diminished secretion of FSH
Deficiency of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH),known as the gonadotropin, leads to different symptoms in men and women. Diminished secretion of FSH can result in failure of gonadal function (hypogonadism). It may be the cause of pairs problems with conception. This condition is typically manifested in males as failure in production of normal numbers of sperm. In females, cessation of reproductive cycles is commonly. Lack of FSH in children is associated with delayed puberty.
In female, low levels of FSH may be due to:
Injection of FSH (ovarian stimulating drug) is used for increase level of FSH. In female, treatment is started in early the menstrual cycle. It is usually used in the sense of stimulation of the development of ovarian follicles. It is important to check regularly to prevent excessive hormone replacement.
In male, low levels of FSH may be due to:
In female, risk factors for low level of FSH include, for example:
In male, risk factors for low level of FSH include, for example:
For both men and women, it is important to maintain an ideal weight, consume a healthy balanced diet and exercise regularly to remain healthy and active.
Physicians can reduce the risk of symptoms by monitoring of FSH therapy to use this medication judiciously.
FSH level correlates inversely with the number of eggs in the ovaries - it is a marker of ovarian reserve. A low ovarian reserve may indicate fewer available eggs and can lead to infertility. In this case synthetic FSH by injection or Clomid (Clomiphene citrate) via a pill can be given to stimulate follicles to mature in the ovaries.
FSH in males is important for both, formation and maturation of the sperms. The low levels of FSH leads to low sperm count (oligospermia). It can one of the reasons for infertility. However, chances are good if the female partner is fertile; many couples with this problem have been successful.
In more severe cases IVF (in vitro fertilisation), or IVF – ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is done and is often the best option, specifically if time is a factor or fertility problems coexist on the female side.
Increasing the levels of FSH can help in treating the symptoms to a certain extent.
The prognosis is favorable if the substitution therapy is optimally guided and monitored properly. Increasing the levels of FSH can help in treating the symptoms to a certain extent. Women and men working age deficient gonadotropins problem tends concept is needed pharmacological ovulation induction in females and spermatogenesis in males and in some cases the methods of assisted reproduction.
Prognosis is more limited if there is a combination of factors that include sperm dysfunction and reduced ovarian reserve.
