Fertility Hormone Blood Test Panel
A Fertility Hormone Blood Test Panel is made up of the four most commonly ordered tests to evaluate the reproductive abilities in women. Panel includes Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing hormone (LH), Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), and Estradiol (E2).
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is produced by the pituitary gland. FSH stimulates the growth and maturation of ovarian follicles (eggs). A mid-cycle surge of FSH will initiate the production of estradiol by the egg. FSH and LH work together in further development of the egg follicle.
Luteinizing hormone (LH) is produced and released in the pituitary gland. LH stimulates the ovaries to produce estradiol. A mid-cycle a surge of LH causes the ovaries to release an egg during ovulation.
Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) is a hormone produced by the reproductive organs. AMH is secreted by cells in developing eggs. The level found in the blood is a good indicator of the ovarian reserve.
Estradiol (E2) is an estrogen and the primary female sex hormone. E2 is important in the regulation of the menstrual female reproductive cycles. It is released from the ovaries and adrenal glands and plays a major part in the development of female reproductive tissues including the breasts, uterus, fallopian tubes, and vagina throughout the stages of life.
