So low FSH means you still not in perimenopausal group.These symptoms can be due to other reasons like stress, anxiety,thyroid disorders or even other hormonal imbalances. You need a consultation.Even you might be beneficial by hormone replacement despite low FSH and if no other cause can be sought out as a cause.
