How do fertility doctors increase luteinizing hormone?

Depends. First, the cause of the low luteinizing hormone (lh) level needs to be determined. Second, the answer may be different for men versus women. Sometimes lifestyle changes are enough to correct abnormal lh levels. There are medications, such as Clomid (clomiphene) or inject able lh that can be helpful. I recommend seeing a fertility specialist to first determine the cause of the low lh.
