hormone levels test results can someone please advise?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I had these tests done 2 months ago and the dr. office called and said all is normal, and i did go on to conceive the following cycle and at my first prenatal visit today i asked for the results and i've been reading over them and while all numbers are in normal range except 1. FWIW the blood test was done during my midcycle peak. So my LH (luteinizing hormone) was 93.9 mIU/mL and normal range for midcycle is 8.7 to 76.3. Anyone know what that could mean? My T4 was pretty low/normal .9 ng/dL normal range is .8-1.8. Like i said i did conceive,after many months of trying, but i had been having bad headaches and fatigue at the time the tests were done, so just wanting to find out about the LH being so high if anyone knows anything about that please share, TIA!

Were you ovulating when the test was performed? LH surges mid cycle to tell the egg to release. It sounds like you got the test on the day your LH was surging - you probably ovulated soon after.

Oh, I should add, I used to get hormonal headaches/migraines and fatigue from the rapid rise of hormones around ovulation - I wonder if that is what happened to you re: the headaches. Some women get them right before AF, I got them at ovulation *shrugs* I'm guessing that maybe you did too.
