This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

how old are you?

your ovaries have to produce more estrogen for your pituitary gland to make less FSH hormone.

have you had your estrogen or estradiol levels checked?

where are you

I am on the east coast

how old are you?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Why you don't answer my question

you didn't answer my question of how old are you

your estrogen levels are low and your FSH is high

this is from ovarian dysfunction when your ovaries don't make enough estrogen.

this can happen with menopause

that is why I asked you your age.

I'm 33

Where are you doc

normal estrogen levels for Premenopausal: 17-200 pg/mL

your levels are in this range.

FSH levels can go up and down during the menstral cycle.

so when you get your FSH levels checked will determine your FSH levels

I just check 2 weeks ago and the results was fsh 18.6
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
I'm planning to get married and have kids that is why I want to get help to lower fsh level

normal FSH for Women who are still menstruating: 4.7 to 21.5 mIU/ml

your FSH is normal range.

your levels will be fine and you will be able to have children with these levels.

My sister is 47 and had baby girl about year a go

that is good.

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
How about my steradoil leave, I drink lots of coffee and Indian tea

you should cut down on your coffee and tea and caffeine and slowly cut down on that.

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
What can effect my fsh to be elevated
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
I don't exercise, my work is stressful
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
What else I should do to improve or lower fsh and increase estrogen or steradoil whatever that is

your FSH levels normally go up and down before and after during your menstral period.

FSH spikes up during your ovulation.

this is all regulated by your pituitary system and is working normally for you.

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
But to be safe side , to improve what should I do

there is nothing you can do to affect your FSH and estrogen levels.

your body's pituitary and ovaries regulate these hormone levels for you

and you could have good fertility at this point.

Do stress effect or make pituitary gland
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Do stress effect or make pituitary gland imbalance
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Therefore effect all hormones

stress can cause some small changes of your adrenal cortisol levels

stress can also cause skipping of your periods

but it will not cause permanent effect or damage to your FSH and estradiol levels.
