Why can't this test diagnose menopause?
Menopause is a clinical diagnosis.
You've reached menopause if:
- you're over age 45
- have menopausal symptoms
- haven't had a period for 12 months
- you aren't using hormonal contraception
There’s no single blood test to diagnose menopause. This is because your hormones fluctuate throughout perimenopause and menopause. So your results won’t give you an accurate picture or valuable insights.
When should you do this blood test?
Great news — you can take this test anytime during the month.
We recommend fasting (not eating) for 8 hours before doing this test. Collect your sample in the morning for the most accurate results.
