Which hormones are essential to be tested in a basic fertility study?

By Dr. Elena Santiago Romero.
Last Update: 06/11/2019

If the woman has regular cycles, requesting the Antimullerian Hormone is enough for us to know how her ovarian reserve is. However, if the cycles are irregular, we will need to request other hormones such as FSH, LH, estradiol, or prolactin to know the cause: polycystic ovary syndrome, menopause, hyperprolactinemia, etc. In all cases, we will also ask for thyroid hormones, as it is important to check that the levels are normal for fertility and pregnancy.
