do you have to get a doctors approval before getting a FSH blood test?

    i want to see if i can even conceive...so i was wondering if i could get the blood test done myself or if i had to go to a doctor to get it done...also would thyroid problems alter the results?

    I would like to know this as well. I know you need to have a doctor check tsh levels which is the thyroid stimulant hormone. If that level is too high/low than that will affect fertility and they may go on to chech fsh levels from there? I would like to have fsh levels checked.

    you can do theTSH levels your self actually....its one of the self check ones...just when you go register just say you would like to get your TSH checked...for personal references. im sure they can do it...ive done it without a doctors approval. but i didnt know if the FSH was one also??? anyone know???
