Low FSH and Infertility
A baseline FSH blood test on day 3 of the menstrual cycle gives an overall indication of the 'ovarian reserve', which is the capacity of the ovary to provides eggs that are capable of fertilization resulting in a healthy pregnancy.
FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is a hormone secreted by your pituitary gland in your brain in response to low estrogen levels.
Whilst these levels naturally fluctuate, high FSH levels can indicate a perimenopausal or menopausal state and low FSH levels can result in the cessation of reproductive cycles and may lead to infertility.
Very low FSH levels may be due to: PCOS, obesity, infertility, high prolactin levels, kallman syndrome, and other hormonal imbalances where as high FSH generally represents a reduced egg supply and it may also reflect a compromise of egg quality. Acupuncture and Low FSH Testimonial
