Fsh (menopause test)

Postby soskinny » Wed Sep 24, 2014 8:39 am

Hi all. Anyone else do a home menopause urine test and get a positive? I've done 2 different brands both positive. I'm only 33 so concerned

I have never done a home test, I was going to until my nurse practitioner set me up with a midwife who ordered a FSH.

Hope someone on here can help you.

I didn't even know home FSH tests existed!

I did get my FSH level tested many times (requirements of going through any fertility treatments where I live), and my FSH jumped 4 points over a couple year span, and my final FSH was 12... super sucky considering my age.

My doc said FSH can be an unreliable indicator for some women, and told me that AMH was much more indicative... I got my AMH tested and it was totally in the typical range.

I would ask your doc about both these tests... and if your FSH comes back high, I think it would be worth it to look into your AMH. We had to pay 250$ for this test, but I'm glad I did... it totally put my mind at ease.
Me: 33 Yrs. Cervical cancer SURVIVOR! Treated w/radical trachelectomy, lymphadenectomy & circlage. Sucky FSH (12) & AMH w/in the normal/low range
DH: 38 Yrs. SA came back low-ish
Official Dx: Unexplained

Five unmedicated IUI's - All Neg.
