Who is this test for?
This test is suited to women who would like an indication of whether they are approaching (perimenopause) or going through the menopause. This is the stage in a women’s life where the menstrual cycle is changing and may even have stopped. People who are menopausal can no longer get pregnant naturally.
Please note this test should be taken in the morning between 7am and 10am and on day 3 of your cycle if you are having periods.
What you will discover
This test will assess the levels of your key hormones associated with changes in the menstrual cycle and will help determine whether you are entering, or have already entered, the first stages of menopause.
Menopause affects everyone differently, but it can be an extremely challenging period in a woman’s life. As well as the physical symptoms, such as hot flushes, irregular periods, itchy skin and hair loss, it can also affect your emotional well being, often leading to anxiety, irritability, forgetfulness and low mood.
By identifying hormonal changes that are associated with the menopause, this test could be your first step towards taking control and finding the best ways to manage the symptoms you are experiencing. For some this may be in the form of lifestyle changes, whilst others may want to discuss with their own doctor whether medical treatment such as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) would be suitable.
This test could be your first step towards taking control and finding the best way to navigate the challenges of menopause.
