Hello, I had a period in January that went on for 2 weeks, mainly spotting. Gp tested thyroid and FSH/LH levels and told me the levels said I had ovarian failure and post menopausal. I might get a few more periods and that HRT would be advised as I am 44. He asked to retest in two weeks
I missed a period straight after that and waited 6 weeks to have the blood tests redone along with routine Full Blood Count tests. I have just got them back and the GP notes say "normal ranges, no further action required".
The results in January were FSH 83.4 and LH 34.3 (out of range)
Last weeks results are FSH 5.7 and LH 11.2 (normal range)
I am pleased they are down and presume this means I am perimenopausal but not in menopause? I am not going to follow up with HRT discussion right now as I don't have hot flushes.
I am slightly worried that the period problem and missing one wasn't to do with menopause at all - and the LH isnt supposed to be higher than the FSH is it?
Anyone understand all this ?
