Am I menopausal?
i am 57 yrs. old -no periods for about 3 yrs. now. had depo-provera injections once a week for a month in 1999 for heavy bleeding. it worked. i have a very low estradiol level but my fsh is 10.8, therefore i am told that there are still things going on. am i menopausal and are there chances for pregnancy? when will i know if i am menopausal?
Your situation does not sound clear cut. It might be advisable to check several of your pituitary hormones as well as your thyroid levels.
