accuracy of FSH test?
Was at my dr. a couple of wks. ago and the number for FSH bloodtest was 58. She told me that meant I was in menopause, but to use birth control for a yr. I had not had a period in 6 mos. After much discussion, I agreed to try HRT. Ordered from my mail-order pharmacy service. The DAY I received them, I started a period!!! I have tried calling my dr. to ask questions. They promised she would call before noon yesterday. Stayed within earshot of the phone all day. You guessed it... no call. Now I have to be a pest and go through the whole story with the nurse again.
In the meantime, does anyone know the accuracy of this bloodtest? I researched on webmd and it says 'over 50' means a woman is past menopause. Is it a mistake to start HRT too early?
