Hi i recently had a blood test for PCOS because my cycles can vary from 40-60 days and I struggle to lose weight and a few other factors. Thankfully it looks like I have no "biochemical indicators" for PCOS, ive still got to have an ultrasound to confirm but its looking good.
However im still confused by the rest of the results Ive been given can anyone help me decipher them lol??
The blood test was taken on the last day of my last period
Prolactin: 152
Testosterone 1.0
LH: 2.9
FSH: 7.3
Sex Hormone BG :32
Free andogens 3.1

Are these levels ok for conceiving or not? has anyone else had similar result.
Thank you Ive been trying to conceive for 6 months which i know isnt long in the grand scheme of things but when you have other weird thiings going on its just worrying

It's possible to have 'normal' bloods and still have polycystic ovaries. A scan can confirm for sure. I was in this position - alomost normal bloods but scans showed both ovaries are polycystic. I had no other PCOS symptoms aside from issues conceiving.
The test should really be done on day 3 of your cycle. Was it? More info here: www.fertilityplus.com/faq/hormonelevels.html
Good luck!

If you have weight issues they should test for glucose too. Do you know that you definitely ovulate? You can have periods yet not ovulate. Ovulation is tested on day 21 of a 28 day cycle by measuring progesterone. If you have longer, irregular cycles that's a sign of possible PCOS and timing this test is harder. Try using ovulation tests and getting the test done 7 days after you see an ovulation surge.
