        Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test helps determine fertility issues. It test’s the health of ovaries or testicles and helps in checking the functioning of the pituitary gland. Luteinizing hormone is also known as Interstitial Cell Stimulating Hormone. Luteinizing hormone test helps to evaluate fertility issues. It helps in assessing the health of reproductive organs (testicles or ovaries). In women, this test helps to determine ovulation time. This test also helps to evaluate the function of the pituitary gland. The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test is done: • In case of infertility issues in men and women; • In case of irregular or absence of menstrual periods in women; • In case of low muscle mass, low sperm count, or decreased sex drive in men; • In case of symptoms of the pituitary, or hypothalamic disorder. The Luteinizing Hormone (LH) test is done: • In case a woman is unable to get pregnant; • In case of irregular or heavy menstrual periods in a woman; • To track ovulation during the menstrual cycle; • In case of males who have low sperm count, low muscle mass, or decreased sex drive; • In case of symptoms of pituitary or hypothalamic disorder; • In case of early or delayed puberty in children. This test helps to measure the amount of testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in men that is present in both men and women blood. However, the levels of testosterone are much higher in men than in women.

Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
