    it is one indication of PCOS.
  10. Estradiol Day 3
    • 25-75 pg/ml
    • lower levels better for stimulating
  11. Abnormally high levels on day 3 may indicate?
    a functional cyst or diminished ovarian reserve

    100+ pg/ml or 2x Day 3
  13. doubling in E2 from the level taken on?
    cycle day 3
  14. Estradiol level Surge/hCG day?
    • 200 + pg/ml
    • levels should be 200-600 per mature (18 mm) follicle
    • levels are sometimes lower in overweight women.
  15. LH level Day 3?
    < 7 mIU/ml
  16. A normal LH level is similar to FSH?
    LH higher than FSH is indication of PCOS

    > 20 mIU/ml
  18. LH surge leads to ovulation within?
    48 hours
  19. Prolactin level Day 3
    < 24 ng/ml
  20. Increased prolactin levels can interfere with?

    1.4-4.4 pg/ml
  33. diseased thyroid gland will start producing high levels of T3 but still produce normal levels of T4?
    so measurement of both hormones provides a more accurate evaluation of thyroid function.
  34. Free Thyroxine T4 level on Day 3?
    .8-2 ng/dl
