List of 7 test parameters included in Infertility Profile M:
1. Luteinising hormone.
2. Prolactin (PRL).
3. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH).
4. Total triiodothyronine (T3).
5. Total thyroxine (T4).
6. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
7. Antimullerian hormone (AMH).
1. LUTEINISING HORMONE:
This test is used to evaluate the amount of luteinising hormone in the blood. It evaluates the fertility issues, reproductive organ functions, and function of the pituitary gland. In children, it is used to detect the cause of delayed sexual maturation. The pituitary gland produces Luteinising hormone. It is associated with reproduction in male and female. In women, this test is used to investigate menstrual irregularities, to evaluate the level of luteinising hormone during the menstrual cycle.
Luteinising test is ordered when:
1. A lady is having difficulty in getting pregnant.
2. A woman has absence and irregular menstrual periods.
3. A man has low level of testosterone, low muscle mass, decreased sex drive.
This test is ordered in children when they enter the puberty at an appropriate age:
Signs of puberty:
1. Breast enlargement in girls.
2. The growth of pubic hair.
3. Beginning of menstruation in girls.
4. The growth of testicles and penis in boys.
2. PROLACTIN (PRL):
Prolactin test is performed to measure the prolactin level in the blood. Prolactin is a hormone made by the pituitary gland. When a woman is pregnant or breastfeeding, the prolactin level increases so that they can produce breast milk. It is possible to have a higher level of prolactin even if you are not pregnant.
Prolactin test is used to:
1. Evaluate anterior pituitary disorder or pituitary function.
2. Detect the cause of breast milk production, not because of pregnancy.
3. Determine the cause of menstrual irregularities and infertility in women.
4. Determine the cause of erectile dysfunction and infertility in men.
Prolactin test is ordered when:
1. A woman is experiencing irregular menstrual cycle and infertility.
2. A man has symptoms of nipple discharge, decreased sex drive, or low testosterone level.
3. A person has symptoms such as visual impairment, unexplained breast nipple discharge and headaches.
High level of prolactin is seen with:
1. Kidney disease.
2. Liver disease.
4. Polycystic ovary syndrome.
5. Hypothalamus diseases.
3. FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE (FSH):
Follicle stimulating hormone plays an important role in the growth of ovarian follicles. The objective of this test is to determine fertility issues, the function of testicles, ovaries, and pituitary function.
High level of FSH in women is due to:
1. Menstruation cycle.
2. Hormone therapy.
3. Turner syndrome.
4. Types of tumour in the pituitary gland.
Low level of FSH in women is due to:
2. Being underweight.
3. Not ovulating.
4. Part of a brain doesn’t produce a normal amount of hormone.
4. TOTAL TRIIODOTHYRONINE (T3):
Total triiodothyronine test is used to determine thyroid disease, i.e., hyperthyroidism. It is also used to monitor the effectiveness of thyroid treatment. It is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. Total triiodothyronine test is ordered when a person has an abnormal TSH level in the test report. It is also suggested when a person has a sign and symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
Symptoms of hyperthyroidism:
1. Weight loss.
3. Difficulty sleeping.
5. Increased heart rate.
6. Tremors in the hands.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism:
1. Weight gain.
2. Dry skin.
4. Puffy skin.
6. Hair loss.
7. Cold intolerance.
6. THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE (TSH):
It is a hormone which is produced by the thyroid gland. This test measures the amount of TSH in the blood. This test is suggested when a person has too much or too little amount of thyroid hormone in the blood. Abnormal level of stimulating thyroid hormone indicates that the thyroid gland is not working correctly.
7. ANTIMULLERIAN HORMONE(AMH):
It is used to evaluate fertility and ovarian function in a woman. It is a hormone made by reproductive tissues in both men and women. Antimullerian hormone test is ordered when a woman experience some sign and symptoms of the polycystic ovarian syndrome.
