Fertility Numbers - what do they mean???

January 15, 2015

I am regularly asked what all the numbers mean that women get when they are cycling at a fertility clinic.  Below is the basics of what we are looking for:

 

FSH - Follicle Stimulating Hormone, we want this to be under 10 IU/L on day 3 of your cycle.

 

AMH - Anti-Mullerian Hormone, ideally we would like it to be over 16 pmol/L, but preferably closer to 30.

 

Estrogen - on day 3 of your cycle, we want it to be below 200 pmol/L, but then by ovulation we would like about 1000/mature follicle.

 

Progesterone - most notably tested 7 days post ovulation, we would like it over 30 nmol/L.

 

Follicle Size - at ovulation we would like to see your mature follicle to be about 2.0cm.

 

Antral Follicle Count - observed on day 3 of your cycle by ultrasound, ideally we would like to see somewhere around 10 tiny follicles on each ovary.

 

LH - Luteinizing Hormone, will be low at the start of your cycle and then spike mid-cycle to trigger ovulation.

 

Prolactin - a hormone produced by the brain which can inhibit ovulation, we want to see this below 20 ng/mL.

 

TSH - Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, we would like to see this below 2.0 uIU/mL in women trying to conceive.
