Dear Sassy

The low LH is actually a good parameter to have on day 2 of the cycle. Of greater importance however is to have the FSH level, which would indicate indirectly, the ovarian reserves at present. In PCO patients, one would expect a high LH to FSH ratio, although this is not always the case.
Therefore I would be interested in seeing the FSH level as well as the Lh level on day 2 to be able to be of more assitance to you. If the FSH level exceeds 8 than this would indicate some degree of ovarian reistance and certainly, should the FSh level be above 15, than I would be concerned regarding the response I would expect from ovarion stimulation (ovulation induction).
