Hi tanya
Welcome to healthcare magic.
The lh and fsh tests will give different results if done on different days of the cycle, since they are hormones and their levels keep on changing in body.
So please do it as advised by your doctor only and not on any day .If you are trying for conceiving she might have told to get of it done midcycle but for any other condition it would be different .
Thank you.

Hello.welcome to HCM.LH is to be done on 15th day of cycle and FSH is to be done on 3rd day of cycle.probably your gynae is suspecting PCOS for which other hormonal investigations are also required.
