kyra, I'm so glad that you brought that question up. I've been wondering about this myself. My docs, to include my GYN keep telling me there is no such lab test for this. When I know there has to be. I know there is the TSH or what is also called the Thyroid levels. They also can run a free T3 an T4 which is more accurate. I wanted an actual hormone level! So, katidid thanks for responding. I will bring that up. I had to have a TVH at 27 and have NEVER had mine checked to date and have asked on numerous occasions. I'm now 36...almost 37.
I'm wondering if this is not the reason for which I have so many arthritic problems and such. Basically a womans body starts to shut down and age after a Hysterectomy. I was put into surgical menopause about 23 or so years early. Wonder why the docs told me there is no such test. ...or told me they didn't know what it was called. If they didn't then they should have looked it up. After all, that's what they get paid the big bucks for , right???
