Luteinizing Hormone (Lh) Testing

Struggling to get pregnant? Concerned about infertility? Experiencing irregularities in menstruation?

Checking your Luteinizing hormone (Lh) levels could provide the answers you need. Here’s why:

“About 25 percent of women with infertility have infrequent or absent ovulation. These women usually have irregular periods or no periods at all.” – Hormone Health Network

Lh is a hormone that works with follicle-stimulating hormone (FSh) and signals a woman’s body that it’s time to produce an egg and release it from the ovary. It essentially kick-starts ovulation, a critical component in childbearing.

With abnormal levels of Lh (and/or FSh), a woman’s periods may be irregular, and she may struggle with conception. Test Smartly Labs offers the blood draw you need to test your Lh levels.

We encourage you to seek medical advice whether from your general practice physician or a specialist in reproductive health to discuss your results to better understand what they mean for you and how to move forward.
