Can menopause be predicted by low hormone levels?

Can menopause be predicted by low hormone levels?

Yes and no: Menopause will happen. The diagnosis is made when Estradiol levels are below 40 and follicle stimulating hormone levels are above 40. However, most women have ovarian dysfunction starting around age 35 which leads to low levels and imbalances of estrogen and progesterone. Symptoms may be present for 15-20 years prior to the onset of ovarian failure (i.e. Menopause). ...Read more

I have been real moody, impatient with people, having hot flashes and I don't get enough sleep and my sex drive is very high iam wanting to know if iam going through menopause or depression or maybe even stress

Hormones: The mood symptoms that occur with perimenopause can be similar to depression. In perimenopause there are usually physical symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness and/or period irregularities. Sometimes a blood test of female hormone levels can be helpful. It would be best to be evaluated by a doctor to determine the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

I have been on my period for two months strait. I'm usually very regular. I'm 50, so am I going through menopause? I also check my blood pressure, and it is high. I wasn't sure if the bleeding was related to menopause or high blood pressure.

I have been on my period for two months strait. I'm usually very regular. I'm 50, so am I going through menopause? I also check my blood pressure, and it is high. I wasn't sure if the bleeding was related to menopause or high blood pressure.

High: High blood pressure does not affect your periods.

Your abnormal bleeding could be due to hormonal changes as you get closer to menopause, but I recommend seeing an ob/gyn to make sure there is nothing to worry about.

As well as an examination, possible tests include hormonal blood tests to check if you are heading into menopause, a pap smear if you haven't had one in the last year, and an ultrasound scan to check for fibroids and to measure the lining of your uterus - if it's thickened you may have a polyp (a growth inside your uterus), or you may need an endometrial biopsy to check for precancerous changes in the lining of the uterus. Fibroids and polyps are both very common. Best wishes. ...Read more
