i would suggest talking to Turtle (omg i dont remember the rest of her screen name). She is on the 1+ TTC board and helped me decipher my results and calm me down alot. She is an angel.   Your E2 is in a good range and the FSH is just above the border for average.  I would definitely wait until your follow up meeting.  FWIW i am in the same boat.  My day 4 FSH was 10.2 with E2 of 180.  We are in the middle of my monitored cycle to see if i’m ovulating and then my RE will recommend treatment.  The treatments range but age is a big factor apparently. The younger you are the better your odds. 

It sucks. Really sucks.  DM me if you feel like it.

Caveat: All of the following statements are based on my Re’s work-up of me, but we went in knowing that we would require IVF from the get-go. Cut-offs may be different for someone desiring less intervention.

My RE said anything under 50 is “good” for e2.

As to your other questions, I can’t really help. DH is the one with high FSH (your #s look good next to his. hahaha). My RE wants FSH to be less than 10. So by my RE’s cut-off, you are just barely in the “high” category.

Each RE, and each lab, have their own thresholds. It may be a good idea to ask your RE what the thresholds are for that RE practice, as the answers you find here may not jive with their approach.

And if I may offer a general word of advice, beware Dr. Google. Dr. Google will have yyu thinking the absolute worst, and that only adds to what is already a stressful situation. When it comes to treatment plans and stuff, your nurse and RE are your very best allies.

Also, the ladies on the 1+ TTC thread have been so welcoming and kind to me as a relative newbie. Feel free to pop-in if you want to. Best wishes. 🙂
