What are the signs of abnormal levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)?

FSH is one of the hormones responsible for maintaining regulation and the development of the female reproductive system. In men, FSH is vital for the development of the reproductive glands and helps in the production of sperm.

A lack of FSH will therefore lead to menstrual irregularities in women and lower-than-normal sperm production in men. Low FSH levels can also cause delayed puberty in boys and girls of that age, whilst high FSH levels can lead to the onset of precocious (early) puberty.

What is the main test for FSH?

Our FSH test uses a single blood sample for quick, efficient analysis. After we have taken your blood sample, we will send it to our accredited laboratory for analysis.

How will I receive my test results?

After just one working day of your sample's arrival at our lab, you will receive your test results. You will be emailed by Better2Know's experienced advisors as soon as your results are available. You can also log in to our secure patient area on the Better2Know website to access your confidential results at any time. You will be given your log in details as soon as we have processed your booking.

What happens if my test shows abnormal levels of FSH?

You should seek medical advice if your test shows abnormal levels of FSH. Better2Know can arrange a private consultation with one of our many doctors nationwide. In the consultation, your doctor will talk through your results in more detail and recommend suitable treatment options.
