I am w/o a pituitary gland. I am on replacement medications. Like estradiol and progesterone. I found out I have very low fsh. Can i get pregnant?

I am w/o a pituitary gland. I am on replacement medications. Like estradiol and progesterone. I found out I have very low fsh. Can i get pregnant?

Gonadotropins: Since fsh and lh are pituitary hormones if you really have no pituitary function (pan-hypopituitarism) it is not surprising your fsh would be near zero. As long as your ovaries and reproductive tract are normal (probably they are) it is very possible to get pregnant with drugs that contain fsh and lh, we do it all the time. Good luck. ...Read more

My FSH and LH levels are Normal could I still be premenopausal? My past 3 cycles where longer at 30,31 and 37. I am TTC. And geting worried and stres

Unlikely : it is unlikely that you are premenopausal both because of your age and normal fsh levels. Having a 37 day cycle is abnormal though. Make sure that you have been checked for hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, and pcos. Also, ask to have an anti-mullerian hormone level checked. Have your partner get a semen analysis because up to 40% of infertility could be him. Consider seeing an infertility MD. ...Read more

I am pregnant and unsure how far along I am by my hormones levels are 760? My last was 06.17.2015

4 weeks plus: You are just over 4 weeks pregnant as calculated from your last period and your hormone levels are consistent with this. Because hormone levels change rapidly and vary somewhat with the pregnancy, they are not useful in determining how far along you are. Early ultrasound is more useful for this, and your last period is a good guide if you are regular. ...Read more

I just had my FSH level tested about 2.5 weeks after I menstruated per my OBGYN. I am 39 and my level was 4.5. is that a good number.

Hard to say: The FSH should be checked on the 3rd day (CD 3) of your menstrual cycle to be interpreted. It sound like yours was tested sometime after ovulation; there is no meaningful way to interpret the number at that time. Talk to your doctor about the reasons, and good wishes. ...Read more

Hi! I am 16 weeks pregnant, age 30, 127lbs, and my AFP levels from a blood test came at 31 ng/ml. Am i within a normal range or am i too high/too low?

AFP : AFP results are reported as mom, or multiple of the mean. This is calculated based on such parameters as weight and race and gestational age. Usually, anything between 0.5 and 2.5 mom is considered normal. Approx. 2% of AFP levels are high and about 3% are low. Of those that are high, about 10% will have a birth defect like spina bifida. Low AFP levels can indicate down's synd. ...Read more
