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?
