and they said they like it to be below 65. Yours is slightly higher than that, and yr RE might want to start yr IUIs on day 2 rather than day 3. My IUI was a day 2 start with estradiol level of 83. They worry about high estradiol because it can be suppressing a high FSH level.

What is perhaps more important than these #s is to see how you respond to stims, especially if you are considering IVF. Your levels don't sound really high, and I don't know yr age and other factors, but I would pursue injectible/IUIs rather than trying too long to get pg on yr own.

Very best of luck


: these are my 3rd day blood results:

: estradiol 77

: prolactin 13

: FSH 7.3

: TSH 1.2

: Is the estradiol too high over the normal range? Would this level effect natural conception? Would it effect the outcome of IVF? Is this an issue I should concern myself with? Are there any other tests I should follow up with. Thank you very much.
