Background:Infertility is one of the most significant problems in gynaecology. The present study was evaluated FSH, LH and prolactin hormones in female infertility.
Materials & Methods: 72 females with infertility were enrolled in group I and age matched healthy controls were included in group II. The levels of serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and prolactin were measured with enzyme-linked immune-sorbet assay (ELISA) methods.
Results: Age group 20-30 years had 20, 30-40 years had 30 and 40-50 years had 22 subjects. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). The mean prolactin level was 18.1 ng/ml in group I and 12.5 ng/ml in group II. FSH level was 8.6 mIU/ml in group I and 6.1 mIU/ml in group II. LH level was 7.9 mIU/ml in group I and 5.8 mIU/ml in group II. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Infertile females exhibited higher prolactin, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH)as compared to healthy females.
