Luteinizing Hormone (Lh) Testing

Struggling with getting pregnant? Concerned about infertility? Experiencing irregular periods?

Checking your levels of luteinizing hormone (Lh) may provide you with some answers. 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

Luteinizing Hormone (Lh) is a hormone that works with follicle-stimulating hormone (FSh) and signals to a woman’s body when it’s time to develop an egg and release it from the ovary. It’s the hormone that kick starts ovulation in women – a process critical to childbearing.

Without normal levels of Lh (and/or FSh), a woman’s periods may be irregular and she may struggle with getting pregnant.

Test Smartly Labs can help you get the blood draw you need to test your Lh levels.

We encourage you to identify a doctor, whether it’s your general practice physician or a specialist in reproductive health or OBGYN, to discuss your reports with so you understand what they mean for you and how to move forward.
