Rosie - not really certain if you are in the right place.  Don't know what that test relates too and if it has anything to do with gynocological functions.

Alkaline phosphate comes into the blood as a waste product.  If levels are high it can be an indicator of a problem, but a low number is not indicative of anything. A common reason for an elevated one would be gall stones or a bile duct problem. My Aunt's was very high when she had a gall bladder attack. Don't worry about a low one. Marie
