- How it works
Which hormones will the Menopause Screen identify?
Our Menopause Screen comprises testing for:
- Free thyroxine (FT4)
- Luteinizing hormone (LH)
- Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
- Oestradiol (17 Beta) (A hormone which affects the activity of the ovaries)
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
Hormones regulate different processes within your system that include digestion, lactation, metabolism and reproduction. They are produced by certain cells in your body. Better2Know’s Menopause Screen will detect the levels of five important hormones that are involved in regulating a woman’s reproductive cycle. Changes in these levels can indicate a pending or established menopause, or issues with the Pituitary or Thyroid glands.
Is the Menopause Screen accurate?
Better2Know’s choice of screens and tests are reviewed regularly by medical experts to ensure high quality testing. This test is CE marked, and analysis is conducted by our CPA accredited laboratory to ensure fast and accurate results.
How does this test work?
Once you have received your discreet package, you will be required to take a blood sample using a finger prick lancet that is provided in your home test kit. You will be emailed instructions on how to collect your sample so please follow this guidance carefully. A postage-paid envelope is also included in your kit; please use this to send your samples to our certified laboratory for analysis.
When will my Menopause Screen kit arrive?
Home test kits that are ordered before 4pm, Monday to Friday, will be sent via first class post on the very same day. You should receive your package the next working day, or the day after, depending on your location.
How long before I get my Menopause Screen results?
Results will be available one working day from when your sample has been received at the lab. The secure patient area on the Better2Know website will give you access to your results when they are ready. Our Patient Services staff will email you your log in details. Better2Know’s sexual health advisors will contact you, unless specified otherwise, once all your results are ready to report.
Is the Better2Know Menopause Screen confidential?
Better2Know’s private STI testing services adhere to our confidentiality policy which states that no patient information, including results, will be shared to third parties without consent from the individual. This is unless the law requires us to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When will you send my kit to me?
If your order is placed before 4pm on a working day, then it will be sent the same day. Otherwise it will be sent on the next working day.
Q: Why do you need my email address?
Your Patient Services Manager, Louise Wright, will email you your login details to access your results, a confirmation your kit has been dispatched and finally when all your results are ready. We do not sell on or email you any other marketing materials, that is why we do not ask you to opt in or out of anything.
Q: Do I need to use my real name?
No, but the postman does need to know where to deliver the kit to. As long as you use a name that will get the kit to you, then we do not need your real name.
Q: What if I do not want to pay by card?
Our payment reference on your card will show up as "health screen" so it will not link your purchase to Better2Know. If you do not want to pay by card then we can also accept PayPal and cash. Please call our Patient Services Team to arrange payment.
Q: What does the kit packaging look like?
It will arrive in plain white envelope with your typed name and address on it.
Q: What if I have any more questions?
You can email Louise by replying to one of the emails she has sent to you. She will do her best to answer them.
