Is it possible to be starting menopause and all of the hormonal lab work turn out negative?

My mom is 49 years old and has been having sudden anxiety/depression. She describes what sounds to be like a hot flash combined with sudden anxiety and panic. She went to the MD and was tested for elevated estrogen/progesterone/luteinizing hormone, but all were within normal limits. IS it possible to be starting menopause without having elevated hormones?

Yes that is precisely what happened to me – my results looked fine. The blood tests give normal results based on the average person. However each individual has different hormonal requirements. My specialist put me on a very small dose of estradiol, progesterone and testosterone and my symptoms vanished.

I had a blood test done on progesterone(was 10) and estradiol (was 74) What does this mean-what is the norm at 35?

I’ve started having sleepless night, hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, anixety, crying, memory lost. That is why I had the test done to see if I have started early stages of menopause.


Estradiol (E2) is produced in women mainly in the ovary. In men, the testes and adrenal glands are the principal source of estradiol. In women, normal levels of estradiol provide for proper ovulation, conception, and pregnancy, in addition to promoting healthy bone structure and regulating cholesterol levels. Normal Result Limits: This test result has no single level of normal results.

Your lab report should include a range of numbers that identifies what is expected for you based on your age, sex, and the method used in that laboratory. Since progesterone levels vary predictably throughout the menstrual cycle, multiple (serial) measurements can be used to help recognize and manage some causes of infertility. Progesterone can be measured to determine whether or not a woman has ovulated, to determine when ovulation occurred, and to monitor the success of induced ovulation.

Normal Result Limits: This test result has no single level of normal results. Your lab report should include a range of numbers that identifies what is expected for you based on your age, sex, and the method used in that laboratory. Without knowing why you are having these tests done its hard to really give you a correct answer to your question.
