Welcome to ehealthforum,
It depends on which menstrual phase the tests were done. If the tests were done in ovulatory phase, then the LH values are within normal limits. Absent periods (for a long gap) could be due to various underlying causes. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for thorough examination and investigations (vaginal smear test, complete hormonal and blood work-up, ultrasound scan) to look for the underlying cause (especially to rule out early perimenopausal onset, PCOD etc). Early onset of menopause is a possibility based on the FSH values. Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you based on examination and investigation results to help you get back your periods. Discuss your pregnancy plans with your treating gynecologist and do not delay your pregnancy plans as advanced maternal age itself can cause complications.
Take care.
