Re: How do I get tested for hormone levels?
It's going to take a straight face with your OBGYN to tell him your symptoms and be firm about needing a blood test to check your FSH levels. He's very unprofessional for laughing about the matter (perhaps he has no knowledge about the subject of bioidenticals). Before you go back into his office, get informed by reading Dr. Northrup's "Wisdom of Menopause". Once your results come in, have your doctor explain all of your hormone levels, make sure you have written down the NORMAL range of levels a woman your age should be at, get a copy of your results and ask him for the bioidentical hormones. If he refuses, he's probably a doctor that does not practice them. Do a search on which doctors in your area practice bioidentical hormones.
