Re: Test say I'm not in menopause....

Hi RW,

I was tested last year, and it didn't show menopause yet, but I had been having symptoms, that have gotten much worse over the past year. My doc says the test don't always show it until your well into menopause and I am definitly in peri -menopause with all my symptoms.
I'm getting re-tested again in August, it'll be a year from the last tests. By the way, I am hypothyroid also, which I don't think helps with this. I am on medication for it, but since the meds are a hormone - and not an actual drug, my levels fluctuate alot. It's not an exact science and hard to control sometimes. I get that tested twice a year and sometimes need adjustment on the meds.

Hope this helps,

Mary
