Our expert says:
Day-2 or day-3 FSH of 9 usually indicates a poor ovarian reserve. However having a poor ovarian reserve with regular cycles does not necessarily mean that you wouldn’t be able to conceive naturally. It is just one of the tests that one uses to predict ovarian reserve and stimulation outcome. A day-21 progesterone test will in fact tell you if you are ovulating or not. There are other tests available to check for ovarian reserve and they are a pelvic ultrasound to assess the ovaries for antral follicles and these antral follicles are then counted and if they reach a significant number per ovary will also be predictive of ovarian reserve. There is another test called AMH (anti-mullerian hormone), which is also a very good predictor of ovarian reserve. The actual cost of this, I am unable to tell you but you should be able to obtain that from a laboratory. despite your blood test showing clear the fact that you have PCOS is usually the cause of excessive hair growth.
