Frequently Asked Question

What does this test look for?

This test will look at reproductive hormones (Oestradiol, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinising hormone (LH)) as these hormone levels will change. Fertility will reduce but the rebalance can affect health in other ways such as increased risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D levels are also checked as these can worsen menopausal related symptoms.

After menopause, a woman’s cholesterol levels tend to worsen, so we check HDL cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol, Total Cholesterol and Triglycerides.

Thyroid problems are more common among women and in many cases like symptoms experience during the menopausal transition. We check thyroid markers (FT4 and TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)) to ensure an accurate analysis
