Symptoms of menopause include: missed periods, hot flashes, night sweats, sleeping problems, changes in mood and weight gain. If you are having menopausal symptoms, your doctor may order blood tests to help determine what exactly is going on and to rule out any other issues. Two of the most commonly ordered blood tests are FSH-Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Estradiol (E2).
FSH is considered the key test to determine whether or not you are in menopause. FSH levels rise when your ovaries stop producing enough estrogen. High FSH levels are indicative that your body is entering menopause. When your ovaries stop working, your Estradiol levels drop. Low Estradiol levels can also be caused by excessive exercise, low body fat and diminished ovarian reserve.
Symptoms of male menopause may include: fatigue, weakness, depression, and sexual problems, to name a few. The only way to detect male menopause (low testosterone) is through a blood test.
