  • You want to check your levels of FSH and LH
  • You are trying for a baby and want to check your hormones lie within the normal range for your age
Levels of FSH rise in women as egg production declines, so it may be used in certain circumstances to assess the likelihood of whether a woman is going through the menopause. It is often performed in conjunction with an LH (luteinising hormone) test to investigate problems with fertility or the menstrual cycle. 
 
The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) recommend that FSH testing is only considered to diagnose menopause in women aged 40-45 with menopausal symptoms (including a change in their menstrual cycle) or in women under the age of 40 in whom menopause is suspected. 
 
Due to significant fluctuation in FSH levels around the time of menopause, there is a chance that this test may show normal pre-menopause levels of FSH in someone who is going through, or has been through, the menopause.

Hormones
