Subject: Followup regarding Progesterone
Dear Dr. Oliver,
after 10 days of taking the Progesterone, i failed to have any menses. you wanted me to let you know if this happened. we have already ruled out Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Currently I have no menopausal symptoms, but that could be perfectly normal i guess. no period since june 2007. guess i shouldn’t complain!

Your FSH of 27 would suggest that you are Postmenopausal and that is likely th reason you had no bleeding after the progesterone challenge. If the FSH is less than 15 that is normal Pre Menopausal; if it is over 25 that is clearly Post Menopausal; while 15-25 is transitional.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do,
guess nothing anyone can do… *sigh*
i think the part that really got me about this… i was 44 when everything just “stopped”. no symptoms, nothing. i got diabetes and went through menopause in the same month. boom. this is your life from now on. i just turned 45. midlife? i guess the part that is really driving me crazy is… WHAT THE HELL NEXT???
