Need some info

I'm 40 yrs old and for the first time in my life (other than 2 pregnancies) have missed my period. I went to the dr last week to confirm I'm not pregnant and she also ran tests.

Results are
LH - 53.8
FSH - 26.0
Prolactin - 13.7
Estradiol - 111.7

I've still in total discomfort as breasts are really "swollen" and I am extremely bloated. No other signs of pms like cravings etc. The doc said I'm too young for menopause and if I'm in early menopause there is an underlying condition. She also said if I don't start my period in 4 weeks she's going to give me medicine to start.

I'm new to the menopause thing although I think I've been in peri for the past couple of years. If skipping is normal than that's fine but just a little concerned on how she's going to make me have a perioed plus she's not really giving me any info on what's going on. I like to know!!

Early menopause or do I need to investigate furthur to see if something else is going on? And what else could it be?

thank you in advance

Re: Need some info

Menopause would be a 34 or 35 on your FSH so you are closing in on it but not there. It's just peri I would think. When in your cycle was the test done? That also matters.

At any rate, you might feel better if you went on and had a period. And you could always go on birth control pills to level things out.
