A blood test is one of the most common ways to test hormone levels. This test can detect testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, and thyroid levels. You should order a test that’s specific to your gender, as a women’s hormone test will look for different levels of sex hormones than a men’s test.
S.FSH/LH: These tests measure the level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), Leutinising hormone(LH) in your blood. FSH is made by your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. FSH/LH plays an important role in sexual development and functioning. In women, FSH/LH helps control the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries. FSH/LH levels in women change throughout the menstrual cycle, with the highest levels happening just before an egg is released by the ovary, this is known as ovulation. Too much or too little FSH/LH can cause a variety of problems, including infertility (inability to get pregnant), menstrual difficulties in women, and early or delayed puberty in children.
