Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A FSH test is a blood test that measures the levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in your body. FSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that helps to regulate the development of eggs in the ovaries and sperm in the testicles.

A FSH test is used to diagnose various disorders of the reproductive system in both men and women. These can include:

-Ovulation disorders
-Primary ovarian insufficiency
-Testicular failure
-Klinefelter syndrome

The FSH test is usually done on the second or third day of a woman's period. This is because FSH levels vary throughout the month, and they're usually highest at the beginning of the menstrual cycle.

The normal range of FSH is often said to be between 5 and 20 IU/L, but this can vary depending on the laboratory that provides your results. In general, an FSH level below 10 is considered normal for women still having menstrual periods.

Some of the ways to lower FSH levels include:

1. Taking fertility medications: These can help stimulate the ovaries and improve egg quality.

2. Undergoing ovarian stimulation: This treatment can help increase the number of eggs produced by the ovaries.

3. Having surgery: Sometimes, surgery is necessary to remove Blockages or other problems that are affecting FSH production or release.

4. Making lifestyle changes: Changes in diet and exercise can sometimes help improve hormone levels and overall health, which may in turn lower FSH levels.

Overall, FSH testing is safe and poses no risk to you.

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your FSH test:

- Avoid strenuous exercise or exposure to heat 24 hours before the test. This can impact hormone levels and skew results.

- Don't drink alcohol or use tobacco products for at least 48 hours before the test. These substances can also affect hormone levels.

- Talk to your doctor about any medications you're taking. Some medications, such as birth control pills, can impact FSH levels. Your doctor may recommend stopping these medications for a period of time before the test.

- Make sure to eat and drink normally leading up to the test. Dehydration can impact hormone levels, so it's important to stay hydrated.

No, fasting is required for the FSH test.
