Bluecrest crestFollicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) Home Test Kit

Bluecrest

FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is produced in the anterior pituitary gland, which is located beneath the brain and regulates the development and functioning of the reproductive system. As FSH plays an important role in the production of sperm, abnormal levels can be a sign of testicular damage, reduced sperm production and / or infertility.

This test measures the amount of FSH in the blood, and is used in adult males who have concerns around fertility or libido.

What is a FSH test?

A FSH test measures the levels of FSH in the blood, and simply involves taking a blood sample. FSH levels tend to remain the same in men, and levels that are above or under the regular ranges can be at the root of various problems such as low sex drive and infertility.  Therefore, this test can be useful in helping to find the cause behind low sperm counts, the inability to conceive, and potential problems with the testicles.

You can test your FSH levels at home with a Bluecrest home test kit. Using our home test kits are highly convenient as they can be self-administered at home with minimal preparation involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a normal FSH level in males?

    The ‘normal’ FSH level in adult men varies between laboratories. As a general guideline the range in UK NHS hospitals is around 1-7 IU/L.

    Your healthcare provider will be able to talk you through the results.

  • What does low or high FSH in males mean?

    High levels of FSH in men typically indicate that the testicles aren’t functioning properly. This can be from lifestyle and external factors such as alcohol dependence and testicle damage caused by certain types of treatments (such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy). More rarely this could be due to a genetic condition such as Klinefelter’s Syndrome which is caused by man having an extra X chromosome. Conversely, low levels of FSH in men could mean that that little to no sperm is being produced. It could indicate that the pituitary gland and / or hypothalamus aren’t functioning properly.

    Any abnormal results will require a discussion with your GP and further testing to accurately diagnose the underlying condition.

  • What does LH do for males?

    LH (luteinising hormone) stimulates the production of testosterone in the testicles, which is key for producing sperm. LH is often measured with FSH to determine a man’s fertility, as irregular levels of LH could also be a sign of low sperm count or a pituitary disorder.

    You can find out more about our LH tests on our LH test page. Alternatively you can view our Male Hormone Profile page for more information on the variety of male hormone tests that can be included to assess male fertility and health.

  • How can a man become more fertile?

    If you are a male experiencing fertility issues, there are small lifestyle changes you can adopt to help to boost your fertility:

    • Don’t smoke
    • Drink alcohol only in moderation
    • Don’t use recreational drugs such as cannabis or anabolic steroids
    • Reduce your stress levels
    • Wear loose fitting underwear such as boxer shorts
    • If you sit down for long periods at work get up and more around regularly
    • Maintain a healthy BMI (Body Mass Index)
