Menopause Status


Menopause typically happens at 45-50 years of age. However, about 1 in 10 women experience ‘pre-menopause’, an earlier hormone change from 40 years of age. Symptoms include fatigue, anxiety, hot flushes, sleeping issues, irregular periods, night sweats and mood changes. It is possible to experience Breast Implant Illness and menopause simultaneously, and many symptoms overlap. This Menopause Status test measures the female hormones:

  • Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
  • Luteinising hormone (LH)
  • Oestrogen (OES)

This will give an indication of your ovarian function and identify whether you might be entering menopause and therefore benefit from a discussion about alternative treatments before deciding what to do with your implants. If you are still having periods, please take the test on day 3 of your cycle.
