      It is suggested that you visit our lab checker. Put the test values in the search box one by one to see which one is not normal. Also access the probable conditions that may lead to that particular abnormal value.

      Your FSH and LH values appear to be alright. It’s difficult to comment on the other three values. It would depend upon the phase of your menstrual cycle, when that reading was taken. That is, the hormonal levels are different and keep changing throughout the menstrual cycle.

      Let us know your symptoms, for a better insight into your problem.
