Menopause

FSH reference ranges

08/25/2009

Question:

I can`t find any info on what is is considered menopausal for an FSH range...Mine just came back 81.9. What would be normal for a nonmenopausal woman, say, in her 20s?

Answer:

FSH levels vary greatly, depending on age and timing during the cycle. For a woman in her 20's, most normal levels would be less than 20.
