Special instructions

Take this test between days 2 and 5 of your period. It can be taken at any time if you are not having periods. HRT and the contraceptive pill can affect the results of this test, taking the test during a break from these will give more accurate results. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor.

From the expert

Levels of FSH rise in women as egg production declines, so it may be used in certain circumstances to assess the likelihood of whether a woman is going through the menopause.

The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE) recommend that FSH testing is only considered to diagnose menopause in women aged 40-45 with menopausal symptoms (including a change in their menstrual cycle) or in women under the age of 40 in whom menopause is suspected. 

Due to significant fluctuation in FSH levels around the time of menopause, there is a chance that this test may show normal pre-menopause levels of FSH in someone who is going through, or has been through, the menopause.

Why take this test?

  • You want to check your levels of FSH
  • You want to investigate whether you are going through the menopause
