Read all Questions & Answers

I have been suffering from poor sleep and anxiety for 3 months. I am 55 and still having regular periods. I had FSH test done just before I started my period which showed normal. Could I still be peri menopausal? My gut feeling is my anxiety is hormone related. How can I find out for sure?

The average age of the menopause is 45-55 so it is likely that your hormonal balance is changing even though your periods are still regular..

Unfortunately, blood tests are not always accurate and do depend on the level of hormones at that particular time.

I would suggest going again soon and asking for another test.

In the meantime you may find a magnesium supplement helpful for the poor sleep and anxiety.
