Suggest treatment for low sprem count

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per history you are having elevated Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
Your doctor is right sometime stress induced hormonal imbalance can occur. But further work up needed in form of estimation of following;
_Serum LH
_Serum testosterone
_Serum prolactin
_Serum DHEAs
