    I've had my CD3 blood tests taken, and called the surgery for my results. The receptionist says they have been checked by the doctor and are all ok, i was just hoping one one you more experienced ladies might be able to expalin them in English!

    FSH levels Pre 2.5 Peri??35
    LH pre1-10 Mid cycle 20-50

    Are these levels really ok? and is the 'Peri' figure some sort of predicted future level??

    Thanks in advance.x

    Sorry, can't be of much help. All I know is my FSH level was 7. It should be under 10. If yours 2.5 that is excellent! the lower the better. Peri refers to the state just before menopause I don't think that is specific to you.

    Don't know about LH levels results. Hopefully someone else can help.

    Looking good so far.:happydance:

    Hi misskitty,
    I cant explain what they mean, but I had my cd3 blood test a couple off weeks ago and the doctor didnt explain it like that to me. I was just told my results were normal, I have to have another blood test on cd22 which checks if im ov (I think).
    Do you have to go for anymore blood tests then?

    Can I just say that if you're in any doubt then go back to your GP, reason being I had CD21 tests done last year (Sep I think) which the recpetionist told me were "fine" (she said a nurse had checked them), when I went back to my GP earlier this month as still no BFP she said they were actually only borderline.....meaning I could have started Clomid about 6 months back.

    So unless anyone can say for 100% definite, I would go back to your GP and check!

    Hi Obe

    Yeah i've got to go for 21 day bloods. I was told me results were fine and normal, but because i'm super-nosey and like to understand everything i asked the receptionist for the levels so i could look it up. My Dr's gonna give me a call in the morning to explain what it all means!
