The present study was conducted in the department of Biochemistry of Government Medical College, Nagpur for the duration of one and half years. The aim was to study the changes in the levels of serum Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone levels in patients with primary infertility and to study if the change in the levels of these hormones is causative factor in primary infertility. In the present study 50 cases of primary infertility and 50 normal controls were selected. Serum levels of FSH and LH were estimated in both the groups by ELISA method. Serum LH level was decreased significantly in cases compared to controls. A non significant increase in serum FSH level was observed in cases. Increased LH level is suggestive of disruption of H-P-O axis which is indicative of ovarian dysfunction in infertility patients.
