MENOPAUSE FSH TEST
Rapid Test for the determination of the Follicle Stimulating Hormone- FSH in urine
Menopause is defined as the time when there have been no menstrual periods for 12 consecutive months and no other biological or physiological cause can be identified.
The menopause is caused by a modification of the hormonal balance in woman’s body. This change arises generally when close to 45 years old. But true signs are observed around 55 years old. An irregular duration of periods is an early indication of the menopause beginning (perimenopause).
Menopause is the consequence of the end of ovary follicle lifecycle leading to increase of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) circulating level.
Concentration of FSH increases during menopause passing from values less than 20 mUl/mL up to approximately 80 mUl/mL.
