What says the preliminary IF test which includes Thyroid, FSH, LH and Prolactin ?

Hi Doctor , I went for preliminary IF test which includes Thyroid, FSH, LH and Prolactin , as I was not aware that I have to take test only after 2nd day of menstrual cycle , I went on 29th day(ie, after 1st day of missed period). The levels are as follows. FSH - 3.38 mIU/mL LH - 2.62 mIU/mL Prolactin - 26.12 ng/ml Please let me know all hormones are normal? As I missed my periods, is there any symptom of pregnancy?

hi welcome to HCM.For menstruating women, the normal FSH levels during the follicular or luteal phase should range between 5 and 20 IU/L. Right before ovulation during the mid-cycle peak, FSH levels should be between 30 and 50 IU/L.
LH-typical levels are between 1-20 IU/Lwomen,
prolactin- follicular phase 12.1(micrograms/L)
, luteal phase 13.9,
mid-cycle 17
whole cycle 13
pregnant, 1st trimester 16
TO confirm pregnancy you have to go for pregnancy test ok.consult your gynec for assisstance.

welcome to healthcare magic
it is difficult to interpret pregancy or no pregnancy based on LH FSH. the reference values depend on phases on menstrual cycles, so you could be in the luteal phase or if cycles expected in a day may be menstrual phase. broadly you are in the normal range. but these hormones will not tell you about pregnancy.
incase you think you could be pregnat take a simple urine pregnancy test kit and clear your doubts. not all females will have early symptoms.
hope this is helpful.
