In brief: LH can vary

Depending upon when it was drawn.
There is a surge of lh prior to ovulation. Low levels of estrogen can cause higher lh as well. No one knows the cause of polycystic ovarian disease, but it results from Insulin resistance and has a significant genetic component, plus it gets much worse with weight gain.
