My FSH level

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi ladies, so I think I might be hitting meno sooner rather than later. I got my blood work back. My FSH is 171.2. No period this month and I have been having mad night sweats for the past month. My migraines have been awful. I wonder if my period in Jan was my last! I know it means nothing until I go one year without. But, my highest FSH was 35 in 2017!

I am only 41 1/2. I have to call my obgyn tomorrow. I have been very symptomatic, but not really being properly treated.

Any thoughts?

    Oh geez! It took two years for you to go from 35 to 171.2?!?! In November, my FSH was 3.9. I guess I have a LONG way to go. sigh

    two months after my periods stopped my FSH was 35 and the same a year later. no periods in between. 171 seems like an aberration. Do have it checked out. it could be some hormonal imbalance, overarian cyst or something.

    Mine was 107 last month. The one before was done in March and April of last year. The March was 17.9 . I don't have the April but I know I did one. My dr said once it can come down but once it rises it doesn't usually come down much. I am definately approaching. menopause. According to blood work im post menopause. I looked at all my bloodwork from 2017 until now and yes the fsh was rising though I saw dips in some but not much. My last period was Nov and it was heavy than usual, the Oct period was light. It may have been my last period ..if so I pray all these symptoms goes with it.

      Hi Mary! I just replied to your post...just keep tracking your symptoms. That will be the best indicator. I was horrible with fatigue. It has let up a little. But, now I am up all night sweating. So, I am tired all over again...but more sleepy tired than that full body shutdown. In 2017 my FSH went from 20-35...then 10. The lab values on my blood work goes up to around 130.

      I am going to the gyno in March. I figured I would give a little time in case a period comes.

      We have to keep gathering clues to navigate our way out of this tunnel!
