am i peri- or post-menopausal?

Hi Sisters,

While researching ovarian cysts I noticed the rate of cysts being cancerous changes between peri- and post-menopause (definitely higher post-menopause).

I had TAH-LSO in 1991 (aged 29), RSO in 1997 and put on CES .625 estrogen for 9 years. Now at age 43, I've been diagnosed with probable ovarian remnants, and an 8 cm (and growing) cyst. I've been taken off the estrogen, but now I'm trying to figure out if I'm peri- or post-menopausal. I'm having Estradiol and FSH levels checked next week...will the results be able to tell me?

Thank you all for any info or insight.

If you have not gone through a natural menopause and both ovaries have been removed you are officially surgically menopausal.
