Can Clomid (clomiphene) raise FSH levels?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) raise FSH levels?

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

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

PCOS?? Antimullerian 2.10 ng/ml  Estradiol 109 pg/ml  FSH  3.23 mIU/ml  Inhibin B 161.0 pg/ml  LH 5.82 mIU/ml

PCOS: PCOS is diagnosed by 1) irregular periods, 2) high androgen levels (such as testosterone), and/or 3) many small ovarian follicle cysts, usually seen on ultrasound. These criteria are the Rotterdam/ESHRE diagnostic criteria, the Androgen excess Society has a similar but slightly different criterion. None of the tests you have listed are used for diagnosing PCOS. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

Fsh, lh
follicular stimulating hormone
(fsh)
4.96 and LH is 2.89 .Is this normal?

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

High follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) and luteinizing hormone (lh)--what are normal levels at ovulation?

Varies: Lh levels peak just before ovulation, usually over 25 iu/l. During the rest of the cycle lh levels should be very low. Fsh levels are slightly high (5-10 iu/l) around cycle day #3 and also peak just before ovulation, around 15iu/l. ...Read more

Period slight irregular.Multiple small cysts on ovaries. Day 21: progesterone 6.25nmol/l, LH 19.72miu/ml, FSH 7.45miu/ml, Prolactin 133.13 mu/l. Pcos?

Period slight irregular.Multiple small cysts on ovaries. Day 21: progesterone 6.25nmol/l, LH 19.72miu/ml, FSH 7.45miu/ml, Prolactin 133.13 mu/l. Pcos?

Maybe: The data you provide don't give an absolute answer. "Multiple small cysts" sounds consistent with PCOS but without an image it might not. A Progesterone of 6+ only indicates that you ovulated. FSH and LH are not part of the diagnosis, nor is an FSH/LH ratio. Prolactin also is not part of PCOS diagnosis, but at 133 your is way too high, be certain to test it again fasting. ...Read more

Can Clomid (clomiphene) delay ovulation?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) delay ovulation?

It's just the: Opposite. Clomid (clomiphene) will enhance ovulation by stimulating the brain to produce fertility hormone (gnrh) subsequently inducing the production of ovarian hormones fsh & lh. It's the latter causing ovulation. And the rest is history. God bless you! http://www.Ovulation-calculator.Com/clomid.Htm. ...Read more
