I’m researching test results & hormone levels, but some sources use different measurement units. How do I convert them?

Posted by & filed under Tests, The Basics.

When you’re researching your own fertility, you may come across numbers and data you’ve gleaned from the web, or from your own personal results. It can be helpful to empower yourself with information, but with one important warning: pay attention to the units!

Some common values such as AMH, estrogen and progesterone can be measured and reported in completely different units. The units used can depend on the study you’re reading, or whether an American or Canadian institution processed your test.

So make sure to inspect the unit that comes after the number (for example: pg/ML? ng/ML? pmol/L?), and convert numbers into the same unit system when you’re trying to draw comparisons. We find that¬†EndMemo¬†provides a very clean interface for your medical needs.
