Hello, had blood tests - seeing cons next week but anyone know what these mean?
FSH 9.6, Oestradiol 139 and AMH 8.7.
Just want to be prepared and grateful for any thoughts - I am new to all this. Thank you..

Do you know what day of your cycle the blood tests were done on?

Are your cycles regular?

Did you find any answers? IMHO I'd say your tests look great. I don't know anything about Oestradiol, but I understand that while FSH can fluctuate a bit +/- each month, anything under 10 is good. However, although I was kicked out of a fertility clinic because my day 3 FSH was 19.5 (aged 43), I then conceived my gorgeous DD naturally the very same month! Ha ha!

I've never had an AMH test but think it estimates quantity (but not quality) of remaining eggs. I found some reference ranges online:

Did you see the TTC over 40 thread at:

Chewy speaks a lot of sense

Brilliant that they are day 3 results, and amh looks pretty good.

Have you got an appointment with a specialist?
