I may sound stupid but don't know who to ask on this.
I am 50 years old and when I was 48 my periods started going all over the place. Firstly I would be every couple of weeks and then now I can go 3 months .
Of course I thought menopause as I had night sweats although never any daytimes flushes. My gp tested my fsh and it was only 5. Apparently she said it needed to be over 20 for years to be perimenopause usually so it was ruled out.
I was sent for ovarian scans which said I had a dermoid cyst but only small. I was told they would rescan which they did a year later and still only small. I continued to get no periods only every two or 3 months. They redid my fsh which again was 5 or less so again they have said I am not anywhere near the menopause.
I have now gone almost 3 months without any period and my moods are swinging and although still not got any daytime hot flushes, I do have some night sweats. I have dry skin, my hair is changing texture and I have numerous other niggling symptoms.
Would anyone say I am approaching the menopause although my docs say not as my fsh is that of a very young person. Can you have a low fsh but be in the menopause.
