Why take this test?
A hormonal roller coaster
Hormone levels can vary from cycle to cycle during perimenopause, and it's therefor recommended to test your hormones during more than one cycle. This test is recommended as a follow-up to Melio's Perimenopause Health test.
Do I need to fast?
Fasting is not necessary for this test. Taken at day 3 of the menstrual cycle if you are having periods or random day if you do not have periods. Hormonal contraceptives and HRT can affect results.
No hidden costs
Everything from the in-clinic blood draw and tracked shipment of samples to the lab, through to delivery of the results and medical report is included in the price.
This test is performed as an in-clinic blood draw by a trained health professional and the samples are analysed by UKAS accredited labs.
Markers included in the analysis
This test is recommended as a follow-up test to the Perimenopause Health Test. Perimenopause is the time when you are transitioning towards menopause, and the hormonal balance starts changing. This can result in menopausal symptoms but can also affect health in other ways, such as increased risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Perimenopause typically starts in your 40s but can happen earlier or later. Your results will be delivered together with a personal comment from one of our doctors. Click on the 'Reproductive hormones' tab for a breakdown of the markers included. You can also click on each marker to learn more. Please note that this test should only be taken on weekdays (Monday - Friday). You should also know that hormonal contraceptives and HRT can alter the results.
Reproductive hormones help women develop female sex characteristics, and play an important role in the menstrual cycle, fertility, and pregnancy. During the menopausal transition the levels of these hormones will gradually change towards a different pattern than during your more fertile years. Fertility goes down, but this change in hormonal balance can also result in other menopausal symptoms. It can also affect health in other ways, such as increased risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
