    ok..i've been studying for about 8 hours straight so my eyes may be a little off.. However, if one is to look at the 2004 edition of First Aid it seems as though the diagram indicates that LH>FSH in the proliferative phase.

    However, I'm fairly certain after having read my class notes that the FSH>LH during the early follicular, then FSH=LH right around mid follicular, the late follicular the LH>FSH and it stays that way for the rest of the time til the new cycle ???

    just thought i'd share...

    Yeah, after looking that over, it appears their graph is screwed up. You have the right idea, and honestly, the FSH/LH ratio is pretty close to 1:1 the whole way through (except for mid-cycle), but FSH > LH in proliferative and FSH < LH in secretory. FA has it reversed in the graph.
