LH 1.3m   Folicular 1.9-12.5 Mid cycle 8.7- 76.3 luteal 0.5-16.9
FSH 4.3   Follicular 2.5-10.2 Mid cycle 3.1-17.7 Luteal 1.5- 9.1
From what I understand from reading this is my FSH is normal but my LH is low. Does anyone know what would cause low LH I had a pituitary tumor remover over a month ago. Any info would be appreciated.

Do you know where you are in your period?

They are both pituitary hormones (you know that)... did you get your pathology from the surgery? The surgery could have impacted the hormone producing area of your pit and it can be temporary or permanent. Mine varies but my LH and FSH dropped down after years.

I haven't had my period in over a year thats why I started seeing doctors to find out what was causing it. Then I got sick had pituitary surgery over a month ago and still no period. So my LH being low could that make me not have my period?

I would think that yes, with that low of levels, your period is still not going to happen. So they are either going to wait  a bit as one month or so post op, you are still in hormonal recovery time period and once that *time* is up per your doc, and other hormones like thyroids etc are ok, then you may have to induce one with pills.

I am not good with those hormones - sorry... mine were super messed up and I never had a normal period or level ever. LOL.
