Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 30-year-old female. Recently, I started planning for my first child. I have a premature diminished ovarian reserve. I always had a normal period. But recently I missed two periods in a row and so I started progesterone challenge. I started to have light spotting after two days of finishing Provera followed by light periods after two weeks of finishing Provera Progesterone challenge. Then I do not have spotting or bleeding. So I did some blood tests. I have an FSH of 12.1 mIU/mL and estradiol of 330 pg/mL.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and estradiol levels are very high. It would be important if you can share AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) levels and your latest transvaginal ultrasound report. Kindly mention your height and weight. In case of premature ovarian failure, there is nothing to be done. If your AMH is low, then a DHEAS (dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate) trial can be given with oral contraceptive pills and followed by ovulation induction, egg retrieval, and IVF (in vitro-fertilization) procedure. Kindly share your reports for review first.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
