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.

Can i take a FSH and LH blood test after my period? My flow this month was light and period was delayed. Will this blood test also detect pregnancy?

Can i take a FSH and LH blood test after my period? My flow this month was light and period was delayed. Will this blood test also detect pregnancy?

Yes and No: Yes, you can take the fsh & lh blood tests after your period even if it was light (as long as you believe it was a period). Usually test on days 2-4 of cycle. No, the timing and the fsh/lh hormones will not detect pregnancy. If the period was not a real menses and you are actually pregnant with bleeding then a HCG test would detect pregnancy. I hope this answer helps. ...Read more

Check levels: Check the levels again. If it is low again you have Hypogonadism,and you need to find out weather it is hypothalamic/Pituitary or testicular. At your age HCG, gonadotropin releasing hormones are preferred. Clomid (clomiphene) may work very well. ...Read more
