FSH and LH

I am getting ready to meet with a specialist next week, but I had a question to ask before I go. I received copies of my receny bloodwork, which gives me an LH of 8.4 ml and FSH of 4.4. My question is, do these numbers reflect PCOS? ???

And on an additional note, how reliable is this information when blood was taken on CD 23? I have read that it should be done on CD 3, so I am curious! ???

The only hormone level critical to be drawn on day 3 is FSH. You cannot make the diagnosis of polycystic ovaries on the basis of blood work, alone, unless you find an elevated insulin level.
Good luck.

Thank you so much for your response! My insulin level was WNL. I found it hard to believe that all of a sudden I was PCOS, but a laporoscopy did not pick that up! Thank goodness I will be meeting with an RE next week! Thank you again!
