Menopause is a definite stage all women go through.  Some are lucky and sail through effortlessly, painlessly and without any debilitating symptoms, but there are many women who have a plethora of worrisome, irritating and debilitating symptoms like sudden vaginal dryness, sleeplessness, depression, mood swings and very irregular periods.  While menopause cannot be defined by a simple test, SELFCheck menopause home (2 test) kits measure hormonal imbalance which is the most important indicator of menopause.  The SELFCheck menopause test kit measures your Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH) levels.  A constant high level of FSH - as high as 25mU/ml may indicate that your ovaries are not working and consequently no egg production is happening.  With high FSH and menopausal symptoms, you need medical guidance to know whether you are still fertile or in menopause.
Who can use these home test kits?  Menopause normally occurs after 40s in most women and for some, it can be as late as 60s.  If you happen to get sudden unexplainable symptoms or peri-menopausal symptoms, debilitating hot flushes, tiresome vaginal dryness and incapacitating sleep problems along with irregular periods, the SELFCheck menopause test kits can help assess the FSH levels in your urine and you can seek medical help for dealing with them effectively.  The most frequently asked questions - Are these home tests really useful?  What kind of accuracy is achieved with these tests?  All accept that SELFCheck menopause test kits do measure your FSH hormone level accurately, especially if you collect your very first morning urine for testing and, if you get fresh products with valid expiry dates from reputable companies like 1st Health Products, you can be sure of reliability.  SELFCheck menopause test kits can alleviate the worry and tension that normally affect women during their menopausal years, especially those women who display acute symptoms that can disturb daily routine.  These kits bring a feeling of being in charge of your health by knowing your FSH levels and seeking medical help to combat any of them successfully.  The benefit of carrying out a SELFCheck Menopause screening test in privacy ensures confidentiality as well as providing the necessary incentive needed to take further steps in terms of managing personal health earlier and facilitating consultation with a healthcare professional to enable earlier medical intervention should further action be needed.
