Test results before referral

So I now have all of my test results and while I am glad the doctors seem to have ran all the tests needed - the ones I've seen to discuss my results just don't have a clue. So I am wondering if you ladies can help me make sense of them. From what I see, it all points to PCOS.

Here are my results for my 20 day cycle:

Progesterone (taken on cd14) <3.0

LH (taken on cd2) 19.7
FSH (taken on cd2) 6.4
Prolactin (taken on cd2) 265
Oestradiol (taken on cd2) 144
Testosterone MS (taken on cd2) 1.0
SHBG (taken on cd2) 12
FA Index (taken on cd2) 8.3

LH, Oestradiol, SHBG and FA Index were all abnormal

There is a classic LH;FSH imbalance which in itself is indicative of PCOS. The progesterone should have been taken a week later but as it showed 3 on day 14, it would not have made any real difference to that overall result.

You should be referred to a subfertility unit and asap.

my cycles are 20 days long so the test was done as close to 7 days before start of period as we could get

Do you spot before period?
I think long irregular cycles are more common with pcos.
How long ttc? How old are you?

I don't generally spot, af usually lasts about 6 days. We're just turning 24 and have actively been trying for about 2 years, not using contraceptive for about 4 years

I assume as you got the prog test at the right time you are probably focussing on ttc at the start of the month?
I had 3 blood tests for prog to confirm pcos and then clinic did a scan too.
You will probably need a sperm test too.
Hopefully the gp will refer you- 4 yrs with no contraception is a long time.

We are getting referred and partner is in the process of doing his sperm tests
