Low FSH and in menopause?
I had my ovaries surgically removed 4 months ago, and was on Lupron for 7 months prior to that due to breast cancer.  The Lupron should have chemically shut down my ovaries, before they were surgically removed.  In essence, I have been "postmenopausal" for a year now.  I just had some labs drawn and my doctor ordered a FSH level.  To my surprise, the FSH was only 6 which is normal for a Pre-Menopausal woman.  Postmenopausal FSH levels are > 35  How can that be?  Why would that be?  Could I have a pitutary dysfunction of some sort?

Thanks for any info.
