Q: I am being tested for irregular periods, they are assuming i have pcos. Everything has come back normal but the test didn’t give me a standard range for three LH and FSH test which are LH: 11 & FSH: 2.5 … I am 22yrs old and instead of me not getting periods i get really long periods and bleeding in between. I have been trying to conceive with my husband for 2 years and nothing has happened…. does anyone know the levels of these 2 test?
A: FSH stands for follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This hormone is released by the anterior pituitary gland.In women, FSH stimulates production of eggs and a hormone called estradiol during the first half of the menstrual cycle.The FSH test is usually done to help diagnose problems with sexual development, menstruation, and fertility.
So you have a low FSH.
The LH blood test measures the amount of luteinizing hormone (LH). LH is a hormone released by the pituitary gland. In women, an increase in LH levels at mid-cycle causes ovulation.
The normal LH level for an adult female is 5 to 25 IU/L. Levels peak around the middle of the menstrual cycle.
So your LH is normal. Your doctor will tell you if anything is wrong.
A customer asked me one question yesterday, it was: I recently had a blood test to line out any problems, well i got a letter yesterday saying one of my tests were borderline. I rang to see which one this was, the lady told me it was my FSH. I didn’t know what it was, i googled it and all i got was stuff i didn’t really want to read :S so i was wondering if someone can help me out here thanks, I’m 18 and kinda worried, and not had a period for nearly 2 months this is unusual for me.
Q: Usually you have a batch of hormone tests, LH, Progesterone test, Oestrodial etc if you have period problems.
Good luck and I hope you are able to conceive! If you have any questions I will monitor the question!
