Hormone Levels: LH, FSH & PRL Are They Normal?
I did the blood test for my hormonal levels:
Is it normal or not?
I am trying to concieve but my doctors says LH is high what are natural remides to balance my harmone?
The following is a brief summary of what you would expect to see in normal hormanl levels for:
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is often used to assess ovarian reserve. It is measured on day 3 of the menstrual cycle and the normal values range between 3-20 mIU/ml. In general, under 6 is very good, 6-9 is good, 9-10 poor, 10-13 indicates diminished ovarian reserve.
If FSH is really high like over 13, it is very to obtain ovarian stimulation for the purpose of fertility treatment.
Women who have LH levels that are higher than the FSH amny need further testing to rule out PCOS.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is also measured on Day 3 and the levels should be similar to FSH. Their ration should be 1:1. Youe doctor woul dlike to see LH levels less than 7 mIU/ml to be considered in the normal range. An LH that is higher than FSH is one indication of PCOS possibly.
Prolactine hormone is also measured on day 3 and normal levels should be less than 24 ng/m.
Increased prolactin levels can interfere with the process of ovulation and can possibly ndicate further testing like MRI to rule out a pituitary tumor. Some women with PCOS also have hyperprolactinemia, or high levels of prolactin.
Naturally it is possible to address these types of hormanal imbalance with herbal remedies like vitex Agnus castus mother tincture. This is the leading herbal ingredient in many excellent fertility herbal remedeis like FertileXX.
Vitex agnus-castus stimulates proper balance and production of the hormone progesterone by stimulating the pituitary gland to secrete luteinizing hormone (LH) in the correct amounts.
Vitex stimulates ovulation and regulates the length of the luteal phase addressing luteal phase defect and poor egg quality. In western herbal medicine it has been used for centuries to treat sterility, recurrent miscarriages and polycystic ovaries.
All the best!
