Follicle Stimulating Hormone Test (FSH)


This Follicle Stimulating Hormone Test (FSH) measures the amount of follicle stimulating hormone in the blood. FSH is released by the pituitary gland and responsible for egg/sperm production. High or low amounts of FSH can cause infertility issues, early/delayed puberty, unusual menstrual cycles, and other conditions. However, such hormonal imbalances can be identified through the use of this reliable Follicle Stimulating Hormone Test.

How Our FSH Test Works

Once your order has been placed for one of our FSH tests, stop by one of our 4,000+ nationwide testing facilities when convenient and have your sample collected. After collection, your sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory. In as little as 24-72 hours, you’ll have complete results delivered securely to your online portal highlighting your FSH levels. This test is conducted through a blood draw, and fasting is not required.

FSH Imbalance Symptoms

If your FSH level is too high or too low, you can experience symptoms of imbalance including, but not limited to:

  • Infertility
  • Menstrual difficulties in women
  • Low sex drive in men
  • Early or delayed puberty in children.1

This is not an exhaustive list but can indicate that something may be off with your hormone levels.

How to Interpret Your Results

Delivered via our secure portal, your results will provide a comprehensive evaluation of your FSH levels and a quantifiable result and reference range. The chart will include a column that clearly indicates whether your FSH levels are within the normal range or “flagged.” Any flagged items can be interpreted as abnormal. An abnormal result above the reference range indicates an overabundance, while an abnormal result below the reference range identifies a deficiency.

What Do Abnormal Results Mean?

Abnormally high or low levels of FSH can mean different things depending on sex and age. FSH can help to identify early puberty, pregnancy, menopause and more.2 If you should receive abnormal results for FSH, make sure to reach out to your healthcare provider for the next steps.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • All of the tests we offer are FDA approved and performed in CLIA-certified labs to ensure the highest level of accuracy. If you’re testing for certain STDs, you’ll want to consider their latency periods as testing too quickly after exposure could produce an inaccurate result simply because the virus is too new to be detected. If you have questions, our care counselors are happy to walk you through the process, start to finish.

  • We understand that health testing can be a sensitive experience and you should expect a high degree of privacy. We utilize Quest Diagnostics collection sites that are discreet and nondescript. This means you will never be singled out for getting tested, and nobody in the lobby will know your reason for visiting. You will never be sent to a public clinic, health department, or doctor’s office.
