In brief: Low estrogen ?

Estrogen production from ovaries can continue well beyond the cessation of menstrual periods.
A serum test for "FSH" can determine if a woman is menopausal. Progesteron by itself will not alleviate the effects of low estrogen, however. See your healthcare professional for lab tests and advice, since more information is required to answer your question completely.
