High FSH Levels
High FSH levels can be a problem in both male and female fertility. However, they are often seen in women who try to conceive later in life when FSH levels naturally rise. In women, the high levels are caused by the pituitary gland sending more and more FSH to the follicles as the turn-off switch, which is initiated shortly after ovulation, didn’t occur as ovulation didn’t take place.
High FSH levels will fluctuate with each menstrual cycle. Women with high FSH levels will often have the following symptoms, which are all classical symptoms of a blood deficiency:
- Cold hands and feet
- Poor memory and concentration
- Pale complexion
- Hair loss
- Scant periods
