Menopause typically occurs in women aged between 45-55. However, it can occur earlier in women depending on their health and lifestyle. If you’ve begun to experience menopausal symptoms, we recommend using our test to determine if you are reaching or have begun menopause. We don’t recommend using our test if you are taking the combined hormonal contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
