This test works, meaning it didn't come up invalid. I got a normal result with it.
HOWEVER, this test is worthless.
25mIU/ml sensitivity is way too high to determine if you have an issue! My doctor said anything over 10-12 mIU/ml is considered a problem. The sensitivity level needs to be lower (like 10mIU/ml) in order to detect a true problem. Women can take this test and think they're good to go...when really they could have a high FSH of 20, which makes them pretty much infertile. So they'll put off going to the doctor because they think they're normal. When really their levels are much too high, and they need to go to the doctor!
Also FSH alone means nothing in testing. You also need to get the estrodiol level because estrodiol can falsely lower your FSH level anyway. Basically, take this test at entertainment level, it actually tells you nothing about your hormone level. Go to the doctor to get real results!
