Response to Re: an RE clinic is a business
The good news is that your e2 is low (lower than 20 is low, higher than 80 is high) with high FSH, which means you will probably respond to treatments to lower FSH. If your e2 is too high, then it means your FSH actually should be higher, since e2 suppresses FSH.
I also had low e2 at the beginning of this cycle and FSH=22. I had a few follies visible on u/s, but they were smaller than they should have been, consistent with low e2. All my RE did was Rx estradiol to aid follicle development and I ovulated CD15/16 and had a 18mm CL cyst visible on u/s. I don't know what it did to my FSH, as FSH goes everywhere after CD5 and should not be tested until the next cycle, so we'll see what happens.
