Hello Anitha and welcome,

Your complaints may be due to hormonal issues or related to the autoimmune disorder. Kindly inform what disorder it is for a better consultation.

High FSH levels may be seen in a condition called PCOD or POF. The best way to know this is by getting hormonal profile evaluated for FSH, LH, Estradiol, Thyroid and prolactin as well as an ultrasound to rule out ovarian cysts [ as they too cause abnormal periods]. So please get these done and discuss the results with your doctor for proper treatment.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
