Testosterone and ovulation

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone and ovulation


Avatar f tn the prolactin level is not soley the test to monitor your ovulation. Did you have other tests - like a thyroid lab test and the FSH levels? w/ estrogen - testosterone and progesterone? If you are not menstrating - for sure those levels need to be done.
Avatar f tn s it declines more rapidly until it ceases. During perimenopause our hormone levels (Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone) decrease, and ovulation slowly begins to come to an end... If you're interested in becoming pregnant, my advice would be to start keeping track of your ovulation and menstrual cycles now. Also consult your Ob/Gyn if you have any concerns. The healthier and better shape you're in will definitely influence any possible pregnancy and transition into menopause...
Avatar f tn actually metformin regulates your insulin and testosterone levels which for many women is why their cycle is irregular. the high insulin and testosterone prevent you LH from rising which prevents ovulation. so for most women when the hormones levels return to normal it can trigger ovulation, then two weeks later a period.
Avatar f tn In your case PCOS should be ruled out. Diagnostic tests are 2 hr GTT,serum androgen and testosterone levels,LH-FSH ratio,prolactin levels,TSH levels,17-hydroxyprogesterone levels and 3D ultrasound. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn ok, i was diagnosed with both progesterone defiency, which was a level of 9 when it was supposed to be 599, and a testosterone deficiency with a level of 6 when it was supposed to be 299. i have been on a hormone replacement cream for about 6 months now and have shown extreme improvement in symptoms. however, there is no real way to tell if my infertility has been resolved.
Avatar f tn it means you having polycystic ovarian syndrome thus is diseases of hormonal inbalance meaning more on male hormone lack of ovulation and insulin resistance. lack of ovulation results irregular period.
Avatar f tn If so he should talk to his doctor about taking testosterone supplements to boost his up. I would download an ovulation app and enter your period dates. It will give you the best days to conceive and just have sex everyday that is on your ovulation schedule.
Avatar f tn Hemoglobin and glucose tests. All tests came back NORMAL. I had a procedure done to check my uterus and tubes. All clear and positioned normally. Progesterone test in June showed that I ovulated. I had a light period, we tried to conceive again. However, test in July (this mo) showed I did not ovulate. I am waiting for my period and now its day 33 and no period/discharge of any sort. What can be done to fix this? I want my body to work like its suppose to...
594189 tn?1386916607 SHBG and testosterone testing may be useful in helping to detect and evaluate excess testosterone production and/or decreased SHBG concentrations.
1346723 tn?1300718741 Sometimes a screwed up thyroid (hypo or hyper) will mess with your cycles...and the same with a imbalance of testosterone. They are trying to help you by finding out why you don't have cycles. I wouldn't worry because they are going to help you figure out what the problem is.
Avatar f tn hey hun, have they tested you for PCOS i have it and it stops you ovulating. I weigh 64kg and am 168cm tall and the doctor told me to try and excersize every day as even the smallest amount of weighloss can kick start a pregnancy. i have noticied with me my periods are becoming a little more regular i.e. i used to not have a period for about 4 months- 5months, now its average from 2 months to 5 months.
865758 tn?1285952904 The level at that time was 45, then they retested it on the 3rd day of my cycle and it came back at 42. My endo ran the estradiol and testosterone during ovulation because the estrogen level is suppose to rise during this time. This time it came back again at 42. Does this help?
Avatar f tn Can exercise increase testosterone or DHEA in women? I combine strength training and cardio, which has been very helpful in moderating my hyperthyroid symptoms.
2003099 tn?1327560844 Cycles can become anovulatory due to prolonged use of oral contraceptives, depot shots, eating disorders, increased prolactin, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothalamic dysfunction, luteal phase defects, or tumors of the pituitary gland adrenal gland or ovaries. High testosterone, low progesterone, and cystic ovaries can all affect ovulation. Yes, your doctor can prescribe progesterone. Fertility drugs will not help unless your progesterone is high enough to carry pregnancy forward.
Avatar f tn and do what kricket said and go and buy a ovulation prediction kit, they can really be useful.
Avatar n tn I have had one period in January and one in July and I don't know exact before then but it has been very irregular for the past 6 years after the birth of my first child but the last year and half they have been very spread out. I was told that if I had another child the problems would correct them selves well that did not happen after my daughter was born. I was also told it would be hard for me to get pregnant and was offered clomid but did not fill the script just got lucky.
623156 tn?1322865851 Research has shown with 15 mgs a day in men it can increase semen and testosterone production, in women it can help ovulation and fertility. Natural resources of Zinc are fish, oysters, crab, turkey, chicken and beef. In the newsletter it was mentioned that there have been conflicting opinions about fertility boosting foods. I'm the ultimate optomist. It's seems to be a more wholistic approach. I would check with your dr and see what she or he has to say.
Avatar f tn I have recently been told that I have polycystic ovaries, but not PCOS because I do not have any other symptoms. I have always had regular 30 day cycles with OPK's and BBT confirming ovulation on day 16. However, this cycle I have had strong positive OPK's since day 10, and still have a positive OPK today on day 14. My BBT shows I have not ovulated. Therefore, my LH levels have been elevated for 4 days now.
Avatar f tn t know anything about infertility , but of you and your husband tested fine, then why would he need that? You can try vitex drink green tea. Are you using ovulation test and charting? Best of luck to you and your husband.
Avatar f tn i also was diagnosed with higher level of testosterone and POCS before i conceived my first 6 years ago. i think both issues are related. i went on 1 course of drugs that help regulate ovulation as i was hardly ever ovulating. and after 1 course i was pregnant. after my first my periods became regular again and i have conceived 2 more completely naturally within 7 months of trying. any questions feel free to ask and goodluck!
1339395 tn?1317263821 My doctor tested me for pcos (isnt that the testosterone test? they check for high levels of testosterone?) They tested that and it came back clear and also tested my thyroid..came back clear...so no problems that i know of...but this is the 2nd time in 6 months that i have missed a period for a month.... i had the "surge" the first week of the month...(starting tempting right around that time) so hard to compare that...
Avatar f tn They say i have symptoms of pcos (facial hair and acne) they tested me and my DHEAS LEVEL and TESTOSTERONE were kinda high but all my other hormones were fine. So they started me on SPRINTEC N SPIRONPROLACTONE and i was wondering will this help or do i need to try METFORMIN OR CLOMID.... i also have a cyst on my right ovary. What is the next step for me.
Avatar f tn You should ask him if you can get on a birth control pill to get your periods started. The jelly like substance could be ovulation or leading up to ovulation. The Metphormin is just a pill for insulin resistance. It is supposed to regulate the weird levels of insulin, steroids, and testosterone in a woman's body (or so what the doc told me), but they may not start the ovulation right away.
