What does it mean if these blood tests come back 'see doctor'?

They are FSH, LH, and binding globulin. Google searches are boggling my mind.

It means that the doctor will explain what they mean to you. It doesn't necessarily mean anything bad though.

It is not me, it's a friend. Just wanted to do a bit of prep so I could help her out/talk to her with some understanding after her appointment.

The FSH is usually to test for early menopause. I don't know LH or binding globulin.

They may be checking to see if PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is an issue. This is a common problem and can and does affect fertility.

SHBG can also be checked for with regards to PCOS as the levels are often elevated.
