Please somebody help. I'm 30 yo, i've been diagnosed with low t (3.86 ng/ml), low normal LH & FSH (0.97 & 3.15 miu). Is there a permanent cure?

Please somebody help. I'm 30 yo, i've been diagnosed with low t (3.86 ng/ml), low normal LH & FSH (0.97 & 3.15 miu). Is there a permanent cure?

No cure, but help: Not knowing what your diagnosis is, i can't say for sure. Men your age with low testosterone may have any of a number of medical reasons for that. In medicine, we speak of "cure" meaning that the illness is permanently gone with no further treatment. Most illnesses cannot be cured, but well treated. Go to your physician and get a thorough evaluation, which will then lead to treatment. ...Read more

Fsh (Definition)

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

Can you be treated for a high fsh?

Yes: High fsh indicates low ovarian reserve, a low number of eggs. Very high fsh indicates menopause and requires oocyte donation to conceive. Modest elevations in fsh indicate that egg numbers are low. Many women with low egg numbers can successfully conceive. While fsh is a reasonable measure of egg numbers, it is not a good measure of egg quality. If eggs are available, treatment might work. ...Read more

Depends: you will need to coordinate the test timing with your Obgyn. The answer depends on what it is the doctor is looking for. If the doctor is looking for PCOS then it makes little difference. If the doctor is looking for fertility issues then they probably would want a Day 3 FSH and Day 21 Progesterone. ...Read more

What does having a FSH count of 137 mean at 52 years old?

Menopause soon: An fsh level that high means that you are either already in menopause or are "peri-menopause". These levels can change, so you still may get more periods in the future but they likely will not last. ...Read more

What does abnormally low FSH mean? (example: 1.55 on day 3)

What does abnormally low FSH mean? (example: 1.55 on day 3)

It Depends!: The most important question here is why did you have the test? A low 3 day FSH on one occasion really does not show much. FSH varies during the cycle & goes up towards ovulations (mid cycle), then comes back down. It is lowest at about the time of menses. A high number could indicate decreased ovarian reserve (perimenopause) & undetectable with irreg menses some less common things OR PREG or BCP! ...Read more

My wife's FSH is 4.2 LH 6.5 is it normal?

Yes: Both fsh and lh values are normal. They do vary based on the time in the cycle when obtained. It helps us to know the context for the values but in this case the values are normal most of the time in the cycle except at ovulation when the lh would be high. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My wife has levels of under 0 for LH and FSH what does this mean?

Not possible: There is no such thing as less than zero. This does not make any sense. If you have made a typo, then please re-ask. If you are saying there are undetectable levels of either, then she needs imaging of her head, such as an MRI to evaluate the pituitary gland. ...Read more
