I am 40 years old, recently married for the first time and have been ttc since January of this year. My fsh level is great....runs around the 4 mark. Every blood test and ultrasound has come back with no issues except that I DO have an elevated LH level...therefore my fertility doctor diagnosed me with having mild PCOS. Because of the 3:1 ratio of my FSH and my LH level. I was shocked becuase I have NOT ONE SINGLE other symptom of PCOS. Nothing. Get my period every month. However, certain months I do not ovulate....not every month...just certain months. That could also have to do with age.
Anyway...I just finished my second cycle of clomid and clomid is making me ovulate beautifullly however this last cylce my LH level was particularly higher......therefore my fertility doctor has put me on DEXAMETHASON plus the clomd for ths third cylce.
I am wondering if anyone has a similar problem then me and if Dexamethason helped them decrease their LH level?
PLEASE LET ME KNOW.....I AM DESPERTELY LOOKING FOR SOME INPUT
THANKS EVERY SO MUCH!!!
