The increasing of the FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) is associated with the decrease of estrogens and the onset of the menopause in women. In general, as a woman approaches the age of menopause, the FSH level increases to up to ten times the normal value.
The perimenopause is the transition period between the fertile period and the menopause and it can last between 2 and 10 years. During this period the first unpleasant symptoms may appear: hot flashes, insomnia, irregular cycles, sudden mood swings and tiredness.
Testing is recommended every 6-12 months, starting at the age of 35, or when the first symptoms appear. Discuss the results of the test with your doctor.
How to use?
Collect the urine in a clean and dry container. Place the test in urine with the tip of the arrow down to the line marked MAX for 3 seconds.
Place the test on a flat surface and wait for 10 minutes to display the result. The result read after 15 minutes will not be considered correct.
How to interpret the result?
One single red line appears in the control zone (C), or a line also appears in the test zone (T), but lighter in colour.
You are not in the menopause period.
The test shows two lines and test (T) is as intense as or darker than the control line (C).
You are in the perimenopause or menopause period.
THE TEST IS NOT VALID
