Doctor insights on:
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Hi! is 9.1 FSH on day 3 of the cycle compatible with fertility at the age of 47? Thanks and regards
Just had testing done for fsh levels and lh levels plus estrodil. My question is what level are they considered menopause?
FSH: If what you say is true I am very concerned that your doctor has not taken care of you. Please try and get copies of the doctor's findings and forward them to me if possible. ...Read more
Will using pure FSH injections be a better choice if the response on hmg is not very good ..body LH/FSH levels were tested normal. ?
FFSH vs. hMG: I'm assuming you mean recombinant FSH (e.g. Gonal-f or Follistim) when you say pure (vs. Bravelle). It would help to know what a "not very good" response is, but switching from one formulation to another potentially helps. Other tactics could include increasing the dose of medication daily, giving it intramuscularly or combining FSH with other meds (e.g. Clomid) to improve stimulation. ...Read more
What is the FSH and LH ratio during follicular and lhuteal phase? Is it possible for LH to be 5 times higher on day 14 on the cycle?
Recent bloodwork shows FSH at 2.0 & LH at 3.6 --- are these concerning? They are on the lower side of normal --- should I be at all concerned?
No: If your fsh and lh levels were sky-high, then you would have big concerns about hurtling headlong into menopause. With both of these numbers being on the low side, that implies that you are just in a certain phase of your cycle where you are starting to ramp up for the next phase. We can consider you a regular woman of child-bearing age and capability. ...Read more
47 y.O. Man. Fsh 13.95mlu/ml, LH 1.36mlu/ml, prl 2.59ug/l, e2 42.93pg/ml, p 0.35nmol/l, t 15.22nmol. Values are ok? I workout in gym. Can i improve?
Normal overall: These numbers are all normal, except the fsh is mildly high. If you are not interested in fertility it isn't important. Working out in a gym will not change it, and there is no reason to feel that these need to "improve". Normal is normal. As long as you are feeling well don't let anyone tell you that the numbers (especially testosterone) needs to be higher. ...Read more
