Follicle-Stimulating Hormone is produced by the pituitary gland during the first half of the menstrual cycle. It stimulates the development of mature eggs in the ovaries, controls the menstrual cycle and increases oestradiol production in females.
The production of the Follicle-Stimulating Hormone is regulated by the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis.
The FSH Blood test is used to measure the level of FSH in the blood. This test is useful in determining the cause of infertility, the reason for irregular menstruation, pituitary disorder and confirming the start of menopause.
A high level of FSH in the blood indicates Hypergonadotrophic-hypogonadism which is associated with primary ovarian failure, polycystic ovarian syndrome, Turner’s syndrome, menopause and reduced chance of pregnancy.
A low level of FSH indicates Hypogonadotrophic-hypogonadism which is associated with ovarian failure, pituitary disorder and malfunctioning ovaries.
The Follicle-stimulating hormone blood test is available at MedBioTech Laboratory. Book your test today to know the state of your reproductive health.
