DESCRIPTION:

The Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) test measures the amount of FSH, a sex hormone produced by the pituitary gland, in your blood. In women, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)  stimulates production of eggs and a hormone called estradiol during the first half of the menstrual cycle.  In men, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) stimulates production of sperm.

WHY SHOULD I GET MY FSH LEVEL CHECKED?

The Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) test is usually performed to help diagnose problems with sexual development, menstruation, fertility, menopause, or pituitary disorders.
