Estradiolo 32, 9 pg/ml fsh 14, 1iu/l testosterone < 0, 1 ng/ml beta hCG <2 mu/ml.Are these values normal for menopause?

Estradiolo 32, 9 pg/ml
fsh 14, 1iu/l
testosterone < 0, 1 ng/ml
beta hCG <2 mu/ml.Are these values normal for menopause?

Not necessarily.: It depends on your age and the situation. Your estrogen is low. Your fsh is not at high as i would expect in full menopause. You are not pregnant, and your testosterone is very low. The units reported vary, and I am at home. This could represent your pituitary not trying hard enough to stimulate your ovaries, or just early in your cycle. If your are 46, you may be perimenopausal. ...Read more

Seems ok: Is DPO days post ovulation? If so, your HCG roughly doubled in 48 hours...That is a good textbook rise! a mild cramp is common, and no bleeding is always good. Seems to me you are pregnant! no indication of ectopic, no reason to think cancer (hcg producing cancers are typically seen in much younger women ie teens and 20's) and menopause doesn't give you rising hcg. So for now, congrats and luck! ...Read more

Two thoughts: Sometimes it's possible to skip a period completely- those hormones like to mess with us sometimes without being pregnant. This is not completely out of the ordinary. Sometimes there can be a pregnancy, since you are having symptoms, you could ask your doctor to draw a quantitative HCG on you to make absolutely sure you're not pregnant too. Just a thought Good luck! ...Read more

How does the hCG diet work? 

How does the hCG diet work? 

Not very well.: The weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testicles, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read more
