What is a Menopause Test?
Our Menopause Test will assess your menopausal status by measuring the levels of five key hormones involved in regulating the reproductive cycle. Hormones regulate different processes and systems within your body including digestion, lactation, metabolism and reproduction.
This kit needs a professional to collect your sample for you.
Why consider a Menopause Test?
Changes in hormone levels can indicate a pending or established menopause, or issues with the pituitary or thyroid glands. If you have been experiencing symptoms such as hot flushes, mood swings or erratic periods, this screen is suitable for you.
How does this test work?
This test requires a blood sample which you can collect yourself at home. Once you have collected your blood sample, place it in the envelope provided and send it to our accredited UK laboratory for fast and accurate analysis.
What tests will be run on my sample?
The Better2Know Menopause Test comprises testing for:
- Luteinizing hormone (LH). Helps to control the menstrual cycle.
- Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This is important the production of eggs in the ovaries.
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). This controls production of the thyroid hormones.
- Free thyroxine (FT4). This can assist in determining whether your thyroid is functioning properly.
