Hormones (1 Biomarker)
Special instructionsDo not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor.
During the menstrual cycle high levels of LH at mid-cycle triggers the release of the egg from the ovary. LH also stimulates the ovaries to produce other hormones such as oestradiol and progesterone. During the menopause, LH concentrations rise.
LH is often tested along with other tests such as FSH, oestradiol and progesterone in the investigation of infertility in both men and women. LH levels are also useful in the investigation of irregular periods and to help evaluate the function of the pituitary gland, which regulates the hormones that control the reproductive system.
