Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredThere are certain blood tests that can confirm or deny your menopausal status. Blood levels of certain hormones can give you a good idea if you are perimenopausal or postmenopausal or pregnant (it happens). Typically there’s a team of hormones that you need to examine including estrogen (estradiol), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), progesterone, testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH) and sometimes thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH and T4), because thyroid disease can throw off your cycle, too. If you are menopausal, your estrogen levels will be baritone-bass loooow and your FSH levels will be soprano hiiiiigh.

Your doctor can check your hormone levels with a simple blood test. This test will let you know if you are in menopause. This blood test will check hormone levels of both estrogen and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). When you enter menopause, your estrogen levels begin to decline and your FSH levels increase.
