Please help me understand Hormone test results

Hi ladies. First, best wishes to you all! I'm 34 years old. My husband and I are TTC our 2nd baby. No luck for 6 months. I had hormone blood work testing on Day 2 of my period. Tested for FSH, Estradiol, Progesterone, Prolactin, and TSH. I need help understanding the implications of my results which I think indicate an imbalance. I do not have a doctor yet, I just had the test done and sent to me. I need to know what these #s mean, in terms of our odds for conceiving/treatments. Please respond if you have any info. Thanks. Results for FHS, Estradiol (E2) and progesterone are below.

FSH = 1.97
E2 = 174
Progesterone 1.27

I'm not sure about FSH or E2 although, I do know Dr's want progesterone levels to be above 10 to support a pregnancy.

Although, with that being said I think its better to test your levels on or around CD21. Assuming you have a 21 days cycle.

Don't quote me on this as I'm going by personal experience. I hope someone can come along that is more educated to help you

Good luck!

I think your hormones look great for day 2. Fsh- anything under 10 is good. The lower the better so yours is great. Estrogen looks good too. Progesterone for day 2 should be low. It shouldn't be above 10 until after ovulation. That should be checked at day 21. Good luck!

kris couldn't have said it any better. I do apologize for my lack of words. But in regards to the progesteron that's what I meant in regards to CD21 once again, I apologize
