High Estrogen and High FSH(4 posts) (3 voices)
Does anyone know what my high estrogen could mean? Is it good or bad? All that I have read is that estrogen should drop with POF????
What is your FSH? I have been diagnosed with POF. My highest FSH was 67.3. I don't remember what my estrogen was at. I just had another FSH test done this past Monday, August 16th, on cycle day 14 and it came back at 19.3. When I was tested at 67.3, my doctor put me on estrogen patches and said I would not have anymore periods and that he would have to start them for me. Well I had two very healthy periods two months after he told me this. I went in on the 16th for a follow up from being on the patches for 6 wks. He did an intrauterine sonogram and found 3 folicles on my right ovary. He was shocked to see any. He then ordered the FSH, estrogen and pogesterone test. I will go back on cycle day three to get a better reading. He said he expected my FSH to be high during mid cycle. My husgand and I had given up hope for another child and started getting on with life. We had done three cycles of COH and nothing happened. When we started the injections, my FSH was 14 on cycle day 3. It had jumped to 67.3 in nine months. I have done nothing in the way of changing my diet. I just gave up hope for another child and focused on the one healthy three year old we do have. I think maybe being relaxed may have played a part in my FSH level dropping. I cannot wait to see what it comes back at on cycle day 3!! If it is low enough, we will do another round of injections (COH).
hello, I was trying to follow your words...but at the end you said your FSH was 14 then in 9 months went up to 67.3. Then you speak of just relaxing and it went down again. Is that what happened? If so good for you!! Good luck on your next round of meds. What is COH??? I dont know if I really have POF or what. I think I have diminished ovarian reserve. My FSH was 16 & E2 was 120, then my FSH was 3.2 & E2 was 101. Now my FSH is 15 & E2 is normal. My RE wants me to start meds next cycle. He will also take a second look via ultra sound.
He says I am boarder line. Who knows. Did you do IVF? or injections with IUI?
Yes that is what happened. COH is Controlled Ovulatory Hyperstimulation. That is the injectable drugs. NO IVF. You can either have sex or they will do IUI (Intrauterine insemination). It depends on how well your husband's sperm is if they do IUI. You inject the drugs and they monitor your follicles, lining of your uterus and your estrogen level. When everything is where it should be, they have you inject HCG and you come back in 48 hours for IUI or you have sex when they tell you to.
