I'm 38 soon to be 39. I have two children, but want to try for one more before I get too old. I called the nurse this morning and she told me doctor will call me back later today to discuss my results:
Fasting Glucose: 98
The blood work was taken on day 3 of my menstrual cycle. Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks~
I forgot to mention my menstruation cycle is 21 days as opposed to 28 days. It has been like this since I was 12 years old so it's considered normal in my case. I remember when I first got pregnant (wasn't trying) but I believe I conceived a few days before my expected period. Same with my second pregnancy. Does this mean my ovulation occurs late even though I have a short menstruation cycle?
How does progesterone and fsh correlate. My doctor told me he will wait to see what my progesterone level is. Thanks again.
I think your prolactin is a touch high. Usually is below 10, but often not a concern until more than 100. Are you BFing? (which would make it completely normal). Elevated prolactin is a common cause of infertlity - and can often be easily treated.
Curious what your doctor says. Best wishes for finding an answer soon :)

Thank you to both responses. My doctor wants me to get retested in a couple months for prolactin. If it's still elevated, he will order an MRI to rule out a tumor. I hope it's not a tumor. I will be getting my progesterone levels tested on day 21.
I stopped breastfeeding 2 years ago, but had a chemical pregnancy last year. Maybe it was due to high prolactin levels, but I never had my levels tested back then.
