Hi Peter,
I wonder if you can give me any reassurance/advice;
I have just had results of blood tests which have been done to check my hormone levels with a view of starting my first ivf cycle, I have had a bit of a shock as my FHS & LH levels are high for my age (just gone 36) & am having to be re-tested & an ovary reserve test done this week,my clinic didn't give me any possible causes for these high levels & all I have in my mind is that i must be heading for an early menopause due to them doing the ovary reserve test- are there any other possible reasons why my hormones are so high? i would be very grateful of any help/imformation that you can give me on this subject,
Thanks a million,
Julie Mole.

Dear Julie,

LH and FSH levels are constantly changing as part of the normal cycle so don't be worried about high results from a single test. What you need to do is to have more tests and make a thorough investigation into what is going on. Early menopause is relatively rare so I would not worry too much about that at this stage. Try to find your reassurance from your clinic and the tests they have planned for you.

Hope this helps!
