@Natinat6: I wouldn’t worry excessively about the home test. I’ve read that they aren’t always reliable.  But better safe than sorry, and a blood FSH test with you GYN is easy for them to order, and quick to result.  I wouldn’t worry about a full infertility workup or anything, but it’s easy enough for you and the doc to check FSH and thyroid and maybe prolactin and get a better picture of where you’re at. 

And just remember, people with good numbers can have trouble getting pregnant, and people with concerning factors may get pregnant easily or without any intervention.  There are lots of examples of both on these boards 🙂 Good luck!

I wouldn’t put too much stock into those tests. Maybe charting and Taking Charge of Your Fertility might be helpful if you are planning on TTC in the near future.

@Natinat6: hey there doll. i posted this a while back but i will repost. i took the same test and i think they are good because they make us aware but i also think the blood test is the way to go. have them test on day three of your period for E2, FSH, and AMH. some women get a false negative on this test and some get a false positive but keep in mind that AMH flucctuactes less that FSH so that might be a better indicator. the good news is my amh came out low and my fsh boderline high but i just got pregnant this month. it’s good to be aware and not take fertility for granted but i also think we shouldnt panic. Pantera peach also got a bfp after hearing she had super low AMH. here is the article i mentioned:
