This test helps diagnose conditions that affect the pituitary gland and hypothalamus in people of any age, and it also detects disorders of testicles in men and ovaries in women. The follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is released by the pituitary gland, and it contributes to the healthy development and function of the reproductive system.
In men, FSH has an impact on libido, sperm count, and muscle mass. Excessive FSH levels may be the result of a testicular development disorder or a testicular injury caused by trauma, mumps, chemotherapy, germ cell tumor, or autoimmune disease.
In women, FSH affects menstrual cycles, conception, and menopause. Excessive FSH levels may be the result of primary ovarian failure.
In children, FSH influences sexual maturation. It affects testosterone production in boys and estrogen production in girls.
