    Hi, the only one I can really help you with is fsh, 3 is very good. However, unless this was taken on day 2 or 3 of your cycle I'm afraid it doesn't mean much. I believe that having a 1:1 ratio of fsh:lh is good, that's the ideal, but again it needs to be in the first 3 days of AF.

    I'm 44 and had my fsh done a few months ago, it was something like 6.5 which was great for my age. However, it was done on what I thought may turn out to be cd1 but in the end it was cd 29 of a 30 day cycle. I was told it wouldn't make much difference but when I had it tested again recently it was 10.5, that was on day 2. Ideally you should be under 10 but 10.5 isn't too bad for my age. FSH does vary from month to month but I don't think it should be huge variations.

    I expect some of the other ladies with better knowledge will be able to help.

    Syd is right. The results are good but mean nothing unless done before day 5 in cycle. Also, you need to have estrogen tested at the same time as if it is very high then it can suppress fsh and make it appear lower than what it is xx

    I've no idea what happens in that situation, maybe those levels mean something in that context? Do you have an appointment to discuss them?

    Good luck!
