Buy SELFCheck Menopause Test Online

The SELFCheck Menopause Test can identify whether you have transitioned to the menopause through a simple urine test.

The menopause is when oestrogen levels drop and the frequency of periods declines before ceasing entirely. The average age women reach the menopause in the UK is 51, but it typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

Before a woman reaches the menopause, hormones in the body fluctuate - particularly follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This hormone reaches a peak of 25 IU/L and remains elevated. It is this fluctuation in hormonal levels which cause the typical symptoms of the menopause, such as:

  • Changes in sex drive
  • Depression
  • Digestion issues
  • Dry eyes
  • Heart problems
  • Hot flushes
  • Insomnia
  • Joint pain
  • Sweating
  • Vaginal itching

This test looks for the elevated level of FSH which would indicate that you have entered the menopause. However, you should conduct a second test a week later to confirm your first results - for this reason, each test kit includes 2 tests.

The SELFCheck menopause test is quick and easy to use. Unlike a laboratory test, which requires you to send a sample to a lab for analysis and wait for results, the SELFCheck test kit can provide results in minutes after conducting the test at home.

You can buy a menopause test online from Prescription Doctor's UK registered pharmacy. We can dispatch your item the same day aimed for a delivery tomorrow, if you order before 3pm on weekdays.


How to use the SELFCheck Menopause Test

Before you perform the test, make sure you have everything you need to conduct the test. You should always read the information in the supplied leaflet before you carry out the test. Failing to follow the instructions in the leaflet can cause inaccurate results.

1.) Acquire a urine sample in a container, such as a disposable plastic cup. For the best results, you should acquire your urine sample first thing in the morning. You need to collect enough urine so that the urine is 2cm deep.

2.) Open the foil pack, being careful not to touch the two white areas of the test strip.

When you open the foil pouch, you will see a desiccant (small, white packet) which is used to keep the test strip humid. You should dispose of this packet carefully - dispose of it in a bin out of the sight and reach from children and pets. Do not discard the desiccant via water waste.

You may wish to keep the foil packaging to rest the used test strip on when waiting for your results.

Dip the "dipping zone" of the test strip into the urine sample for 3 seconds.

Do not allow the level of urine to go above the dipping zone.

3.) Take out the test strip from the sample of urine and put it down horizontally on a flat surface with the coloured part facing upwards. You can rest the test strip on the foil packaging to avoid spilling urine on any other surfaces.

4.) Wait for 10 minutes before reading the result. You can set a timer or reminder on your phone or smart home device to remind you to check your results.

Analysing your results

When you read your results, make sure you are in a well lit environment to ensure you can read the result properly. Compare your results to the examples in the leaflet.

Positive result
2 purple lines will appear on the result field. The lower line should be the same shade or darker than the upper line. You should repeat this test exactly 1 week later to confirm that you have reached the post menopause.
Negative result
If the lower line is a lighter shade than the upper line, or if only 1 upper line appears, the result is negative. This may mean you have not yet reached the menopause. You do not need to use the second test strip.
Invalid result
If no purple lines appear in the result field, the test is invalid. This can happen due to an error in conducting the test, damage to the foil packaging or improper storage.

Discarding the used test kit

Once you have interpreted your result, you can discard your used test kit via your general household waste.

Pour your urine down the toilet and discard of the container appropriately.

Do not flush the used test strip down the toilet.


Frequently asked questions

What should I do if my menopause test result is positive?

If your first test result is positive, you should replicate the test exactly a week later. If both tests yield a positive result, you can assume that you have passed the transition period of the menopause. In this instance, you should inform your doctor of the test result.

You may wish to speak to your doctor about treatments, particularly if your symptoms are causing you distress.

What should I do if my menopause test result is negative?

If your result is negative, you haven't reached the menopause yet. If you are experiencing symptoms, speak to your doctor.

Can I buy Menopause treatment online?

Yes, you can buy menopause treatments online from Prescription Doctor's private online pharmacy.
