Understanding Luteinising Hormone in Pune


What is Luteinising Hormone in Pune?

The Luteinising Hormone test measures the level of luteinizing hormone (LH) in your blood. This hormone is essential for maintaining a healthy reproductive system in both men and women. 

In women, LH helps in the regulation of the menstrual cycle and ovulation whereas in men, it regulates the production of the testosterone hormone in the testes. This test is done to investigate hormonal imbalances affecting reproductive health. It is available with Tata 1mg labs in Pune at an affordable price.

Abnormal levels of LH in women and men may indicate various reproductive disorders such as irregular or heavy menstrual periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), difficulty getting pregnant,  pituitary disorders, decreased sex drive, and low muscle mass respectively.  

This test can be done in conjunction with other hormonal tests such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) test or prolactin test for a comprehensive assessment of reproductive health. 

In women, the {test-name} is advised on the second or third day of the menstrual cycle whereas for men, the test can be done at any time of the day.

What does Luteinising Hormone measure?

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 GnRH is released from the hypothalamus of the brain and binds to 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.
