Menopause?: As an isolated measure, in the context of what seems to be normal thyroid function, an FSH above 35 defines the menopause, at least biochemically. Have your cycles changed? You may be approaching the menopause, but I would be helpful to know what’s going on with your cycle. ...Read more

Fsh (Definition)

Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more

Fsh 36, 1 LH 20, 1 17 beta estradiol 57pg/ml 209 pmol/l Am I menopausal?

Are you menstruating: Menopause is the loss of menstruation for 12 consecutive months. I don't routinely use lab tests to determine menopause. FSH and LH are dependent on your cycle days, so I cant say if your levels are normal. ...Read more

LMP 08/23 FSH 5.5 LH 3.5 Prolactin 106.5 Estradiol 173 Am I in peri-menopause?

LMP 08/23 FSH 5.5 LH 3.5 Prolactin 106.5 Estradiol 173 Am I in peri-menopause?

No evidence: Hi. Those lab tests show no evidence of menopause, and perimenopause does not have laboratory diagnostic criteria. Based on statistics and lack of hormonal evidence, I would say perimenopause is very unlikely and menopause is not present. BTW, I am assuming your prolactin is expressed in SI units, you being from the civilized country to the north of us. ...Read more

Blood post menopausal test: estradiol <111; FSH 19-151; LH 14.2-52.3; progesterone <2.7 what does this indicate plse?

Blood post menopausal test: estradiol <111; FSH 19-151; LH 14.2-52.3; progesterone <2.7 what does this indicate plse?

Menopause: The lab tests suggest that you may be perimenopausal. That means that your cycles may become more irregular, you may start or have hot flashes now, and the chances of getting pregnant with your own eggs is very low. It doesn't say when you will stop having periods or that you can't get pregnant, just a very low chance with your own eggs. Using an egg donor is an option if you want to get pregnant. ...Read more

How to know if pre menopausal? Still get totally regular periods. Fsh 2.8, estradiol 17b=78 results from today and just started period. Insights??

Regular periods: If I read your question I think your periods are OK, but for comfort I strongly recommend you make an appointment to see your Gynecologist.

Please let me know how things go. ...Read more

43 years old, still get regular periods. Started period today, yesterday had labs- Fsh = 2.8 and estradiol 17b = 78. Normal, or is it pre-menopause?

43 years old, still get regular periods. Started period today, yesterday had labs- Fsh = 2.8 and estradiol 17b = 78. Normal, or is it pre-menopause?

Normal: FSH of 2.8 is normal although your estrogen level is slightly elevated for this time of your cycle (could have a very small cyst). I usually recommend getting these labs drawn on cycle day 2-3 (cycle day 1 is first day of full flow) to make the test more accurate. A better test of your egg reserve is AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) which can be drawn any day of your cycle. ...Read more

Me: 31, premature menopause, FSH is 120, amh is 0, 16. Medicine: estradiol, progesterone, dhea & coq10. Is there a chance I can get pregnant naturally?

Me: 31, premature menopause, FSH is 120, amh is 0, 16. Medicine: estradiol, progesterone, dhea & coq10. Is there a chance I can get pregnant naturally?

Elevated FSH: Since the fsh is elevated, you may have fewer normal eggs than others your age. Still, it doesn't mean that you have no normal eggs. However, the chance for success with ivf or other art procedures is low. Oocyte donation may be your best option. ...Read more

I am 25 with low estradiol and all symptoms to go along. Thyroid good and lh, FSH seems fine too at level 6. What is cause low estro? What to check?

Pituitary? PCOS?: The major question is: are you getting a period? If you are getting them regularly, the Estradiol levels are not abnormal. Estradiol levels vary through the menstrual cycle. If you are not getting your period, one needs to consider possible causes like high prolactin, other pituitary disease, or polycystic ovarian syndrome. ...Read more

What is normal range for LH, FSH, progesterone, and estradiol levels when taken on day 3 of period?

What is normal range for LH, FSH, progesterone, and estradiol levels when taken on day 3 of period?

Depends on lab: Different laboratories can have reference values for LH, FSH, progesterone, and estradiol that differ from each other. Moreover, the nature of the test can have an impact on those reference values. The lab at which the tests were run will need to be approached for the type of test that was used and the reference values for that specific lab. ...Read more

My FSH and LH levels were both super low at 0.1. But my estradiol was normal. Could this mean a pituitary tumor?

