Question
Posted by: Gail | 2004/11/20

How do I know when I am about to enter the peri-menopause?

I am 39 years old and curious to know about the blood test I can have to determine whether or not I am about to enter the menopause.

What is it called? How much does it cost?

Is it true that it can only be done on Day 3 of my period?

It is called FSH. If you are looking for a sign that your ovarian function is starting to decline, then it should be done on Day 3. The cost would be about R80.
