See gynecologist: 37 is a little too early for menopause, it would be prudent to consult a gynecologist as this is not a do it yourself matter. Two other things: 1. Use contraception for one year after your last period. 2. Take iron and multivitamin supplement to prevent anemia from excessive menstrual blood loss. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

No: Lab tests are just that. A diagnosis is made by a doctor after consideration of symptoms, labs , imaging etc. Wait to discuss it with your doctor.
