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

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

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 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?

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,?

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
