High FSH, low estradiol = perimenopause?

Hey, all. I'm 43 years old and the mother of three. I had some tests earlier this year that for whatever reason included estradiol, FSH and LH. (I didn't request them.) I'm not trying to conceive but my periods are suddenly very wonky so I'm wondering whether I'm technically going into menopause.

My Day 3 levels were:

Estradiol: 2.2 (ref range 3.0 - 10.0)
FSH: 15.0 (ref range 3.5 - 12.5)
LH: 8.6 (ref range 2.4 - 12.6)

Any help would be great. Thanks!

No, I have a FSH of 15 and was told it wasn't perimenapause until the numbers become much higher. You just have decreased fertility or low ovarian reserve. I'm not sure about the other numbers. Hope that helps
