Fsh And Lh Hormone Levels
High follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh)--what are normal levels at ovulation?
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
No: Your pituitary controls a number of hormones including thyroid, growth, testosterone & estradiol, among others. While growth hormone deficiency won't "lower" testosterone, pituitary damage leading to growth hormone deficiency can also lead to hypogonadism or low testosterone. It's also common to have a defect in just one hormone rather than all. Traumatic brain injury is not a major concern. ...Read more
Can this be hypopituitairism: high cortisol, highish prolactin, low HGH, lowish TSH, low LH and FSH in luteal phase, (lowish in follicular), low ADH (vasopressin)?
Pituitary: It is difficult to diagnose hypopituitarism vased on labs you provided. High cortisol goes against hypopituitarism. High prolactin can lower FSH and LH.. TSH normal range is 0.3-4.. If pituitary dysfunction is suspected , we check Free T4, not TSH.. I hope this answers your question ...Read more

Fsh level 7.5, LH level 11, progesterone level 2.5, and thyroid level 1.8. Are all these normal? 16th day of cycle. Irregular periods.
Sounds like PCOS: These levels show you have not ovulated by day 16 due to the lower progesterone. Typically throughout the month the fsh is higher than the lh. The lh goes up just before ovulation to trigger the release of the egg. This is what on ovulation predictor kit is checking for. You could be seeing the lh surge just before ovulation which could happen as late as day 20, or it could be high b/c of pcos. ...Read more

Yes: After taking Clomid (clomiphene) fsh levels may rise - this is the basis of the Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test (cct, also known as the ccct) which is a test of ovarian reserve or 'egg supply'. For this test you get an fsh level and Estradiol blood test on day 2 or 3, take 100 mg or two pills of Clomid (clomiphene) a day from days 5 to 9, then repeat the fsh test on day 10. Clomid (clomiphene) does not affect day 2 or 3 fsh levels though. ...Read more

ACTH stimulation: If you have features of both problems, the male hormone levels and menstrual irregularities and infertility are the hallmarks of a diagnosis of PCOS. What does your Endo or Gyne/Endo say about this ? Ask them for answers, which may include an ACTH stim test to see how your pituitary axis is functioning to start with, followed by more adrenal function testing... ...Read more
Are high LH (90 MIU/ML) and FSH (168 MIU/ML) in a post menopausal woman indicative of pituitary disease? (Normal Prolactin, Cortisol (am), TSH)

FSH=4.5, LH=5.3, Progesteron=1.5, Testosterone=0.5, SHB Glob=46, Test/SHBG ratio=1.1, Prolactin=110 Miu/L, 17 bet OST=145. Test after menses, Normal?
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
