Empowering information

Women have different attitudes towards menopause. Some women embrace menopause as a natural and liberating experience, whilst others consider it a hot flushy nightmare. Many women don't realise they're experiencing menopause at all and attribute their symptoms to stress or their lifestyle.

This simple menopause blood test monitors your hormone changes to predict the onset of menopause, and eliminates the guesswork.

Typically women reach menopause at around 51 years of age when the ovaries start winding down. Perimenopause is where the hormonal symptoms of menopause start and can last anywhere from a few months to several years. Unpredictable hormone fluctuations can cause headaches, irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, sleeping difficulties, frequent urination, mood swings and facial hair. These symptoms typically disappear once the ovaries have officially retired.

Pending the outcome of your menopause blood test, our medical professionals can give you advice on how to manage your symptoms.

What we test

Female Hormone Panel

This blood test measures the levels of key hormones that change with peri-menopause. This menopause blood test can also be used to monitor Hormone Replacement Therapy.

This menopause blood test measures:

Levels decline with age and results in menopause when the ovaries stop producing eggs. Low levels of oestradiol can lead to osteoporosis, problems with the menstrual cycle and fertility, as well as fatigue and depression.

Important in the production of eggs by the ovaries. Levels of FSH rise in women as egg production declines, therefore raised FSH is an indicator of the onset of the menopause.

The sex hormone produced mainly in the ovaries following ovulation and is a crucial part of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone helps to combat PMS and period pain issues, assists fertility and promotes calmness and quality of sleep.

Test instructions

This blood test should be completed on Day 17 of the menstrual cycle (where day 1 is the first day of menstrual bleeding).
