How does FSH affect my ability to get pregnant?
When ovaries have difficulty producing mature eggs, the brain releases a hormone from the pituitary gland called FSH, which stimulates the ovaries and encourages the body to produce more eggs. For a woman in her prime reproductive years, a normal FSH level is typically under 10, while an abnormal level is considered to be anything above 25. Measurements between 10 and 25 are generally classified as borderline. Because higher FSH levels are correlated with lowered egg production, many clinics turn away women with high FSH levels. Although the probability for pregnancy decreases as FSH and age increase, we understand the possibility or pregnancy still exists as long as a woman is still ovulating. At New Hope fertility center, our advanced protocols and technology allow us to accept women no matter how high or low the FSH level.
