Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH)

TSH testing

Thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain. This hormone prompts the thyroid gland to secrete Thyroxine(T3) and Triiodothyronine(T4), which control your metabolism and consequently regulate your weight, heart rate, body temperature, and even your moods. TSH levels in the body are tested to check the functioning of your Thyroid gland. Like FSH and LH, TSH is one of the pituitary hormones that are tested… Read More

Testosterone testing

Testosterone testing is commonly done to check the reproductive potential in both men and women. It is the key sexual hormone in men. Testosterone is an androgen, which means that it is responsible for the development of the male characteristics in any individual. Besides regulating fertility, it is responsible for the development of muscle mass, fat distribution, bone growth, as well as production of red blood cells. Upto 98% of… Read More


Estradiol testing

Estradiol test, also known as the E2 test is done to check for proper functioning of the reproductive system in females. It is an important hormone in the female body that is responsible for the development of reproductive organs and secondary sexual characteristics in females. During their reproductive years, women will have high amounts of estradiol, which declines with age to almost negligible at menopause. Estradiol or E2 is the… Read More

Luteinizing Hormone (LH)

Luteinizing hormone test

Luteinizing hormone or LH hormone test is done to check the functioning of ovaries in women and testes in men. It is one of the gonadotrophic hormones released by the pituitary gland, just like follicle stimulating hormone. LH is important for the normal development and functioning of sexual organs in both men and women. Specifically, it is responsible for the maturation of primordial germ cells (which are the precursors of… Read More

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

Blood test for Follicle stimuating hormone

Follicle-stimulating hormone or FSH hormone testing is commonly done to check your reproductive potential. It is one of the two gonadotropic hormones (the other being luteinizing hormone) and is responsible for the development and function of ovaries in females and testes in males. It is basically the hormone responsible for producing mature eggs in the ovaries. During IVF treatment, FSH is the hormone in those injectable gonadotropins that help produce multiple eggs… Read More

Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH)

AMH testing

Anti-Müllerian hormone or AMH hormone levels are often tested to check the ovarian reserve in a woman. AMH plays an important role in the development of your sex organs at birth but it’s after puberty that it really becomes a test for fertility in women. This hormone is produced in the testicles of boys, preventing the development of female sex organs while in girls, the AMH remains low before puberty,… Read More
