FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone)
Rapid CDIATM FSH kits are intended to alert you the issues associated with low egg count or the onset of menopause by detecting FSH concentration in urine specimens.
FSH is a hormone secreted by pituitary gland. During the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, FSH fosters the growth and maturation of a woman’s eggs. If a woman experiences infertility or approaches menopause, it may be a sign of a low ovarian egg supply. And then, as a result of the negative feedback control of the hypothalamus, there is a high level of FSH. Testing should begin on cycle day 3. Follow up tests to confirm should be used on consecutive days folllowing (cycle day four and five). Elevated FSH levels could indicate a decreased quality of eggs or a low ovarian egg supply.
