I FINALLY found a thread on a forum where people were discussing something that I have researching since I got my blood results back! I am hopeful some of you ladies can read my post below and give me some analysis. I am new here and trying to learn about all of this information as quickly as possible
My post is below:
Can someone please explain this further?
I had my CD1 and CD3 blood work done. RE did it on day 1 and OB did it on day 3
RE results: FSH 10.5 LH 3.9 and Estradiol 21
OB results: FSH 13 LH n/t and Estradiol 12
I also had AMH done and got a .55 and an AFC done day 1 and it was 8.
Because I am trying to research the meaning behind all of this and ask a RE to explain what it means her interpretation was that my estradiol being low was better in her mind, than it being too high. She said it would work better for stimulation. She also felt concerned that the test my OB ran was not fully accurate because she said that level was too low and by lab standards the output that low was not a measurable scale and she felt something was wrong with their number.
She is a practicing RE/Obgyn who works for a major teaching university and a highly regarded RE center.
My Ob works for a large local practice but uses a local lab for their blood work.
I read this thread and was THRILLED to find it because you usually see FSH numbers like mine correlated with high estradiol number. My scenario is not the one you typically see. On another forum some poster commented that is was "much worse to have a high FSH and low estradiol" but she never explained why.
I am in desperate need of clarification and it seems like I am still not getting it fully. I suppose I should just go with my RE's analysis but of course it is never enough for me to do so.
Thanks for any insight you guys can give
