Oh boy Maxie this is such a hard one as still battling this myself. Did your endo do an FSH test? as from 30-50 means menopause but shorter or longer cycles signal peri-menopause and this can occur for years before actual menopause which I never knew. I was one of the lucky ones who just had 28 day cyles and lasted 5 days. But all of a sudden for me first in early 40's night sweats once in a while which went away and only returned late 40's and cycles closer together and shorter. Some have the opposite heavy but each woman is different. High testosterone should mean more hair in females. As was told if my bioidenticals testosterone too high I'd get facial hair. Most females entering or even 30's today estrogen starts to drop. I had to find an antiaging doc who tested estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Now the ideal situation to start them before or at the beginning of menopause to avoid thinning of bones and all the lovely things that go along with menopause. And you might remember this is when all my problems started thyroid went, and the anxiety was totally out of control. So should you ask you endo yes but seems mainstream endos don't pay much attention. I recently asked my bioidentical anti aging doctor as was an ob gyn if saliva testing was better than blood. He said that he tried saliva and didn't get good results that for him blood was better. Maxie I don't know what to think of antiaging but watching my neighbor who was entering menopause whos own ob gyn did hormone testing respond to bioidenticals was amazing. As she started at the beginning uses the spray for estrogen evimist and promethium for progesterone which is a pill to take at night and testosterone cream. Well she was able to go off ad's and cut drastically down on xanax which she's been on for years and she seems like a new woman. Might google Stanleys compounding RX in Charlotte NC as they have a good description of the bioidenticals and babble me with other stuff. The original studies were done on the synthetic hormones which is basically horse pee. And that's where hormones got a bad rap with all sorts of side effects. Now they the bios are being reevaluated. I was told that hyster sisters is also a good website for younger women with hormone questions. I guess you can tell that I'm pretty confused by this issue also. Google Ronald L Brown MD charlotte also he has a website on this issue. Phillipa
