Yes, 3.3 is within the normal range of 0.4-4.5. I guess your RE wants you more on the high side than the low side of the normal range. Do your Endos agree on the normal range being 0.4-4.5? Or does your RE use a different lab and is not taking into consideration the difference? Just something I personally would like to know if it was me.
I hope your RE is comfortable with proceeding but if not don't feel discouraged. I'm thinking that it will be less stressful and you will have a greater success rate when the #s are where the RE needs them to be. I know how frustrating it can get. I used to get so sad when I was told “not this cycle … we'll try again next cycle”. Hang in there though. I'm glad you are seeing your general Dr. and getting some of your questions answered. If you have to wait 6 more weeks, use the time to relax a little bit so that you are good and ready for next cycle.
Wishing you all the best,
