Interpretation

Follicle stimulation hormon (FSH)

3.5-16.0IU/L

High FSH (��12IU/L) level reflects lower and diminished ovarian reserve. Can be an indication of pre-mature ovarian failure.

Luteinizing hormone (LH)

<15.0IU/L

A LH ratio which is higher than FSH indicates PCOS or probability of anovulation

Prolactin

1.4-24.2ug/L

A high level of prolactin is called hyperprolactinemia; and needs to be treated.

Estradiol (E2)

70-670pmol/L

A high Day 3 estradiol level suggests poor ovarian reserve. The estradiol level rises in the follicular phase as the follicle matures, and is very useful for measuring follicular activity. A mature follicles produces more than 200-300 pg/ml of estradiol; and serial E2 levels are often measured for monitoring superovulation in IUI and IVF treatment cycles.

Progesterone (P4)

0.5-5.0nmol/L

The progesterone level should be more than 15 ng/ml about 7 days after ovulation. This suggests that the corpus luteum is functioning normally. A low Day 21 progesterone levels suggests the cycles was anovulatory ( no egg was produced).

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone

0.4-3.8uIU/ml

If the TSH level is abnormal, the doctor will need to measure the levels of your thyorid hormones ( T3 and T4).

Free T3 (Triiodothyronine) 1.4 - 4.4 pg/ml


Free T4 (Thyroxine) 0.8 - 2.0 ng/dl
