Wife's 4th miscarriage, bloods results are back but I don't understand

My wife has just had her 4th miscarriage, on day 2 her FSH was 5.9 and LH was 2.3, I read it should be 1:1. We don't go back to see the consultant for 4 months should we be worried ?

Hi foxhillsteve and welcome to :FZ:
I am sorry about your losses.
Yes the perfect FSH:LH ratio should be as close to 1 as possible, but this is just a guide. Nobody is the perfect textbook average. Please don't use google as a doctor because it's not.

FSH and LH are not involved in miscarriage they are just a guide for the doctor to see the general health of her reproductive cycle. Also these numbers mean that your wife is very very far from POF.
To get full answers you will have to wait for the consultant to do all the tests for recurrent miscarriage. Unfortunately there is a lot of waiting involved in fertility.
Take care

Hi and welcome to FZ.

Sorry to hear of your losses. I just wondered, has your wife had the recurrent miscarriage blood tests? The results of these would be more significant in terms of what may be an underlying cause of miscarriage than FSH or LH results.
