Menopause : Although I am unable to give an absolute answer without the range of the lab involved, these numbers suggest you are not in the menopause and therefore do not require hormone replacement. Furthermore, if you are asymptotic you do not require medication. The true issue is what is bothering you? Hope this helps. DrG
