Frequently Asked Questions
Why test for FSH?
The menopause is the signal that menstruation has ended. However, in some cases it can take months after periods have stopped for medical professionals to confirm the menopause. The 12 months leading up to that point is known as the perimenopause, during which women can experience a number of symptoms of varying severity. Testing for FSH can help women know whether they are in the perimenopause stage and therefore take personal steps and get professional help to avoid menopause health risks.
When to test for FSH?
It’s recommended you test urine first thing in the morning when the concentration of the FSH hormone should higher.
What risks are associated with menopause?
With the presence of FSH and confirmation of the perimenopause stage, women can take steps to keep their body healthy and seek medical advice to avoid menopause health risks such as osteoporosis, increased blood pressure and cholesterol, and increased risk of heart disease.
It’s recommended you take the tests 2 weeks apart. If you get two positive results you are most likely in perimenopause. 1 negative and 1 positive result may signal the early stages of perimenopause. 2 negative results would more than likely suggest perimenopause is not in cycle. There is a handy guide on interpreting results with the instructions. Read instructions before use. Consult a doctor if you get a positive result, have menopause symptoms or have any concerns or questions about the menopause or perimenopause.

Menopause and Symptoms
The menopause is the point at which a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to have a child.
The menopause generally occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman’s oestrogen levels decline. But the NHS state a small number of women experience the menopause before 40.
Some of menopause symptoms are associated with other conditions such as Hypothyroidism. Therefore, confirming the presence of the follicle stimulating hormone helps women to understand whether they are experience the menopause or another condition.
In a UK documentary, TV star Davina McCall highlighted her experience where she believed she was developing early onset dementia, due to memory loss and brain fog, rather than going through perimenopause leading up to the onset of menopause.
