Service Description

Biomarker: LH Sample: BLOOD Results: 2 HRS Phlebotomy fee: £10 Luteinizing hormone (LH) is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain and is involved in the menstrual cycle and ovulation. LH levels surge in the middle of the menstrual cycle, which triggers ovulation. LH test measures the level of LH in the blood and is is important for several reasons including: 1. Ovulation Assessment: In women, the LH test is used to assess the surge in LH that occurs prior to ovulation. This surge triggers the release of a mature egg from the ovary. Tracking LH levels can help determine the timing of ovulation, aiding in family planning or fertility treatments. 2. Assessing Pituitary Function: The LH test can help evaluate the function of the pituitary gland. Abnormal LH levels may indicate dysfunction of the pituitary gland, which can affect reproductive health and hormone regulation. 3. Diagnosing and Monitoring Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): In the context of polycystic ovary syndrome, LH levels are often elevated. PCOS is a hormonal disorder characterized by enlarged ovaries with multiple small cysts. Elevated LH levels, along with other diagnostic criteria, can help diagnose and monitor PCOS.
