Recent "diagnosed" with menopause still having periods??
I am 48 and a few months ago my gyn had me stop taking my bc for a month in order to test for menopause. Stopped it, went in for blood test (was having a period) and my fsh came in at 39. nurse called to tell me I was in menopause and shouldn't have any more periods. Since then I have had 2 normal, timely periods (heavier since being off the pill). When I phoned back to tell her, she sched an appt with my doc to discuss. He now wants to do an endometrial biopsy/d&c to check for cancer (!) since I have fibroids right at my cervix, I have to have this done in the OR (too painful if not).
I'm really not down with this. I do not want to have surgery if not needed. I have NO menopause symptoms (hot flashes, headaches, sweating, etc) at all so I'm really not sure what's going on, should I request another blood test before considering this surgery? Does any of this sound right to anyone?
