Hormone levels - blood test results

I am  undergoing cycle monitoring now and do not know what to make of the results and am quite anxious and am only meeting with the doctor in 2 months. any input on what normal levels are would be appreciated! my levels on day 12 are as follows
LH 12 (was 6 on day 11)
Progesterone 11 (remained steady over the last 5 days)
Estrogen 983 - level has increased the last 5 days
1 dominant follicule at 19 (30 in total) - 1 follicule growing about 2mm per day
is this normal??

FYI - i am 36 and get regular periods, i also have an elevated prloactin of 44

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just went through almost a yr of cycle with monitoring, too, and finally got pregnant on my 8th medicated cycle! Your numbers sound good to me.

LH is the hormone that triggers ovulation. When you see it rising, that means your body is getting ready to ovulate soon. That would make sense if you have a mature follicle.

Progesterone - not sure what it means at the point in your cycle. Progesterone increases after ovulation. They only measured mine 7 days after ovulation, and wanted it to be above 10 for a non-medicated cycle and above 15 for a medicated cycle at that point.  

Estrogen - 983 is good if you have 1 mature follicle. I believe they like to see at least 500 per mature follicle. And follicle growing 2 mm a day is normal.

Not sure what the elevated prolactin means.
Best of luck to you!!
