I have just received the results of two blood tests about ten days apart where my FSH and LH hormone levels have been shown to be high. My last blood test showed an FSH of 83 and an LH of 30. My estradiol levels and Prolactin are normal. Any idea what this means? I have been on the pill for 17 years with a few short breaks and came off it in April this year. I had three normal periods after this and then took the morning after pill. After this I have skipped 4 periods. I know that to skip one is normal but I have taken it before and have never missed more than one period. Can anyone suggest what may be the problem? I am thinking maybe PCOS or early menopause could be it but I think my estradiol levels would be low if it was early menopause and my LH FSH ratio does not seem to fit the PCOS symptoms either.
