confused by LH blood test results

Hi ladies,

So I've been TTC for the past 3 months, and so far no luck. My AF has been going weirder and weirder, last cycle was 46 days and ended with a very light not even 2 day long AF. I saw my ob/gyn this Monday (11/28) and after he determined that I didn't ovulate at all this past cycle (hence the light short AF) he had me do some blood work. I just got the results and here they are:

LSH: 11.8

LH: 66.2

Prolactin: 7.9

So, the LSH and Prolactin are within norm, but what about the LH? It's pretty high, and now I'm not sure: is it because it was my LH surge day, or is it just abnormally elevated and that's what's causing my irregular cycles?

I've been googling it for a few hours now and basically it seems like I should be worried if both LH and FSH were high, am I correct? This is so stressful. I happened to BD a day before my bloodwork and a day after, so if it was a LH surge I might have a shot at pregnancy. But if this is just an indicator of something being wrong with my body, then I shouldn't bother BDing.

I'd appreciate any input...

Here's some more hope! Your temp is probably so high from a combination of both -O'ing & moving around -esp if your regular pre/no O temp is high 96ish. Did you test at the same time that you normally would have? Keep your thermometer right beside the bed & test in the am.

Sounds like you O'd & the crampiness is probably just post O cramps...

I had post o cramps 2dpo last month. They were so strong I thought I had my ovulation date wrong.

So my GP got back to me - she said she's pretty sure it sounds like it was the LH surge! Which gives me hope -

That's good news. Hopefully you won't need to worry about af showing any time soon!! Just remember that a 14 day lp is considered the average, so *if* af is gonna show, it very well could be sooner than 14 days.

Good luck!
