Understanding FSH, LH, Prolactin & TSH in Greater Noida


What is FSH, LH, Prolactin & TSH in Greater Noida?

An FSH, LH, Prolactin & TSH test is a specialized test tailored to evaluate reproductive health in males and females by testing for FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone), prolactin, and TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). It is available at an affordable price in Greater Noida with Tata 1mg Labs. All four hormones—FSH, LH, prolactin, and TSH—are produced in the anterior pituitary gland. In women, FSH and LH play a crucial role in ovulation and menstrual cycles, while prolactin is necessary for milk production. In men, FSH and LH are essential for sperm production and testosterone levels, with prolactin influencing testosterone levels. Additionally, TSH contributes to the production of thyroid hormones, vital for maintaining normal metabolic functions in both men and women.

For women, doctors may recommend an FSH, LH, Prolactin & TSH test if they show signs of infertility, experience irregular or heavy menstrual periods, have PCOS/PCOD, face challenges in getting pregnant, are nearing menopause, or if there are suspected pituitary or hypothalamus problems. In men, this test can be conducted when symptoms such as low sperm count, fertility issues, or indications of low testosterone levels like reduced sex drive and low muscle mass are observed. Do not eat or drink anything other than water for 8-12 hours before the test. In women, the preferred time to collect the sample is the second or third day of the menstrual cycle. Avoid biotin supplements for 2 days before this test to prevent potential inaccuracies in results.

What does FSH, LH, Prolactin & TSH measure?

Contains 4 tests

The hormonal profile measures the amount of hormones, Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Prolactin, and Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH), to determine your reproductive health. This test is performed to address health issues such as delayed puberty, irregular menstruation, abnormal breast milk discharge, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, and problems related to fertility.

These hormone levels are usually low at a young age, but the brain starts producing gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) as adolescence approaches. GnRH is responsible for initiating the changes in puberty and signaling the pituitary gland to release FSH and LH into your blood.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone

A Follicle Stimulating Hormone test measures the level of FSH in your body. FSH is produced and subsequently released into the blood by the pituitary gland. Its production is controlled by a feedback mechanism involving gonadotropin-releasing hormone situated in the hypothalamus in the brain. The released FSH travels through your blood and then attaches to receptors in the ovaries and testes and exerts its functional effects on the reproductive organs, such as sexual development, puberty and maturation. FSH levels vary throughout the menstrual cycle in response to estradiol and progesterone. Any disruption or issue in this feedback mechanism can prevent normal function of the testicles or ovaries. Thus determining its level provides crucial information regarding your health.

TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Ultrasensitive

A TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) Ultrasensitive test measures the levels of TSH hormone in the blood. TSH is produced by the pituitary gland located in the brain. Its function is to stimulate and regulate the functioning of the thyroid gland. It signals the thyroid gland to increase or decrease the production of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 (essential for regulating our body’s metabolism, temperature, heart rate, and growth) when their levels are low or high, respectively. Therefore, when the levels of T3 & T4 decrease, the pituitary gland is stimulated to release TSH. This high TSH level, in turn, stimulates the thyroid gland to release more thyroid hormones (T3 & T4); the vice-versa happens when the levels of thyroid hormones increase.

Serum Prolactin

A Serum Prolactin test measures the levels of prolactin hormone in a person’s body. During pregnancy, prolactin, estrogen, and progesterone hormones stimulate breast milk development. Following childbirth, prolactin helps initiate and maintain the breast milk supply. If a woman does not breastfeed, her prolactin concentration will soon drop back to pre-pregnancy levels.

Besides pregnancy, the most common cause of elevated prolactin concentration is prolactinoma, a prolactin-producing tumor of the pituitary gland. Prolactinomas are the most common type of pituitary tumor and are usually benign (non-cancerous). They develop more frequently in women but are also found in men.

If the pituitary gland and/or the tumor enlarge significantly, it can put pressure on the optic nerve, causing headaches and visual disturbances, and can interfere with the other hormones that the pituitary gland produces.

Luteinising Hormone

The Luteinising Hormone test determines the level of luteinizing hormone that promotes the functioning of the gonads i.e,. testes in men and ovaries in women. LH is produced by the pituitary gland, a pea-sized gland situated at the base of the brain. The production and release of LH are controlled by a system known as the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. A hormone called gonadotropin-releasing hormone is released from the hypothalamus of the brain and binds on the cell receptors in the anterior pituitary gland, which in turn prompts the synthesis and release of luteinizing hormone. LH then travels across the blood and attaches to its target cells in the testes in men and ovaries in women, to facilitate optimal sexual and reproductive activities.
