Infertility profile test- FSH: What does a low value of day 2 FSH suggest?
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays a role in the menstrual cycle and the production of eggs. The level of FSH in the blood can fluctuate over the course of the menstrual cycle.
On day 2 of the menstrual cycle, the level of FSH in the blood is typically at its lowest. A low value of FSH on day 2 may suggest that the ovaries are producing sufficient amounts of estrogen, which can stimulate the production of FSH.
A low value of day 2 FSH may be a sign of good ovarian reserve, which is a measure of the number of eggs that a woman has remaining in her ovaries. A high ovarian reserve is associated with higher fertility.
It is important to note that FSH levels can be affected by a variety of factors, including age, menstrual cycle phase, and underlying medical conditions. A low value of day 2 FSH does not necessarily indicate good fertility, and it is important to consider other factors and to discuss the results with a healthcare provider.
