How do Menopause Test Kits work?

The end of menstruation in a woman is often referred to as the ‘change of life’. It is at this time that the ovaries of a woman stop producing eggs every month. This means that she will no longer be able to have a child and her periods will stop.

The average age at which a woman reaches menopause in the UK is 52. However, it is not unknown for women who are in their 30’s or 40’s to reach menopause. Premature menopause is the term use when a woman who is under 45 years old experiences menopause.

A woman’s periods can often stop as soon as menopause is reached. More often than not though, a woman does not stop menstruating straight away. Instead, they will see a drop in the number of periods they have, with longer gaps between each. Eventually periods will stop altogether.

Why does the Menopause occur?

A change in the balance of the body’s sex hormones cause menopause. Oestrogen levels decrease in the lead up to menopause (perimenopause). This cause ovulation to stop – an egg is no longer produced every month by the ovaries.

The oestrogen decrease can cause symptoms such as:

  • hot flushes
  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • dryness of the vagina

Menopause Test Kits

If you are experiencing the symptoms of menopause , and this is troubling you, we recommend that you make an appointment to see your GP straight away.There is no definitive test for the menopause. You could ask your doctor to carry out a blood test that will measure your levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).

Home testing kits for Menopause also exist. At Zoom Baby we offer two types of test that both detect increase levels of FSH. Normally, an increased level of FSH is a good indicator of menopause.

Two types of Menopause Test kits

Type 1: The Zoom Baby Female Fertility Test Kit consist of two midstream tests test for increased levels of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH).

Type 2: Zoom Baby Menopause Test Kits detect raised levels of FSH – this menopause test kit consists of three cassette tests, into which a sample of urine is placed using a dropper.

All Zoom Baby Menopause Test Kits are supplied with easy to understand, “Plain English” instructions
