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

What are normal LH and FSH levels?

What are normal LH and FSH levels?

It depends: Totally on where they are drawn relative to your menstrual cycle, age, and also the functional capacity of your ovaries in terms of estrogen secretion and egg production. Lh normal is 1-20 with a surge before ovulation. Fsh is lowest 3-5 days after last menses. ...Read more

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

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 fsh levels is 9.8 and LH is 6.3. Is this bad?

Not bad: They are within normal range, a bit non-specific though. To interpret FSH we need to know the day of your cycle it was checked: CD3 is the optimal day, in this case your level is a little higher than expected for a 24 year old. If checked at any other time, probably not important. Good wishes. ...Read more

Again! what does it mean to have low test, fsh, and lh?

How low?: It depends upon how low and if the lab was drawn in the morning (8-10 am) to be valid. If your testosterone and free testosterone are low in the morning, and your lh/fsh are also low, it means your brain or pituitary is not sensing the low testosterone and signaling your testicles to produce more hormone. If so, an x-ray exam would be needed. Hope you aren't using narcotics or androgens. ...Read more

If my FSH test is 7.17 and LH test 5.29 what does this mean?

Why was it done?: Your fsh and lh vary considerably during the normal menstrual cycle. Midcycle, around ovulation, lh and fsh are usually high, maybe around 100, but these values are typical of what you would expect at other times during the cycle. After the menopause, the values of fsh and lh are much higher. It would be important to know why your doctor performed these tests. ...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

If my LH test is 5.29 and my FSH test is 7.17 what does this mean?

If my LH test is 5.29 and my FSH test is 7.17 what does this mean?

Not much : In the absence of knowing other hormone values like Estradiol and maybe Progesterone in addition to the clinical setting, lh/fsh alone aren't helpful. ...Read more

My LH levels are in 13.9 and the FSH is in 2.8. What does it means?

My LH levels are in 13.9 and the FSH is in 2.8. What does it means?

PCOS or PreOvulation: Cynthia, the ratio is usually close to 1:1, but if the LH is higher, it is one indication of PCOS. Both hormones are responsible for producing an egg ready for ovulation. If that ratiuo is >2:1 (LH:FSH) in the first week after your cycle, that may be due to PCOS. If the blood was drawn mid-cycle, it may be a normal finding since LH RISES above FSH just before you ovulate. PCOS has treatments. ...Read more

I am 33 years old my FSH is 14.2 LH is 6.1 and my E2 32. So what that's mean?

Female lab values: Unfortunately without other information, such as complaints or symptoms, values taken independently are of minimal use. That said, depending on the timing of the test, all values including FSH may vary. ...Read more

Please Dr I have a very high FSH and LH. my cycling didn't come for 5 months?

Obgyn evaluation: A high FSH and LH typical indicate menopause. You did not mention the levels so a definitive diagnosis can not be made here. Contact the doctor who ordered the test and ask them to go over the results with you. ...Read more

I am a 34 yr old woman and I have very low FSH and LH (0.1 for both) what does this mean?

I am a 34 yr old woman and I have very low FSH and LH (0.1 for both) what does this mean?

Need more info: Hi. Those values a priori look low; it would help to know what a simultaneous estradiol was. Are you cycling? Did you used to cycle and then your periods stopped independent of being pregnant? Any new or different headaches? Any lactation independent of having a baby? If you're still having spontaneous periods, those values are probably just a fluke. Best to see your gyn or an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Pls I have an FSH value of 40.63 and LH value of 34.23. What does this mean. Is it serious. Thanks?

It depends: I assume these results are in miu/l. They are therefore elevated. If you are still having a menstrual cycle, this levels could be "mid cycle" just before you ovulate. If you are not having a period, you may be in early menopause. ...Read more

What is the normal FSH and LH values on the 3rd day of the cycle.Waht is the normal FSH to LH ratio?

A day 3 FSH: Should be low and this varies significantly. As a general rule we like to see it below 10 however this varies and you should speak to your obgyn. A "normal" value is difficult to interpret in young women, but having a value that is >40 is concerning regardless of age. Speak to your obgyn. Lh is less important unless both values are very very low. ...Read more

I want to check my FSH n LH when should i give samples on 3rd day of cycles or on 21st day after cycle so i may know as my flow is decreasing evrymont?

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
