I have always had a normal periods but recently missed 2 periods in a row and hence started progesterone challenge. Progesterone challenge month 1 : Light spotting after 2 days of finishing Provera followed by light periods after 2 weeks of finishing Provera Progesterone challenge month 2 : No spotting or bleeding Did some lab work and observed the below ( all these tests were done on day 60 since I did not get periods) Fsh : 12.1 Estradiol : 330 AMH :

Hello

Your FSH and estradiol levels are very high . It would be important if you can share the AMH levels and also your latest transvaginal ultrasound report. Also mention your height and weight.

If you are case of premature ovarian failure , confirmed, then there is nothing which can be done , however if AMH is low , then a DHEAS trial can be offered with oc pills and then ovulation induction followed by egg retrieval and then IVF procedure. But please share all your reports for a review first. Regards
