Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. LH, FSH, prolactin, estradiol and AMH are hormones that normally exist in a woman's body and play a big role in the menstrual cycle and of course fertility. These hormones also play a role in other things such as regulating mood or feelings, bone integrity, and fat levels in the body.
Examination of these hormones can be done for various reasons, it could be because a woman has difficulty menstruating or has irregular menstruation, difficulty getting pregnant, there is a suspicion of a tumor, suspicion of premature menopause, and so on. Regarding your question, the test results can vary depending on your age, the stage of your menstrual cycle, whether you are pregnant or not and so on.
As an illustration, for LH levels, the normal LH ranges are as follows:
If in the follicular phase of menstruation, normally 1.9-12.5 IU / L
If in the peak phase of menstruation, the normal is 8.7-76.3 IU / L
If in the lutear phase of menstruation, normally 0.5-16.9 IU / L
In pregnant women, the norm is <1.5 IU / L
For women using contraceptives, the norm is 0.7-5.6 IU / L
Women after menopause, the norm is 15.9-54.0 IU / L
Likewise with other examinations so that this examination can be done repeatedly to find out the trend of change in levels. Normal estradiol for women who are still menstruating is 15-350 pg / mL and after menopause <10 pg / mL. Your results can be called normal and abnormal depending on many factors. So our advice is that these results should be best explained by the doctor who asked for the examination of you because he or she knows your personal reasons for doing this examination and what they get from history and supporting examinations. So, hopefully it answers your question.
