Abstract During a normal menstrual cycle, serum levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol, and progesterone can vary widely between cycles for the same woman, as well as between different woman. Reliable reference values based on the local population are important for correct interpretation of laboratory results. The purpose of our study was to determine detailed reference values for these hormones throughout the menstrual cycle using the Abbott ARCHITECT…

Urinary and serum reproductive hormones showed excellent agreement and may be used interchangeably in menstrual cycles of apparently normally menstruating women.
Development of the first urinary reproductive hormone ranges referenced to independently determined ovulation day
The timing of peak LH was assay-dependent and could be post-ovulatory; therefore should no longer be used to predict/determine ovulation and reproductive hormone ranges referenced to the actual day of ovulation as determined by ultrasound are provided to facilitate examination of menstrual cycle endocrinology.
A multicenter evaluation of immunoassays for follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone and testosterone: Concordance, imprecision and reference values
The analytical performances of widely used immunoassays for FSH, LH, and testosterone show a fair to strong degree of consistency, even among laboratories using the same assay.
Reference ranges for estradiol, progesterone, luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone during the menstrual cycle
This is a description for a series of diagrams showing the reference ranges for the blood content of the hormones estradiol (the main estrogen), progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone and
The Fertility Indicator Equation Using Serum Progesterone and Urinary Pregnanediol-3-Glucuronide for Assessment of Ovulatory to Luteal Phase Transition
The Fertility Indicator Equation served to robustly signal the transition from the ovulatory phase to the luteal phase with either daily serum P or urinary PDG levels provided a distinctive signature to recognize the periovulatory interval.

Fluctuations in sex steroid hormones across the menstrual cycle alter f o in speech more than a particular hormonal concentration, and OCP use seems to have a stabilizing effect on the voice relative to f o and related parameters in speech.
Comparison between the different methods developed for determining the onset of the LH surge in urine during the human menstrual cycle
The optimal method for determining the onset of the LH surge in urine requires retrospective estimation of day of LH surge to identify the most appropriate part of the cycle to consider as the baseline.


Glycoform composition of serum gonadotrophins through the normal menstrual cycle and in the post-menopausal state.
It is concluded that changes in gonadotrophin glycoforms occur through the menstrual cycle which are related to changes in the prevailing steroid environment and following the menopause oestrogenic loss resulted in acidic, relatively simple Glycoforms.
Comparison of day 3 FSH serum values as determined by six different immunoassays.
Day 3 FSH values determined by six different immunoassays were significantly different (P < 0.01, paired t-test).
Performance characteristics of eight estradiol immunoassays.
Findings indicate that the ARCHITECT i2000 estradiol assay in development had the best precision and accuracy of the assays evaluated for measurement of serum est radiol concentrations.
Analytical performance comparison of five new generation immunoassay analyzers
assays was good (CV’s of between 2 and 4%), and for some assays on the Vitros ECi (HCG, PSA, FSH and prolactin) and Elecsys 2010 (FT4, FSH and prolactin) even very good precision ( 0.97). Statistical
