my understanding is that FSH of 10-15 is borderline. If you're not trying IVF, it shouldn't matter (clinics sometimes have cutoff levels as they can't overstimulate ovaries when the high FSH level already can't do it). You should also understand that FSH levels vary from month to month, and that several women have had BFPs with high FSH (like 30 or 40). But, you're levels also signal that you aren't at the level of a 25 yo. Just something to keep in mind.

hope that helps,

Like the PP said, I think it is borderline.

I think you're okay. My RE wanted numbers below 11 so you're right there. As the pp said - the number does fluctuate, and it's just a number. The FSH is just one of many numbers your doctor will tell you and it's the combination of everything plus the all important UNKNOWN that decides things - not just one number.

Keep the faith!
