Importance of the profile:
Luteinizing Hormone (LH): In women, LH is linked to ovarian hormone production and egg maturation.
Progesterone: A serum progesterone test is used to determine if ovulation is occurring. When performed at the beginning of your cycle, this test may help diagnose hormonal imbalances, like PCOS.
Follicle stimulating hormones (FSH): FSH can help diagnose or evaluate a number of reproductive health matters. These include menopause, polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian cysts, abnormal vaginal or menstrual bleeding, and fertility problems.
Prolactin: This is made by the pituitary gland and causes milk production. This test is performed in the evaluation of infertility.
Oestradiol: Used to measure your ovarian function and to evaluate the quality of your eggs.
