From the expert

The menopause can be a difficult time for many women, not just emotionally, but also mentally and physically with symptoms ranging from mood swings and anxiety to fatigue, weight gain and hot flushes. A woman normally reaches menopause around the age of 51, but symptoms can start much earlier during perimenopause (menopause transition) and can often be confused for other conditions.

This test measures levels of key hormones such as FSH, LH and oestradiol. 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.

Thyroid hormones are also included as menopausal and thyroid symptoms can be similar. It is not uncommon for a thyroid condition to develop in the 40's or 50's so this test can give an insight into whether symptoms are due to menopause, thyroid or both. 

Why take this test?

  • You are experiencing symptoms which you think may be due to the menopause
  • You have a family history of early menopause
  • You want to rule out a thyroid condition
  • You want to learn more about your hormone balance
