FSH levels

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello ladies,

I had a blood test 4 days after start of my period to measure the FSH levels. At 15 mIU/ml he levels seem to be kind of high for that time of the cycle. Any thoughts on this? Would this be a sign of perimenopause. I am 49.

      Hi Shelly,

      Thanks for the reply. Well, I haven't seen my doc yet, this results just came in on my patinet portal today. I know that I perimenopausal as I do have all the signs and even skipped a period in December. This test is really done becasue I have a fibroid and I have some decision makings to do regarding its removal. My primary thinks I am close enough to menopause that the fibriod might shrink and so no need to worry about it now. I am actually happy I am getting there. At least something good might come out of this. Lets see!

      HI Naz,

      I was diagnosed with fibroids when I was 35. I never did anything about it. Now that I have gone through menopause, they shrunk. The sonohystogram did not even show any. My doctor was right on that one. Told me they will shrink as I get older.

      Hi Debbie,

      That's great to know and thanks so much for replying to me. I think I will also wait. My fibriod is at 10 am, so it's quite big but I still think I want to wait until at least my next Ultrasound in July. If there is not changes in size then I will definetly wait longer.
