Pcos Lh Fsh Ratio
Considering ovarian drilling for PCOS high LH:FSH ratio, irreg cycles, cystic acne, insomnia, feels miserable. Does it really DESTROY part of ovary?
Yes, but wait...: technically, it HAS to, right? The word, itself "drilling" means making a hole. To make a hole you have to take SOME stuff out, right? But that doesn't mean you won't have enough left over to still do what you need them to do. Ovaries have thousands and thousands of eggs, and women only use a few hundred in a lifetime. That said, I am NOT endorsing any specific procedure for you, as I HAVENT SEENU ...Read more
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
I have pcos and my lh:fsh ratio is typically 3:1 throughout my 40-50 cycle, but it reaches 1:1 at time of menses (whenever they come). Why is this?
Why rechecking?: I am not sure why you are rechecking your lh/fsh ratio. This test can be used once as supportive evidence of pcos but there is no value in rechecking it as the information it provides does not guide the clinical management in anyway or provide any new information that the patient can use. It will also vary depending on what day of the cycle it is done. ...Read more
If luteinizing hormone (8.2) was greater than FSH (2.1) around mid cycle i think after ovulation, is that pcos because of lh:fsh ratio? Testos. <0.69
Possible: PCOS is the diagnosis of exclusion in that you need to make sure you rule other causes of menstrual irregularities. Most important clinical feature is menstrual irregularities and hyperandrogenic signs /symptoms plus or minus polycystic ovaries on ultrasound. It is very clinical one and you need to see endocrinologist or OBGYN ...Read more
Is it pcos? Hormones and lh/fsh ratio all normal, metabolic panel normal, A1c is 5.1. There are cysts on ovaries. What is causing the hyperandrogenism
Not enough info: Or unrelated info. Lh/fsh ratio is no longer part of any current diagnostic protocol, a1c and metabolic panel have never been part of pcos diagnosis, "hormones normal" is way too vague. All women have ovarian cysts on us, pcos has a specific look. You have not given any androgen values, why do you say you have hyperandrogenism? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have PCOS. Sometimes my cycle is 40+days usually my LH:FSH ratio very high during this time. When cycle is 30-35 days my LH is much lower. Why this?
Pcos pearl shaped cysts, all hormones normal no androgens high, all ratios normal lh/fsh, hyperhidrosis, what/why is this happening please help?
Not PCOS: Reading your question, the only clear-cut problem i see is hyperhidrosis. This is not a disease and it's hard to quantify "some people just sweat more than others." it is not clear from above that you have pcos; if you do, this wouldn't even be in the top 10 likely causes. Thyroid disease, pituitary disease, and diabetes are sometimes linked to hyperhidrosis, but the list goes on. ...Read more
