Frequently Asked Questions

How to test for the menopause

With a menopause testing kit, you can test for the menopause in the comfort and privacy of your own home. If you’re still having monthly periods, take the first menopause test during the first week of your cycle. If this result is negative but you’re still having symptoms, repeat with the second test a week later. If you’re no longer having monthly periods, take the first test anytime during the month and take the second test a week later.

Taking a menopause test is simillar to taking a pregnancy test; you hold the test into your urine stream and read the results after a few minutes, with the lines in the display window indicating whether the test is positive, negative or invalid. Alternatively, you can get a blood test from your GP to determine whether you’re in the menopause or not.


What is the menopause?

The menopause is a stage that women usually experience when they are between the ages of 45 to 55, and it refers to you stop having your periods. This can be sudden or gradual, for example, your periods may become infrequent before they stop altogether. The stage before your periods stop is called the perimenopausal stage.

What is early menopause?

Early menopause is when a woman’s periods stop before the age of 45.

 

It can happen naturally if oestrogen is no longer being produced, as the result of cancer treatment, or from a medical condition like Turner syndrome.

 

The signs of early menopause are similar to the typical symptoms of menopause, including hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and a lack of interest in sex, difficulty sleeping, low mood, and problems with memory.

 

The combined contraceptive pill or HRT is usually prescribed as a substitute for missing hormones.
