tommywantwingy :  If results are within th normal range, doctors often don’t call. Phone your doctor and make an appointment to discuss next steps.

i got a call from a nurse a couple days later.  I’ll go check the POAS threads because I’m sure I put the actual dates of the test vs results there, but if I remember correctly it was no more than a week.  They called to tell me everything was normal, and when I asked she even gave me exact numbers to write down.  I had a full thyroid panel done–I don’t believe I had anything else tested, at the time.

ETA: that said, since you already have your results, maybe your doctor/ a nurse won’t call.

tommywantwingy :  Estradiol 45 pg/mL – this usually indicates that you’re early in your cycle.  Usually <50 is “rest state” and your follicles havent started developing yet (this is what they look for when starting medicated cycles).  Usually by the time you ovulate, estradiol should be around 200.

Testosterone, Total 51 ng/dL – I believe this is normal range for adult females.  A high number would be an indicator of PCOS.

FSH 5.4 mIU/mL – This in normal range.  A very high FSH at rest state would indicate your body is pumping out a lot of FSH cause it’s not getting it’s desired response.  Even during cycles when I was taking stims, my FSH was only around 9-11.

tommywantwingy :  I’m not really sure about how BMI effects fertility and hormones.  I’ve only ever been in the “normal” rage (about 21) so it’s not something I’ve looked into.  If your e2 is always low around 50, and doesn’t increase in your cycle, then it understandable that your lining is not really developing… it requires e2 to build.  FSH stimulates the follicles to grow, the follicles in turn release the e2 which thickens the lining.
