FSH LH Testosterone Test Overview

FSH LH Testosterone test is a blood test to measure hormonal levels of FSH (Follicle stimulating hormone), LH (Luteinizing hormone) and Testosterone in blood. All these three hormones are produced by the pituitary gland and are responsible for reproduction and sexual functions in males and females. 
FSH and LH are present both in men and women. In women it controls the menstrual cycle and stimulates the production of eggs(ovulation). In men it stimulates the production of sperm. It is present in low levels in children until puberty, post which the FSH levels increase to stimulate the production of oestrogen and testosterone. 
Testosterone is synthesized by both males and females. Male sex hormones (androgens) include testosterone.

The FSH-LH-Testosterone test is a test to check levels of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Testosterone within the body. This test determines if your body is producing an insufficient amount of hormones, elevated levels of gonadotropins in the body or pituitary-gonadal dysfunction, among other diseases.

Measuring testosterone levels help physicians determine how the body reacts to gonadotropins. The FSH-LH-Testosterone test is usually done along with other hormone tests like a serum prolactin test, for a better understanding of hormonal balance in the body.

FSH, LH and Testosterone are three of the most important hormones that control our reproductive system. The pituitary gland secretes these hormones. They act as messages that tell the body to produce more hormones.

  1. Follicle-Stimulating Hormone is known as FSH. It is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland that aids in the maturation of female ovaries and male sperm. FSH stimulates the growth of follicles, which house immature eggs, in the ovaries of females. FSH also increases sperm production in the testes of males.
  2. The luteinizing hormone is known as LH. It is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland that plays a role in the reproductive systems of both males and females. LH stimulates ovulation in females and the development of the corpus luteum, which produces progesterone. LH stimulates the testicles of males to produce more Testosterone.
  3. Testosterone is a hormone that is made by a man's testicles. It ensures that males' reproductive tissues and other secondary sexual traits develop and stay healthy. Testosterone also helps the body make sperm. In women, Testosterone helps control the menstrual cycle and small amounts can also be found in the ovaries.
  4. Why is the FSH-LH-Testosterone Test Done?

  5. The FSH-LH-Testosterone test combines three hormone tests (FSH, LH, and Testosterone) done on both men and women to check how well their reproductive systems work.
  6. It can be used to check for a wide range of testicular or ovarian problems, such as hormonal imbalances, irregular menstrual cycles, sexual issues, fertility problems and testicular or ovarian tumours.
  7. In women, these hormone levels are used to diagnose the reason behind menstrual irregularities, androgen values and infertility.
  8. In men, it is used to find out what is causing a low number of sperm, infertility or problems in the testicles.
  9. In children, these hormone levels are used to diagnose delayed or early puberty.

Frequently Asked Questions

FSH LH testosterone test is done to diagnose menstrual irregularities and malignancies in women. In males it is done to diagnose sexual dysfunctions, fertility issues and any testicular tumours. In women, the reason depends on at what age and stage it is done. It may be done to diagnose menstrual irregularities, dysfunctions and know the androgen status. In women having difficulties conceiving, it is done to diagnose the cause for infertility. It is done in males to diagnose reasons for infertility, low sperm count or testicular issues. In children it may be done to diagnose early or delayed puberty based on the levels.

FSH LH Testosterone test measures the levels of FSH, LH, Testosterone hormones in the blood.

During fsh lh testosterone test blood sample is taken from a vein in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. You may feel a  little sting when the needle goes in or out. This usually takes less than five minutes. In new-borns the blood is taken from the skin behind the heel.

FSH-LH-Testosterone levels are important for successful conception. Abnormal levels in any of these may lead to infertility issues. High FSH-LH-Testosterone levels in women may mean primary ovarian insufficiency or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), ovarian and uterine malignancies. In men, high FSH-LH-Testosterone may indicate testicular issues, sexual dysfunctions or low sperm count. All these may indicate infertility in men. In children, high levels before puberty, signify early onset puberty. High prolactin levels may be seen in PCOS, hypothyroidism and hypogonadism. High testosterone may occur in uterine fibroids in women and testicular tumours in men. Low levels may lead to lack of ovulation and sperm production leading to infertility issues in both men and women. Low levels may be due to problems in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, being underweight or other central nervous system issues. In children, low levels may signify delayed puberty. It may be due to Turner's syndrome in females , Klinefelter's syndrome in males or some other infections causing sexual issues.

Normal LH levels in males: 1.24 - 7.8 IU/mL

Normal LH levels in females:

  • Follicular phase of the menstrual cycle: 1.68 - 15 IU/mL
  • Midcycle peak: 21.9 - 56.6 IU/mL
  • Luteal phase: 0.61 - 16.3 IU/mL
  • Postmenopausal: 14.2 - 52.3 IU/mL

(It is important to remember that these ranges could differ depending on the lab doing the tests. Also, results above certain levels may be linked to health problems.)

  1. What are the normal levels of Testosterone?

Testosterone is measured in nanograms per deciliter (ng/dl).

Normal testosterone levels in males:

  • 7-10 years old: 1.80 - 5.68 ng/dL
  • 13-17 years old: 208.08 - 496.58 ng/dL
  • 19 years and older: 265 - 923 ng/dL

Normal testosterone levels in females:

  • 7-10 years old: 2.69 - 10.29 ng/dL
  • 13-17 years old: 16.72 - 31.55 ng/dL
  • 19 years and older: 15 - 70 ng/dL
  1. What are the risks of the test?
    The risks of the FSH-LH-Testosterone Test are minimal. The most common risk is pain or discomfort at the site where the blood was taken.
  2. What is hypogonadism?
    Hypogonadism is a condition in which the gonads (testes or ovaries) do not produce sufficient sex hormones.
