Menopause Screen-I

Menopause represents a significant stage in a woman's life, marking the end of her reproductive years. It's identified by a cessation of menstruation for 12 consecutive months and is typically accompanied by various symptoms due to hormonal changes. The Menopause Screen-I test includes a series of hormone tests—Estradiol (E2), Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Free Thyroxine (Free-T4), and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)—to help evaluate a woman's menopausal status and assess the function of the thyroid gland, which can sometimes be affected during this transitional period.

These hormonal measurements provide valuable information to healthcare providers as they can reflect changes in ovarian function (E2, FSH, LH) and thyroid function (Free-T4, TSH) that are often seen in perimenopause and menopause. This information can help guide treatment decisions and monitor potential health risks associated with menopause.

The frequency depends on your symptoms, medical history, and the discretion of your healthcare provider.

Normal levels can vary, but generally, an increase in FSH and LH along with decreased E2 can indicate menopause. For thyroid hormones, the normal range for TSH is typically 0.4 - 4.0 mIU/L, and for Free T4, it is usually 0.9 - 2.3 ng/dL.

No specific precautions are needed, although it's important to inform your healthcare provider of any medications or supplements you're taking, as these could affect the results.
