Response to fsh only counts if it's tested on days 2-3 of your period

thanks for your response. blood test was done to test hormone levels and that was the FSH reading...not sure how accurate these readings are when period is absent, since as you said it is normally done day 2-3 of cycle.
I train 3-4 days a week, averaging 20-40 miles a week. Originally, RE thought it was due to exercise, until he saw my FSH levels and then was convinced exercise played no role in this. Did an ultrasound and said thin lining of the uterus and small ovaries was consistent with menopause given high FSH levels.
Not prepared to give up hope yet. A little nervous to go on BC pills, but if that will help me, then I'll do it.
