The Purpose of the FSH Level Test
An FSH test is a simple blood test. Women might be asked to have this test done at a specific point in their menstrual cycle, usually the first couple of days.
FSH Test for Women
In women, the most common reasons for an FSH test include:
  • Assessing infertility problems 
  • Assessing irregular menstrual cycles
  • Diagnosing disorders of the pituitary gland or diseases involving the ovaries
FSH Test for Men

In men, an FSH test may be done to:

  • Evaluate a low sperm count
  • Assess hypogonadism or gonadal failure
  • Assess testicular dysfunction
FSH Test for Children

An FSH test might be used to determine if a child is experiencing precocious puberty, which is early puberty. An FSH test may also be used to determine if a child is experiencing delayed puberty. This occurs when sexual features or organs don’t develop when they should.

High FSH Levels

High FSH Levels in Women

If you’re a woman with high FSH levels, this may indicate:

  • a loss of ovarian function, or ovarian failure
  • menopause
  • polycystic ovarian syndrome, which is a condition in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance, causing ovarian cysts
  • a chromosomal abnormality, such as Turner’s syndrome that occurs when part or all of one of a woman’s X chromosomes is missing

High FSH Levels in Men

If you’re a man with high FSH values, this may indicate:

  • Klinefelter’s syndrome, which is a rare condition in men caused by an extra X chromosome that can affect male development
  • testicles that are absent or not functioning properly
  • testicles that have been damaged by a disease such as alcohol dependence
  • testicles that have been damaged by treatments such as X-rays or chemotherapy

High FSH Levels in Children

High FSH levels in children may mean that puberty is about to start.

Low FSH Levels

Low FSH values may indicate that:

  • a woman isn’t producing eggs
  • a man isn’t producing sperm
  • the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, which are the hormone control centers in the brain, aren’t functioning properly
  • a tumour is interfering with the brain’s ability to control the production of FSH
