Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is one of the female sex hormones, and
it is also a very important content in the six examinations of gynecological sex
hormones. By detecting the level of FSH, the quality of ovarian function can be
indirectly judged. Some people even believe that FSH 9.8 May be premature
The level of follicle-stimulating hormone alone could not determine whether premature ovarian failure.
Follicle stimulating hormone is known to all is low on the high side has the different representative meaning, especially when there is a high follicle-stimulating hormone often heralds the ovarian function decline, generally more than 10 when the follicle stimulating hormone that ovarian function is abnormal, if more than 40 ovary recession more serious, this time must be timely treatment.
It should also be noted that normal values of follicle stimulating hormone are different before and after ovulation. For example, normal values of follicle stimulating hormone are 1.5-10 before ovulation, 8-20 during ovulation, and 2-10 after ovulation. Therefore, normal values at different periods can be used to judge whether premature ovarian failure occurs.
In addition to some pathologic reasons will lead to the increase or decrease of FSH, the use of contraceptives, estrogen, or during pregnancy will also affect the normal value of serum follicle-stimulating hormone determination, so it is necessary to pay attention to the detection, it is best to repeat the measurement several times, so as to avoid misjudgment.
