Need some advice -- bloodwork back
12

I got my results back from the bloodwork/SA. Good news is that my DH has incredible sperm. Bad news is that my LH is too high for CD 3. Does this make me a Clomid candidate? If not, what does it mean? The frustrating thing is that I am going away for 2 weeks so I can't see the doctor until the 14th of April, which pretty much obliterates my chances for this month, not to mention getting any answers about what is wrong with me.

The nurse gave me the results and told me that my DH was "fine" but that the doctor wanted to make an appointment with me b/c he thought something was wrong with my ovulation. I asked if I could come in and get a copy of the results and she said yes. So I have them here with me now -- FSH 9.9; LH 9.3; TSH 3.704. Can anyone help me interpret these numbers? From what little I can tell, the LH is high but the others are fine.

I am doing fine. I was a little surprised to hear her say over the phone that my results were not great, but otherwise I am not upset. I am mostly grateful that my DH's numbers were so great (110 million! 95% motility! woo hoo!!)

I would really really love some input here if you can find me in the chaos of this board!

Thanks, E. As always, you know just what to say. I am feeling a little worse about things today but I guess that is to be expected. I think I will feel better again tomorrow. I mostly just dislike preparing for a trip -- I haven't started packing yet and we leave in 4 hours!

My DH was excited about his results, I could tell, but he wouldn't indulge in any of it. It was like he was in denial -- he kept saying the tests could be wrong and that it could be his "fault" after all. We actually fought about it! Stress, I guess.

Thanks for the reassuring. The timing of this trip is not great, but we *have* to leave so there isn't much sense in bemoaning it.

Hope AF isn't being too mean.

Crystal,

I have tried a Google search and mostly stuff about PCOS comes up. From what I can tell, I don't have any of the other symptoms of that so I'm not going to borrow that trouble for the time being. The doctor is only in on Monday and Wednesday so maybe I will call then and see if he will speak with me on the phone.

I'm scared!

Thanks so much for your support.

Jenny
