Laboratory findings consistent with the diagnosis of menopause include an elevated Follicle Stimulating Hormone > 40 mIU/mL, decreased estradiol level <20 pg/ml, and decreased serum of the Anti-Mullerian Hormone level < 0.20 ng/ml. In addition to other blood tests that are related to premature menopause such as positive karyotype test of FMR1 in Fragile X syndrome and decrease of Thyroid-stimulating hormone.
