Luteinizing Hormone Test

The Luteinizing Hormone (LH) test measures the level of LH in your blood or urine. LH is a hormone produced by gonadotropic cells in the anterior pituitary gland and plays a crucial role in regulating the function of the testes in men and ovaries in women.

Indications of the Test

The test is used to diagnose and monitor conditions related to abnormal LH levels, such as fertility issues, irregular menstruation, and hormonal imbalances. It is particularly useful for assessing the function of the reproductive system and identifying potential issues that may contribute to infertility or other reproductive health problems.

The test is also used to determine when ovulation is likely to occur by checking for the pre-ovulation surge in LH level. This can conviniently be done at home as part of fertility testing.

Patient Preparation/Instructions

No specific preparation is required for the test. However, it is essential to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider or the test manufacturer to ensure accurate results. Its also recommended to note the specific day of your menstrual cycle when the test is done.

Typical Reference Values

Reference values for LH levels vary depending on the individual’s age, sex, and reproductive health. It is essential to consult with your healthcare provider to understand the significance of your LH levels and any necessary course of action.

Turnaround Time

The turnaround time for LH tests may vary depending on the testing method and facility. It is recommended to consult with your healthcare provider or the test manufacturer for specific turnaround time information.
