Re: Fsh levels - menopause

Either way, it indicates you are menopausal. Anything over 34 is considered menopausal - at least that's the threshold my gyno uses.

Re: Fsh levels - menopause

Yes, 48 is a high level for FSH. You are definitely in full blown peri or close to menopause. Although all labs have different values, my lab says anything over 25 is peri and anything over 50 is menopause.

Hope your symptoms are not to severe.

Take care,
