Thanks for writing to with your health concern.

Since you have a family history of early menopause, you have to test for it. There is a very objective way to know if you are having early menopause.

Just go for the following hormonal evaluation on the 2nd day of your period - FSH, LH, serum estradiol.

The levels will tell you if this is the case.

If it is, you would need estrogen supplementation in addition to progesterone ( which cerazette contains ) to help you feel better.

In any case, daily exercise, eating healthy , yoga and meditation will always be helpful.

All the best.

Please feel free to discuss further.

Thanks for reply
I haven't had a period for 16 years due to being on the pill constantly for my headaches so how would I know when my second day is ???
Do I just have the test anytime

Thanks for writing to us again.
Yes you can have a test any random day if you do not menstruate regularly.
Once you have taken the test, you can upload your reports and i will assist you further.
