Women, to evaluate fertility
Estradiol production naturally begins to decrease as women enter middle age and the menopausal period. As these estrogen levels decline, women begin to experience many of the symptoms related to menopause.
This is the hormone responsible for triggering the ovaries to release an egg in ovulation. As estrogen levels decrease in menopause, Luteinizing Hormone (LH) increases.
Follicle-stimulating hormone helps stimulate the maturation of ovarian follicles. These in turn, release eggs during the reproductive cycle. In menopausal women however, FSH levels increase and remain high for the rest of their lives.

Symptoms of menopause vary among women and range in severity from temporary mild discomfort to serious sometimes debilitating long-term effects.
These can include:
Disruption in sleep patterns
Changes in mood
Changes in weight (usually gain)
Absence of menstruation
Tenderness in breasts
Changes in skin quality
Lapses in memory (especially short-term)
As women age important hormonal changes take place that greatly affect both physical and mental processes. Biomarkers for key hormones, Estradiol (E2), Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) provide vital information necessary to assess hormone health as women transition through menopause. Although actual menopause occurs when a woman no longer ovulates and has not had a menstrual period for at least 12 consecutive months, symptoms can present many years before the actual cessation of menstruation and continue long after the final menstrual cycle.
Sometimes menopause can occur prematurely due to surgery such as a hysterectomy, ovarian insufficiency, or other medical problem. It may also occur because of certain medical treatments or medications as well. Lifestyle can affect the age of menopause in some cases, since women who smoke generally enter this life stage about one year earlier than women who do not.
Menopause can affect other areas of health including:
- Urinary Tract
- Sexual Function
Estradiol (E2) is one of three estrogens a woman produces mainly in the ovaries, and in small amounts in fat cells and adrenal glands. Estradiol is the most potent of estrogens and helps facilitate the development of sexual organs and secondary sex characteristics during puberty. E2 further modulates the follicular phase of reproduction while helping to prepare the uterine lining for egg implantation. In men, estrogen helps moderate libido, erectile function and the production of sperm.
Luteinizing hormone (LH) produced in the pituitary gland signals ovulation in women and helps develop the corpus luteum, a mass of cells created for the production of progesterone. In males, LH supports Leydig cell production in testosterone.
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) facilitates and regulates growth and development, puberty, and specific reproductive functions in both sexes. Synthesized and secreted by gonadotropic cells in the pituitary gland, FSH is classified as a glycoprotein polypeptide hormone.

This at-home menopause test kit was designed to assess hormone levels associated with menopause, perimenopause and the menopause transition in women. It is not intended to identify other medical conditions associated with reproductive health. By the time a woman reaches her 40’s, hormone levels associated with the menopausal period fluctuate and decrease. The age of actual menopause when a woman has not had a menstrual cycle for a period of at least 12 consecutive months varies. This generally occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.
Testing is designed for informational purposes and as a tool to support further discussion with your physician or other healthcare practitioner. You should always consult your doctor for any specific health questions, diagnosis or medical treatment.
