Luteinizing Hormone (Lh) Testing

Also known as gonadotropin, Luteinizing hormone (LH) is a sex hormone produced in both men and women. It begins to play a significant role starting at puberty and continues to aid in processes such as menstruation and fertility. In many cases, reproductive health issues can be detected using Luteinizing hormone testing, and the staff at Test Smartly Labs is here to offer expert lab testing services.
