    Default Tests are in part two

    Hey all

    I posted early this afternoon the wrong results regarding my look into my fertlity..38 and half year old..

    my results should of read-these are my levels

    prolactin- 7 ug/L
    LH- 3 U/L
    FSH 6 U/L
    Oestradiol 530 pmol/L
    Progesterone 29 nmol/L

    saying I am ovulating..

    i just didn't understand how it was set out but they are my results...

    I heard that anything from 3ml-10ml in the FSH is good...

    anyway if anybody is interested any comments appreciated..thanks

    What day of your cycle were these taken? Day 21? You do want the fsh to be low but it's only really of value in the first couple of days of your cycle. With a high progesterone i'd be guessing these were done later in the cycle, is that right? Or are these from seperate occasions?

    My understanding is that the day 3 FSH value is an indicator of ovarian reserve (because it shows how hard you body is having to work to stimulate egg maturation), and the day 21 (7dpo) progesterone value indicates whether you've ovulated that cycle.

    From your high progesterone value, I'd guess that it was a day 21 test? It looks like you very clearly ovulated, which is good. The FSH level on a day 21 test doesn't really give you much useful information. If you're concerned about your ovarian reserve, it would be useful to have a day 3 FSH test done. However, be aware that FSH levels can vary from cycle to cycle.

    this was done on day 21....so it has to be done on day three of a cycle so what i've done was a waste of time?

    No, it's good to have a day 21 progesterone level as well, if just ask to have the others repeated on about day 2 of your next cycle. If also ask for an amh level if you are having more bloods done anyway, although it's non medicare so I think is about $60+ out of pocket. Amh is more stable than fsh levels which are good to know, but can be falsely reassuring if you catch it on a low month.
