I need help... First of all, I'm in the US, so I understand things are a little different. But my questions will pretty much be universal.
So, I went to my obgyn Monday and he ordered tests to check LH, FSH, and prolactin levels... basically, the LH:FSH ratio is a little over 3:1. I haven't had a period since May, so first of all i'm not positive how accurate that test may be. Levels were FSH around 7 and LH around 25. Now, he wants to put me on provera (progesterone supplement) in order to get a cycle going.. but he didn't even check my Progesterone levels. I don't want to start medicine that will raise something without knowing the level to begin with. The only other hormone that was checked was TSH (2.58) and prolactin (around 6). I'm not sure why he didn't check other hormones??
I don't know if I have PCOS or not.... i have some symptoms, but no diagnosis.
I guess my question should be...
1) Are LH and progesterone one and the same? Or is it something that is directly affected
2) Is it smart to wait on taking the provera?
3) Anyone knowledgeable about thyroid?
I also wasn't provided with any ranges for these hormones, and looked things up on the internet to get an "idea" of a range. They won't call me on the phone, but posted the results online for me to look at and I have been trying to email them back and forth.
