The Fertility Test Panel measures the blood levels of Estradiol, FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) & LH (Luteinizing Hormone) Prolactin and TSH
Why is the Fertility Test Panel panel important?
Estradiol is the main form of estrogen produced by the follicles. FSH stimulates the ovaries to produce the follicle.
A high FSH level (generally over 11) suggests that the follicles are not responding as well as they should be to FSH stimulation. Low Estradiol levels, particularly when associated with a high FSH level, suggest menopause.
LH is also important for ovulation and, in conjunction with FSH, helps evaluate the efficacy of ovulation. A consistently high LH level is suggestive of menopause.

 

Prolactin is a hormone produced by the anterior portion of the pituitary gland, a grape-sized organ found at the base of the brain. Normally present in low amounts in men and non-pregnant women, prolactin's primary role is to promote lactation (breast milk production). This test measures the amount of prolactin in the blood.

The thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) test is often the test of choice for evaluating thyroid function and/or symptoms of a thyroid disorder, including hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.


Do I need to prepare for the Fertility Test Panel?
