Most tests require a small blood sample, but some require a urine dipstick test. For all services, we ask that you make an appointment with our pharmacist for the screening service you require. At this appointment, you will be asked a few health screening questions to make sure the test is appropriate for you an to offer you the best advice for your health. You will be given information about the test, how it works and asked to sign a consent form.
The results will be available, usually within a few minutes, and professional advice will be on hand to explain the results, their meaning and if treatment or follow up is recommended.
All tests and results are entirely confidential, and no information is passed on without your explicit consent.
This test measures levels of the hormone FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) in urine, helping you to reliably identify whether you have gone through the menopausal transition phase.
A fresh urine sample is required, producing a visual result in 10 minutes. A recently passed urine sample can be taken in for testing, or a test strip can be taken home for use at a later time.
