My counts after PSCT were FSH-143,LH-60,Estradiol-24 and TSH-82, my counts have returned to FSH-13, LH-7, Estradiol-321 and TSH-3.26. My ovarian reserve is lower but are there any chances of concieveing with a normal menses with these counts?


Hormone levels are thought to

Hormone levels are thought to be the sure-fire way to tell whether or not you can get pregnant. Instead, it's more of a "you're more or less likely to get prgnant." That's why looking at a certain set of numbers can give you a hint, but not a definate answer.

You didn't say what day your levels were taken on, so that muddies the water, too. Your estradiol seems high and there is some evidence that an elevated day 3 estradiol indicates a problem with ovarian reserve. This is sometimes the case, but often the issue is just that the elevated estrogen level is "masking" the potential for detecting low reserve by suppressing FSH into the normal range.

Your FSH is on the low side of high. To keep it in perspective, in menopause, the level is often around 40. So, slightly elevated FSH may be an indication of poor ovarian reserve, but not a huge concern alone.

As for your TSH, the "normal" reference range for the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) blood test runs from approximately .5 to 5.0.

Good luck!

My counts were taken 3 days

My counts were taken 3 days before menstruation commenced.
My ovarian reserve is low because of high dose chemotherapy.
I am re taking a blood test this month on day 3 which will enhance our knowledge on how my ovaries are really functioning and how the stem cell transplant really affected them.
Thanks for your insight and I will post new counts in January after my lab results have been read.
