so you may want to get your FSH/LH tested on CD3 to check it out. There are tests you can purchase which test for FSH levels ... they actually test for levels higher than 30 (I think) so anyone thinking of using them to test your FSH on a regular basis... unless you have REALLY REALLY high FSH.. they are not useful. Essentially they are a test for menopause level FSH. ramble ramble.... well, I think your 'symptoms' may be from the herbs. Another sign of peri-menopause will be low E2 levels which may also result in hot flashes, night sweats and heart palpatations.
