Test Name: LH, FSH, PROLACTIN, INHIBIN B & (Inhibin B, LH, FSH, & Prolactin)
Test Code: 1013
Components: Used in the diagnostic work up of infertility and female hormonal disorders
Test Name: ANTI OVARY ANTIBODIES
Test Code: 1180
Components: • The test is used to detect anti ovarian antibodies of IgG, IgM and IgA class in patients with premature ovarian failure. The prevalence of these antibodies in POF is between 20 to 60%. • Anti ovarian antibodies are associated with poor implantation and higher rates of IVF treatment failure. • Important tool for managing Ovarian Stimulation as these antibodies have a suppression effect on ovarian responsiveness in ovarian stimulation in IVF/ET cycle and on ovarian function. AOA should be detected before IVF/ET to evaluate ovarian responsiveness and further treatment. • Predicts low response to hMG injections • In unexplained infertility, ovarian antibodies are an independent marker of ovarian failure than Inhibin B and FSH levels
Test Name: FERTILITY PANEL, MALE, ENDOCRINE (Testosterone Free & Total, LH, FSH, Prolactin)
Test Code: 1577
Components: Helps in differential evaluation of infertility in males due to underlying endocrine causes
Test Name: FERTILITY PANEL, FEMALE, ENDOCRINE (TSH 3RD Generation, Prolactin, Progesterone, Estradiol, LH, FSH)
Test Code: 1578
Components: Helps in differential evaluation of infertility in females due to underlying endocrine causes NOTE: Panel includes TSH 3rd Generation, Prolactin, Progesterone, Estradiol, LH, and FSH. Refer individual test details for further information.
Test Name: ANTI-MULLERIAN HORMONE (AMH)/ MULLERIAN INHIBITING SUBSTANCES (MIS)
Test Code: 1705
Components: • Used to estimate ovarian reserve before starting treatment for infertility or subfertility. Ovarian reserve is a term that is used to determine the capacity of the ovary to provide eggs that are capable of fertilization resulting in a healthy and successful pregnancy. Indirect determination of ovarian reserve is important in the treatment of infertility. • High levels of AMH can be present in women with PCOS which compromises female fertility and therefore a combination of AMH and a transvaginal ultrasound to count the number of antral follicles is probably the best way to assess ovarian reserve and future fertility. This combination is sometimes referred to as the Biological Body Clock Test.
Test Name: LH, FSH & PL (FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE, LUTEINIZING HORMONE EVALUATION & PROLACTIN)
Test Code: 2021
Components: LH is useful in the assessment of pathological conditions related to menstruation, ovulation, fertility and in cases of involving a clinical suspicion of hypogonadism: FSH useful in the work up of fertility, Absence of menstrual periods, absent or decreased secretion of sex hormones, Menopause, Premature ovarian failure. Prolactin: In the diagnostic work up of a suspected pituitary tumor to rule out the presence of prolactinomas, Therapeutic monitoring of prolactinomas, As an adjunctive diagnostic tool in investigating patients with amenorrhea, galactorrhea, infertility, and hypogonadism
Test Name: PROGESTERONE
Test Code: 3163
Components: As part of an infertility assessment to check for ovulatory function • To monitor the efficacy of drug therapy to induce ovulation • Suspected ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage • To monitor the effectiveness of progesterone therapy • Periodically throughout a high-risk pregnancy to monitor placenta and fetal health • When a non-pregnant woman is experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding
Test Name: LUTEINIZING HORMONE (LH)
Test Code: 3198
Components: Estimation of LH is used as an adjunct in the evaluation of menstrual irregularities; for evaluating patients with infertility, and suspected hypogonadism; predicting ovulation and diagnosing pituitary disorders.
Test Name: PROLACTIN
Test Code: 3206
Components: Determine the cause of galactorrhea, headaches and visual disturbances due to a suspected brain lesion. • Diagnose infertility, erectile dysfunction, infertility in females. Diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring of prolactinomas • Evaluate anterior pituitary function (along with other hormones)
Test Name: SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOBULIN (SHBG)
Test Code: 3218
Components: Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) is a glycoprotein that binds to the two sex hormones: androgen and estrogen. In Men: SHBG and total testosterone levels may be ordered for to help determine the cause of infertility, a decreased sex drive, or erectile dysfunction. Measurement of SHBG in addition to testosterone is especially helpful when total testosterone results are inconsistent with clinical signs. Increased SHBG in men may be associated with symptoms of low testosterone levels . In Women: SHBG and testosterone testing may be useful in helping to detect and evaluate excess testosterone production and/or decreased SHBG concentrations and in evaluating women suspected of having PCOS.
