Testicular failure: Elevations in fsh suggest that the testicular cells responsible for sperm production aren't properly functioning. It is very important to identify the problem as there may be genetic reasons behind it. Additionally, fertility may be affected. Some centers may be able to preserve some sperm cells if he is en route to infertility. Your brother should be seeing an endocrinologist. ...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

Menopause due to high FSH levels.  Fat, feeling blah, headachy, zero libido.  What can I do?

Talk to your doctor: You may try over-the-counter black cohosh and/or soy protein. These are natural sources of estrogen. After talking to your doctor, (s)he may test your testosterone level, and prescribe it if low. Some people may choose to take the newer types of prescription estrogen replacement for a period of time. Others might choose non-estrogen prescription meds that help to relieve hot flashes. ...Read more

Im 32. TTC for past 4 yrs. not succeeded yet. my hubby reports are normal. in past 3 to 4 months got high FSH levels. is my mucus sperm friendly.?

Im 32. TTC for past 4 yrs. not succeeded yet. my hubby reports are normal. in past 3 to 4 months got high FSH levels. is my mucus sperm friendly.?

Don't know: The test to see is called a post-coital or Sims-Huhner test. You have sex at mid-cycle and then go in and the doctor collects a sample and looks at it under a microscope to look at mucous-sperm interaction. This will tell you if there is a problem. If there is, the answer is intrauterine insemination with your husband's sperm. The cervix is by-passed and his sperm is placed in your uterus. ...Read more

I have been having hot flashes over a year now certain times of month  they are constant have not had my period over 9 months  high FSH levels post men ?

Soooo close: For all intents and purposes i would say that you are postmenopausal. By the books though you won't have the final stamp of pmp until it has been a full year of no cycles. Make sure that you are taking a calcium/ vit d supplement (ie caltrate + d) to protect against osteoporosis. ...Read more

If I have high FSH and low amh levels will Clomid (clomiphene) still help? I am ovulating

If I have high FSH and low amh levels will Clomid (clomiphene) still help? I am ovulating

Not really.: At age 45, with High FSH and low AMH, indicates that you have DOR. If you take Clomid, (clomiphene) your FSH level will go higher. It is possible that all your follicles will disappear. I suggest you to see a REI doctor to consider donor egg IVF. If it is not an option, you may try natural cycle IVF, banking some embryos for PGS. There is about 5% chance for you may be successful. ...Read more

Can high Prolactin, high TSH, high FSH and normal T4 levels be associated with an empty sella or a cystic legion in the pituitary fossa?

Can high Prolactin, high TSH, high FSH and normal T4 levels be associated with an empty sella or a cystic legion in the pituitary fossa?

Something odd here: Usually when you have high TSH it is because your thyroid hormone levels are low and yet you report your T4 levels are normal. I would go see an endocrinologist and sit down with him and review with him what's up doc. And that's not a wacky suggestion. ...Read more

Hi. i have been taking ovuspark since 2 months as my gynae noticed high fsh and low amh levels. i feel very unwell...almost always. sometimes i get acute lower back pain or pain in hip bones or pain in legs. sometimes i get headaches or feel light headed.

Ovuspark: Ovuspark is not available or prescribed in the US so Healthtap doctors are not going to have experience with this medication and follow up with your doctor will be needed. You need to find out how low your AMH level is. If it is too low then you may be a candidate for in vitro fertilization ...Read more

Consistently high LH level, always high lh:fsh ratio, last result showed 14.4 LH to 6.6 fsh. Do I have insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia?

Consistently high LH level, always high lh:fsh ratio, last result showed 14.4 LH to 6.6 fsh. Do I have insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia?

Maybe (not) . . .: Can't tell anything about Insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia by measuring your lh & fsh. When you're young & menstruating, your lh & fsh will vary throughout your cycle. Once you go thru menopause, your lh & fsh remain elevated. If you want to determine if you're resistant to Insulin or have high Insulin levels, just measure fasting insulin. ...Read more

Took un monitored for 3 cycles and stopped finally got my hormones checked and FSH & test levels were very high can this be the clomid (clomiphene)?

Took un monitored for 3 cycles and stopped finally got my hormones checked and FSH & test levels were very high can this be the clomid (clomiphene)?

No: Clomid (clomiphene) will not affect fsh levels performed on day 2 or 3. High fsh is a sign of diminished ovarian reserve - lower egg numbers and quality. High testosterone can be a sign of pcos or polycystic ovarian syndrome. See a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist for more detailed testing, and for treatment options. ...Read more
