A period after Menopause ?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi my recent blood test for the Menopause is

Serum LH 22.4

and FSH 103 

I have learned more about the FSH total.

If the number from the blood test is between

“1-25” you are normal , not menopausal

from  “25 – 138” you are on your way to going through the menopause

where ever the number is, the Dr can tell what stage you are at.

I am 103, Dr said I am way off the scale and have gone through the menopause , even though I am only 46 . my family have a history of early menopause.

So why I have I got a period today ?  is this normal  ? not had one for 2 years , I even have symptoms in my body, I feel a bit swollen.

just wondered if anyone new….

    Hi Rachel

    It could be all sorts of things, most of them are just hormonal and absolutely nothing to worry about. You MUST tell your doctor about the bleed though and get it checked out just in case. xx

    My Dr. won't do blood test she just says I am in menopause. You need to get checked out by Dr. I was bleeding and found out I have thicking around my uterus. I am going through hell this is very hard. Good lulolck

      Thanks Linda. I changed Dr.. I did 11months with out a period then got one. Because it wasn't 12month she wouldn't do a blood test. This year I went 11months again without.. Different Dr he did the test and got the high readings

      Now nothing from April to today so I have only gone 5months free now. It's weird and random.

      Hope you feel better soon x

      Hi Linda, my MacMillan nurse told me that thickening could be due to lots of different things and not necessarily bad.  So try not to worry too much.  I know it's hard though; sometimes it just hits you and it's hard not to panic. xx
