In brief: Hormone testing

Testing for fertility potential (ovarian reserve) test on day 3 of cycle, first day of bleeding being day 1.
For Progesterone measurements of ovulation measure about day 23. Someone on the pill and wanting to test for menopause, measure fsh & lh on the friday pm before starting the new pack - assuming a sunday start. With no menses and menopausal symptoms measure these labs anytime.
