Hi Peter,

Sorry to trouble you but I can't seem to find anywhere on the web that can help me.

I chat to women in the US (and elsewhere) doing IVF and their E2 numbers seem to be in different units to those my clinic use. When I say to them my E2 was 2.04 they scratch their heads as all their levels come back in the 1000's.

I asked what units mine were measured in and I think the nurse said nmol/L. In the US I think they use pg/mL.

Could you tell me how to convert from UK to US units is please? Thanks!

Thanks for replying but maybe you misunderstood or maybe I wasn't too clear.

In the US they use pg/mL but over here is is nmol/L.

Different units entirely and I just want to know how to convert from one to the other.

Thanks,

Oh I see. mL to L is times 1000 and pg to nmol in another 100 or so, this will bring you close

Good luck!
