In 2013, June my FSH-108, Prolactin-21.36, whereas my Abdominal Sonography was positive.

Eventhough , I am using Northesterone every month from June 2013 to May 2014.
I stopped the same tablets in June 2014.
whereas in July 2014 i.e in this month I had not faced menstrual cycle.

One Doctor says this is DOR, another one one says this is PCOD.

I am an unmarried aged 35 years ,kindly give proper suggestions and medical guide lines.
Thanking you.

Hi Anonymous,

You should schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Pregnancy and perimenopause are not the reason for missed and irregular periods.

Hello Anonymous,

I will try to provide you with information that may be helpful in conversations with your physician.

Normal FSH or Follicle-stimulating hormone levels in women are:
Before puberty: 0 - 4.0 mIU/ml
During puberty: 0.3 - 10.0 mIU/ml
Women who are still menstruating: 4.7 - 21.5 mIU/ml
After menopause: 25.8 - 134.8 mIU/ml
mIU/ml = milli international units per milliliter
Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories

FSH helps manage a women’s cycle and stimulates the ovaries to produce eggs. The test is used to help diagnose or evaluate:

Women who have polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian cysts
Abnormal vaginal or menstrual bleeding
Problems becoming pregnant, or infertility

A prolactin test measures the level of the hormone prolactin, which is made by the pituitary gland, in your blood. Prolactin levels are different throughout the day. The highest levels occur during sleep and shortly after you wake up.

Normal prolactin levels for non-pregnant women is 4–23 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL) or 4–23 micrograms per liter (mcg/L)

Premature ovarian failure can cause high FSH levels in young women.
Further diagnostic testing may be necessary to make a diagnosis.

i hope this helps,