Not enough info: Can't answer your question from that information. LH/FSH varies during the cycle. Those values are a bit low even for the luteal phase. But what else is going on? Why was it done? Are you having normal cycles? Are you menstruating at all? Is your prolactin elevated? I assume you are not taking estrogens. Tiny pituitary tumors are common, and may not be significant. See your doctor. ...Read more

My FSH level is <0.2, LH level is 0.4, estradiol is 21.6. Just got my most recent T level and its 371. Would this mean I have secondary hypogonadism?

My FSH level is <0.2, LH level is 0.4, estradiol is 21.6. Just got my most recent T level and its 371. Would this mean I have secondary hypogonadism?

Nope!: Your Total T is presumably normal (371 is generally in normal range for most labs) so this lab by itself doesn't represent hypogonadism. Your FSH is suppressed & LH is low because you're taking Axiron, a prescription topical T product. Once you start T replacement, there's no need to check FSH & LH. However, checking both FSH & LH are useful prior to starting TRT to determine cause of hypogonadism ...Read more

I have premature ovarian failure. My FSH level is 13.6 mIU/mL, LH 12.5 mIU, prolactin 14.53 ng/mL estradiol 449.1 pmol/L. What does this mean please?

Looks normal: All the hormone values listed, including estradiol, lh, fsh, look normal. Premature ovarian failure is essentially premature menopause. Lh should be higher, and Estradiol lower. Are you sure of the diagnosis? I presume your periods have stopped. Maybe you should see an endocrinologist or gyn who is expert in this. ...Read more

If trying to get pregnant @ age 34. What should I expect to see as a normal estradiol level & FSH level?

Ovarian reserve: Fsh rises as the ovaries age. Levels normally change during the menstrual cycle. It is best obtained on the third day of the cycle. Levels should be less than 9. As for estradiol, it also should be obtained on the third day of the cycle and it should be less than 50. Levels above 80 signify diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more

My blood levels of antimullerian-hormone (AMH)=0.91 ng/ml, day 3 FSH=6.1mIU/mL, LH=6.7mIU/mL, Estradiol=80.66 pg/ml. Does this indicate low fertility?

My blood levels of antimullerian-hormone (AMH)=0.91 ng/ml, day 3 FSH=6.1mIU/mL, LH=6.7mIU/mL, Estradiol=80.66 pg/ml. Does this indicate low fertility?

No: Low AMH levels in women under 35 are not very predictable. You may have to do 1 IVF cycle to see the response. The Estradiol of 80 is slightly high. I do not have your entire medical chart so it is not easy to comment. However, your FSH and LH levels are normal. In general, looking at the overall results, you should be able to conceive. ...Read more

My prolactin level's 749, fsh-5.7, lh-5.4, estradiol-34, trying to conceive but no results.3misscariages and 1extrauterine pregnancy. What's the problem?

Double check: Are you saying your prolactin level is 749 or is this a decimal-point error? Also is that in units of micrograms/liter? If both these things are true your prolactin level is around 50 times higher than normal. If both these things are correct you need to see an endocrinologist or a reproductive endocrinologist immediately! If this is an error, then sorry for the alarm. ...Read more

My hormone levels one day before my period are-Estradiol=60.53 pg/ml; FSH= 4.9 mIU/ml; LH 3.6 mIU/ml. Are they perfect for a female for conception?

My hormone levels one day before my period are-Estradiol=60.53 pg/ml; FSH= 4.9 mIU/ml; LH 3.6 mIU/ml. Are they perfect for a female for conception?

No valid: So it just so happens that you checked your hormones levels at probably the worse time. If you want to know more about your ovaries, they you want to check on day 1, 2 or 3 of your period. If you want to know more about your ovulation, you would check your progesterone 1 week before your period. So not sure what to make of hormones drawn at this time. ...Read more

Are my hormone levels ok? Lh serum-9.7; fsh-7.1; estradiol-991; progesterone-1.9. All done on 12 day of cycle. Thyroid is hyper 3-4 months every year

Depends: The doctor that ordered these tests had a plan in mind with what to do with the information they provide as they were ordered based on your history and symptoms that you discussed with your doctor. You should schedule an appointment to sit down with your provider to go over the results and how they affect your health issues. ...Read more

My estradiol level was 305 around day 10. My FSH was 8.4 and Lh 2.7. tSH 0.44 and free T4 14.4. Do these seem normal?

TSH and T4: Your TSH is slightly on the low side and free T4 a bit high.
If you are not taking any thyroid meds you should probably have some thyroid imaging done. Check with your doctor.

Your estradiol level can be evaluated once more is known about your thyroid. ...Read more
