Prednisone Effects On Fsh Level
Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more

What does it mean if my LH level is higher than FSH level? Does it mean I may be diagnosed with pcos?
Depends: Lh and fsh levels vary during the cycle. For instance around ovulation lh goes very high. So those tests need to be interpreted based on the timing as well. As far as pcos those tests have nothing to do with the diagnosis at all. So usually not very important except is unusual circumstances when a diagnosis is hard to see. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Took a home fertility test it says, my FSH level is normal what does this mean exactly can I get pregnant?
Nothing: That test does not tell you anything. Fsh has to be interpreted with other hormones at the same time. But I would assume you should be able to get pregnant. If you are having difficulty hen you would want to see a specialist. Otherwise would try and see what happens. ...Read more
My FSH level is 1.55mlu/ml, prolactin is 15.80ng/ml, LH is 1.67mlu/ml. Is there an alarm as to my chances of been pregnant?
Testosterone level test done FSH level was 1.3 and testosterone showed 7.3 nmol/l. I am 28 years old male is that normal?
Could be low: A testosterone level of 7.3 nmol/l is low, the fsh is normal. However, the pituitary hormone to check is lh not fsh, as lh is the one responsible for testost production. You should do repeat levels in the morning, and should get a free testosterone and/or bioavailable testosterone level, as the labs that do these tests are more reliable than general labs. If low, you need evaluation to see why. ...Read more
Fsh level 4.9 lh 3.7 prolactin 134 but oestoadoil 90 pmol what does the oestoadiol mean is this bad I bleed on cd 13/14 cycle red blood durin sex?
Need to Eval Prolact:
Sounds like bleeding during ovulation, (~15 days before menses). Could be an ovarian cyst or other problem of uterus/cervix. FSH, LH, E2 progesterone all change during the the cycle. The E2 is low for most of cycle and FSH low for E2.
Now the PROLACTIN if in standard units is sig ELEVATED and could be causing the FSH/E2 prob and that causing the bleeding. The high PROLACTIN NEEDS MORE EVALUATION. ...Read more
My FSH level is <0.2, LH level is 0.4, estradiol is 21.6. Just got my most recent T level and its 371. Would this mean I have secondary hypogonadism?
Nope!: Your Total T is presumably normal (371 is generally in normal range for most labs) so this lab by itself doesn't represent hypogonadism. Your FSH is suppressed & LH is low because you're taking Axiron, a prescription topical T product. Once you start T replacement, there's no need to check FSH & LH. However, checking both FSH & LH are useful prior to starting TRT to determine cause of hypogonadism ...Read more
Assuming your lab reports results in the same units that mine does, then this level is consistent with extremely low estrogen, or menopause.
I'm sorry you have to come to Healthtap to get answers to your questions. Whenever I order laboratory studies I call my patient to discuss the results. This is how non-socialized medicine works, because I have an investment in my patients. ...Read more
My FSH level is 2.3 and LH level is 1.5. Are these normal? I'm 42 wondering if I'm heading toward menopause.
Not measured!: If you had a hysterectomy with oophotectomy (which is removal of the ovaries) your FSH will go very high, usually into the 100's. The FSH responds differently in different people to HRT. In some it does not change in others it comes to undetectable. What is important is how you feel not a number! Also, know in situation it is safe and appropriate to be on HRT, see link. ...Read more
My FSH level is 9.2 is its normal and also my cervix is high is its normal and also I got 11 day long cycle what is the reasons?
Yes and no: Your FSH level is in the normal range. It is not abnormal to have a cervix that sits high, but an 11 day cycle is not normal. If you mean that you had eleven days from the first day of one period until the first day of the next episode of bleeding, you need to see your doctor for evaluation ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just had my FSH level tested about 2.5 weeks after I menstruated per my OBGYN. I am 39 and my level was 4.5. is that a good number.
Before on the pill FSH level was 6 iu/l and my LH was 16 iu/l. Been on the pill for 1.5 yrs. Fsh level is 3 and LH is 5 now. Normal? Shouldn't it be 0?
No: There's not total shutoff-feedback and very low levels on assays of proteins reflects the presence of similar cross-reacting proteins in the blood. ...Read more
Nope: A diagnosis of pcos usually gives a lh to fsh ratio of 3:1 in about 30% of women with pcos. A more efficient assessment may be to use the ratio of fasting levels of glucose to insulin. When <4.5, this ratio has strong correlation with Insulin resistance. Go see you doctor for further explanation. ...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
