Hi there
Can someone please talk me through FSH levels? Not sure how they change over the cycle.

Been ttc for 10 months, have one LO who is 3.5yrs. Took 17 months to conceive first time then had a mc. Then got pg with our LB a few months later.
Had a very early mc/ CP 11 month ago.

I have had some bloods done.
21 day progesterone was 30, which they tell me is ok.

Unfortunately I have had the others done on CD 8 instead of the the recommended CD 5.

FSH 9.1
LH 5
Prolactin 78
Oestradiol 211

I believe the other bloods should be done on day 2/3, not day 5, of your cycle!

The level they look for for Ovulation is >30.

So i had quite alone of bloods done.
Are these all the ones that need doing on cd3?

Yes, the FSH and LH and prolactin should be done on day 3 along with a full blood test too!

All other bloods were fine apart from low vit d

I'll have to make a phone appt to get the bloods approved then wait for next cd1 I guess.
