What is the selfcheck menopause home test kit?

The SELFCheck menopause home test kit is an immunological test for detection of FSH (Follicle-stimulation-hormone) in urine.

This is because the number of ovarian follicles (that contain your eggs) falls as you begin to enter menopause. Because there are fewer follicles, your body produces less of a hormone called Inhibin B that brings FSH levels down. Therefore, your FSH rises and this is a marker for being in the menopause.

When a woman's FSH blood level is consistently elevated to 30 mIU/mL or higher, and she has not had a menstrual period for a year, it is generally accepted that she has reached menopause.

What's included in the selfcheck menopause home test kit?

Each pack contains:

  • Two test strips, individually packed in foils (You need to take two tests, one week apart to determine positive results)
  • Desiccant( a drying agent to protect from moisture)
  • Instructions for use

How do I use the selfcheck menopause test?

The test consists of urine test strips. One should be used initially, and if needed, the second one is used one week later. For optimum results, the test should be carried out first thing in the morning.

How long does it take to see the results?

Results are shown within 10 minutes of the test being taken. Discard results after 15 minutes.

What is the menopause?

Menopause means the last menstrual period. Periods stop because the low levels of oestrogen and progesterone do not stimulate the endometrium (lining of the womb) in the normal cycle. Hormone levels can fluctuate for several years before eventually becoming so low that the endometrium stays thin and does not bleed.

What are the signs and symptoms of the menopause?

Symptoms include:

  • Hot flushes
  • Vaginal itching and dryness
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Heart problems
  • Low libido
  • Dry eyes
  • Painful joints
  • Slow digestion

Why should I test for post menopause?

The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman's oestrogen levels decline. In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach the menopause is 51.

However, variations occur and women can reach menopause as early as 39, or as late as 69 years of age.

Around 1 in 100 women experience the menopause before 40 years of age. This is known as premature menopause or premature ovarian insufficiency.

Who is it for?

Women who think they may have reached the stage of menopause.

What action do I take if the result is positive?

You should consult your GP who can confirm that you have entered the menopause and help you to find the most suitable way to reduce the symptoms.
