Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Testing

Follicle-stimulating hormone testing can prove helpful in aiding couples in determining why they’re struggling to get pregnant. By measuring the amount of FSH in the blood, the staff at Test Smartly Labs can determine if both male and female sex organs are functioning properly.

How FSH Works in the Male and Female Bodies

Men and women both produce FSH in the pituitary gland. Follicle-stimulated hormones work differently in the sexes:

  • Men
    • Controls sperm production
    • Amount typically remains constant
  • Women
    • Controls menstrual cycle
    • Controls egg production
    • Levels vary according to menstrual cycle with highest amount right before ovulation

Your infertility problems likely result from low egg supply or sperm count. Test Smartly Labs is here to provide crucial answers that can change the course of your life. Our follicle-stimulating hormone testing can even diagnose children going through early puberty. Call today to learn more about our services.
