Fsh (Definition)

Fsh is a peptide hormone synthesized in the anterior (forward) pituitary gland in both males and females. The name 'follicle stimulating hormone' refers to its role in females, namely to recruit and prepare an oocyte (egg) in the first half of the menstrual cycle leading up to ovulation. Fsh is often measured in blood to test a woman's ovarian ...Read more

I'm 35 & have been told my FSH & LH hormone levels are high & im going through menopause could there be other causes than the menopause?

High FSH and LH: Yes. Did you have surgical removal of ovaries? I would do a history on women in your family to get average of menopause. Are you taking any meds? ...Read more

I recently had my hormones levels checked . They are estradiol108pmol/L FSH 16.85IU/L and Lh 8.10UI/L are these values menopausal?I still have periods

No: You're likely still perimenopausal, which is why you still have periods. The average age of menopause is 51-52 years of age, but that means half are after that age. ...Read more

Fsh 6.1miu/ml, e2 63pg/ml, LH 3.2miu/l. Do i also need amh levels? Is a 20 late period two months in a row, first time in life, a signal for menopause?

Fsh 6.1miu/ml, e2 63pg/ml, LH 3.2miu/l. Do i also need amh levels? Is a 20 late period two months in a row, first time in life, a signal for menopause?

Goals? : An amh test can be done if you are considering in vitro fertilization otherwise it would have no value for you. Your fsh is low so this is not consistent with perimenopause. Irregular periods are one of the most common conditions obgyns treat. There are many options for cycle regulation. ...Read more

I have many symptoms /problems associated with menopause or thyroid these are bloods tests done, FSH 32.1, LH level 49.2, T4 15.1, TSH 1,56,?

I have many symptoms /problems associated with menopause or thyroid these are bloods tests done, FSH 32.1, LH level 49.2, T4 15.1, TSH 1,56,?

See gynecologist: Thyroid levels are within normal ranges. At menopause, FSH levels tend to go up to ~70 or more, but they fluctuate and normal values at one point in time won't give you your answers. You need to see your gynecologist for an evaluation. Any treatment for you will depend on his/her overall assessment, rather than a test taken at one point in time ...Read more

Menopause due to high FSH levels.  Fat, feeling blah, headachy, zero libido.  What can I do?

Talk to your doctor: You may try over-the-counter black cohosh and/or soy protein. These are natural sources of estrogen. After talking to your doctor, (s)he may test your testosterone level, and prescribe it if low. Some people may choose to take the newer types of prescription estrogen replacement for a period of time. Others might choose non-estrogen prescription meds that help to relieve hot flashes. ...Read more

What level of follicle-stimulating hormone (fsh) tells you that you are nearing menopause?

Depends: During ovulation, fsh rises with leutinizing hormone (lh). During the remainder of the menstrual cycle fsh is usually between 5-7. If the fsh level is above 15-20 not during the midcycle when ovulation occurs, and Estradiol levels are lower than they should be, there is dysfunction of the ovary which leads to menopausal symptoms. ...Read more

Fsh levels in menopause, peri menopauseI have a FSH level of 46. I have read that if the level is less than 50 this is perimenopause?

Menopause: Hi Kim, Menopause is defined as no menses for 1 year. Prior to this, bleeding may be irregular, heavy periods or light. You may have night sweats, mood swings, sleep disturbances. The average age of menopause is 52.4 years. 5 years on either side of this may represent a peri-menopausal state. Listen to your body and no matter the lab value, no period for a year is menopause. ...Read more

I am 45 and stopped using the pill in December after 30 years. No period since & FSH level 52 so my gyn says menopause. Recommends IUD & patch.

I am 45 and stopped using the pill in December after 30 years.  No period since & FSH level 52 so my gyn says menopause. Recommends IUD & patch.

Follow advice: It is not safe to have unprotected for at least one year after last period. If you have any menopausal symptoms the hormone patch may help. For 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. ...Read more

I am post menopausal my FSH level is 85, also had a transvaginal scan which showed pco and very small fibroids, keep having bad cramps I am 42?

Cramping postmenopau: If i understand correctly you are a 42-year-old woman in early menopause with cramping and with known fibroid tumors. This phenomenon is easily explained by the fact that these fibroids will undergo spontaneous degenerationbecause of the declining estrogen levels. I would start with an ultrasound to confirm that they are shrinking and that they are the source of the pain. ...Read more

Am I in peri-menopause?

No evidence: Hi. Those lab tests show no evidence of menopause, and perimenopause does not have laboratory diagnostic criteria. Based on statistics and lack of hormonal evidence, I would say perimenopause is very unlikely and menopause is not present. BTW, I am assuming your prolactin is expressed in SI units, you being from the civilized country to the north of us. ...Read more

Blood post menopausal test: estradiol <111; FSH 19-151; LH 14.2-52.3; progesterone <2.7 what does this indicate plse?

Menopause: The lab tests suggest that you may be perimenopausal. That means that your cycles may become more irregular, you may start or have hot flashes now, and the chances of getting pregnant with your own eggs is very low. It doesn't say when you will stop having periods or that you can't get pregnant, just a very low chance with your own eggs. Using an egg donor is an option if you want to get pregnant. ...Read more
