Clinical significance of determination of Follicle stimulating hormone
1. Follicle stimulating hormone increased:
Primary ovarian dysfunction, ovarian ovulation disorders;
(2) early hypophysis, complete precocious puberty, primary infertility,
after treatment with corticosteroids;
(3) male infertility, testicular seminoma, primary or secondary amenorrhea,
Pituitary FSH tumor, ectopic hormone secretion syndrome, Turner
2. Follicle stimulating hormone reduced:
Hypophysis or hypothalamic hypogonadism, adenohypophysis, sheehan syndrome,
menstrual disorders, endometriosis;
(2) progesterone and estrogen therapy.
3. The measurement of Follicle stimulating hormone and LH peaks in the menstrual cycle or urine can
accurately judge the ovulation period, so as to determine the most timely period
of fertilization. Significant FSH peaks can be seen before ovulation, and the
measurement of changes in FSH can help identify amenorrhea in the ovary,
pituitary gland or hypothalamus.
4. Male sexual dysfunction and delayed puberty. In male patients with other
systemic diseases, blood testosterone was decreased without the increase of FSH,
indicating that the function of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis was
inhibited in severe diseases.
