About Follicle stimulating hormone

What is follicle stimulating hormone?

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It is important for both male and female sexual development but has important regulatory roles in adults. In males FSH stimulates spermatogenesis and in females, it has a role in ensuring only the most mature follicle is released during ovulation. Consistently elevated FSH levels can be an indicator that a woman is going through the menopause.

Why take the test?

This test measures the amount of FSH in the blood. It is used as a confirmatory indicator that a woman is going through the menopause.
