Menopause Test

Wondering if your symptoms may be a sign of menopause? Our test can help you find out.

Menopause is a natural and personal milestone that can cause significant changes. In fact, 3 out of 4 people experiencing menopause describe symptoms including hot flashes, sleep disturbances and others that interfere with daily life. 1 Our Menopause Test measures estradiol (a type of estrogen), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and progesterone—all of which are key hormones related to normal reproductive functioning and menopause. This all-in-one test empowers you to understand your symptoms and have informed conversations with your provider.

What's Tested
  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

    FSH is a protein made by the pituitary gland in the brain to stimulate ovulation. At menopause, the ovaries become less responsive to FSH and LH hormones resulting in elevated levels of these hormones. Hormone levels may fluctuate widely during a woman’s life especially during pregnancy and the menopause transition.

  • Estradiol (E2)

    E2 is a type of estrogen hormone that is made primarily in the ovaries. Throughout a woman’s life, estrogen levels rise and fall, often in sync with other hormones during the menstrual cycle. Estradiol levels decline with age and decrease significantly during menopause, resulting in many of the classic symptoms associated with menopause such as irregular periods, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, etc. 

  • Luteinizing Hormone (LH)

    LH is a protein that is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain and is one of the main hormones that regulate reproductive function. LH is an important complement to FSH and Estradiol in assessing hormonal status.

  • Progesterone

    A hormone that is produced primarily by the ovaries and is essential for regulating menstruation and supporting pregnancy.  Low levels of progesterone may cause symptoms like irregular periods, mood changes and trouble conceiving.

  • Our blood test for menopause measures four key hormones: estradiol (E2), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and progesterone. We’re here to support your menopause journey by providing hormone test results that can help kick start a conversation with your healthcare provider.


    This test provides a snapshot of your hormone levels at the time of testing. Repeatedly high FSH levels over time is considered a hallmark laboratory marker of menopause.Typically, FSH levels increase and estradiol levels decrease as menopause occurs. A consistently elevated level of FSH, a lack of menstrual period for 12 months, along with menopausal symptoms, indicates you are likely in post-menopause.


    Menopause is defined as having 12 consecutive months of no menstrual periods and any bleeding after that timeframe should prompt an immediate discussion with your provider.


    This is a great time to start or continue lifestyle changes (balanced nutrition, physical activity, stress management, limit alcohol and caffeine), to promote healthy aging. It is important to have regular checkups with your provider to discuss preventive screenings to maintain good overall health and wellbeing.

  • This blood test is intended for women who are 45 years of age and older. While the test cannot diagnose menopause, it may help you understand why you’ve been experiencing symptoms related to menopause.


    This menopause test is not intended for:

    • Individuals experiencing menopause symptoms before age 45. The average menopause age is at around 51 years. About 1% of women in the US have early or premature menopause.4 If you are under age 40 and suspect you have menopause symptoms or notice an abrupt change in your symptoms, you should see your healthcare provider for further evaluation.
    • Individuals who may be on hormonal treatments, including but not limited to Tamoxifen, a drug used for breast cancer treatment, or Leuprolide, a synthetic hormone injection designed to help treat endometriosis, are recommended to avoid taking this test, as those treatments can affect the test results. 
    • Individuals on hormone therapy or hormonal contraception, including birth control injections such as Depo-Provera, birth control pills, birth control implants such as Nexplanon and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medication, are recommended to avoid taking this test, as these may interfere with menopause blood testing.


    Ask your healthcare provider if you have questions about specific medications before testing.

  • If you have no menstrual cycle or have irregular menstrual cycles, you can test at any time.


    If you are still menstruating, it is recommended to test on day 3 of your menstrual cycle (cycle day 1 is the first day of your period). Since the hormones in this blood test fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle, results will vary somewhat on any given day. Day 3 of your menstrual cycle is considered the “baseline” because that's typically when estradiol, FSH, LH, and progesterone are most stable. 

  • Although there are no clear guidelines on how often you should take this test, you may consider testing yearly to track your hormone levels over time.


    Like other tests, tracking your hormone levels over time can provide information that you and your healthcare provider can discuss in order to make informed and proactive decisions about your menopause journey.
