FSH Results

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello Everyone

I recently had full bloods done and one of the tests done was the FSH.

When i initally went back and got my results the Dr just said all my results were fine apart from the FSH which was high. I did not realise at the time there is a number attached to the reading. Anyhow i finally called in the Docs today and was told my FSH is 94.8 and according to the internet it means im post menopausal!  can anyone confirm if this is correct or not?

I do suffer with flushes and everytime i get one im filled with dread sad  i put it down to anxiety. i also have sleep issues and many other minor issues.

To me im suffering bad with meopause but tbh i know i really am lucky compared to most. I keep trying to tell myself that and im sure it helps along with all the vitamins i take.

I wish you all a lovely weekend

Mrs D xx

    Hi mrs d stay lucky with your symptoms yes the feeling if dread is normal before a hot flush I have dread feeling not quite right or as if I'm going to be sick. Then along comes the flush. Did you ask for a FSH  I've never had one maybe it's worth having it what else does it tell you ?

      Hi Liz

      the FSH blood test can be near always negative result of menopause  if women still have periods..

      as hormones are erractic up and down, spiking highs etc..

      my first one years ago came back normal and doc explained this and said i was in peri menopause ..

      years later ( i had a 9-10 year peri ) i had  another FSH test

      that said menopause state.. But not post menopause..

      some docs say FSH over 100 is post menopause .. ( on average ) 

      With one year no periods is post menopause ..

      accurate FSH tend only to show accurate results when periods decline to approx 2-3 a year approx..

      and after one year no periods

      hi MrsD

      i had my last period last sept 2013 

      like you thats when my anxiety kicked in and tears 

      just the same after my last period 

      the 150mg B6 took my anxiety away.. Worked well for me ..

      I still get tearful sometimes MrsD .. On occassion..and more sensitive some times 

      ours symptoms are so similar ..

      i don't feel sick either i only felt sick while still having peri periods and always a week before one and a blasting headache

      the last two periods were the worst for feeling sick and migraines like never before lasting days and nights

      I take the B6 & B12 now thanks for the advice.

      I suffer with what i believe is a frozen shoulder and achey joints but i just try to forget about them.

      I can cope with the issues i have i just pray they do not get any worse!

      FSH info... 

      FSH is secreted from the anterior pituitary gland. It functions in the regulation of the human reproductive system. The hormone is responsible for regulating the production of estrogen and progesterone within the ovaries. FSH, along with estrogen and inhibin (produced in the ovaries), are crucial for regulating a women’s menstrual cycle.

      Men require FSH for proper development of the gonads and sperm production. Other hormones that work in tandem with FSH in the reproductive system are luteinizing hormone (LH), human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

      The Purpose of the FSH Level Test

      An FSH level test uses human serum taken from a blood sample to measure the body’s level of FSH.

      In women, the most common reasons for an FSH level test include:

      assessing infertility problems 

      assessing irregular menstrual cycles  

      diagnosing disorders of the pituitary gland or diseases involving the ovaries

      hi MrsD

      yes me too, had aches and stiffness etc..

      still do on occasion ..

      again the B6 helped no end..

      your right there, dont dwell and try and carry on and just cope.

      have a smile and enjoy life ..

      the menopause just happens whether we like it or not

      we just find out own ways to make the symptoms easier.

      when we know thats why we feel the way we do ( menopause )  .. We seem to find that more reassuring and carry on 😏

      take care MrsD
