Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is an important part of the human reproductive system. Its role is to trigger the development of ovarian follicles in the monthly menstrual cycle which, when everything is working as it should, leads to ovulation. Levels fluctuate throughout the month according to where you are in the cycle and so the timing of any measurement is important. High FSH and pregnancy are not mutually exclusive but, at the same time, elevated levels could indicate a decline in fertility.
