough lh in your urine from the pre-ovulation lh surge to give you a "false positive" upt. The upt is very accurate. A HCG injection to trigger ovulation will give you a + upt for a week or so. ...Read more
White mucus week after ovulation. Its last for one day. What is it? The decline in hormone levels? Thanks
Hormone response: White mucus is not diagnostic of anything specific however if it occurs on a regular basis mid cycle, it might signal a decrease in progesterone secretion in a woman. As woman's hormone levels cycle every month, and are responsive to multiple chemical changes one would have to measure blood levels over the month to document a decrease in hormone levels. ...Read more

3rd day FSH.: The third day FSH, which is the most useful value here, should be less than 5, so it's close but is a little elevated. ...Read more
Hello, I am 31. male. Have very low energy, erectile disfunction and memory problem. I did hormone test 447 testosteron 1, 5 FSH. LH 4, 9. Is it to low?
Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining, but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?
Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more
Luteinizing hormone (lh) is released by the master gland (pituitary) in the brain to cause ovulation. The egg is released from the ovary and ready to be fertilized. The ovary also then produces Progesterone to prepare the inside lining of the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg and support it until the placenta takes over production ...Read more
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more
