Ova1tm Includes Fsh And Lh
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Age 29, low test, and fsh. My test was 349 (348-1197) my FSH is 1.1 (1.5+) and my LH was normal. What could cause this?
Normal: Hormones fluctuate with your cycle. These are normal results for a 29 yr old. ...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
