  • Information

Luteinizing Hormone (LH)

LH or Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is key to regulating the menstrual cycle in women by functioning as a trigger. The levels of LH, which is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain, increase prior to ovulation. The amount of LH in blood stream can help determine healthy functioning of reproductive organs in both men and women. High LH levels indicate ovarian disorders/menopause in women and improper functioning of the pituitary gland, while it can indicate low testosterone levels in men. Lower levels of LH indicate pituitary gland disorders and high stress. When &going through perimenopause, there is a fluctuation of LH values in the blood and hence, regular checks are beneficial.


Oestrogen plays an important role in the growth and maturity of the female reproductive system. It is also essential for ensuring high bone density and regulating the cholesterol levels in the body. However, when the body is in the perimenopausal phase, oestrogen levels start decreasing which leads to cholesterol levels falling out of balance - an increase in the LDL (low-density lipoprotein) which is one of the primary reasons of heart related ailments and lower amounts of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) which is the healthy cholesterol. Increase in irritation in the urinary/vaginal tract can also be trace to lower oestrogen levels. Perimenopause test can measure the levels of oestrogen in the blood, help to identify if one is experiencing symptoms of perimenopause and get suitable medication.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)

FSH or Follicle Stimulating Hormone works together with LH, to regulate proper ovulation & oestradiol production and is primarily responsible for egg growth in ovaries. High FSH levels can help to identify poly-cystic ovary syndrome(PCOS) and when the body is going through perimenopause. Lower FSH levels indicate malfunctioning pituitary gland, weight loss and under-production of eggs by the ovary. Perimenopause test can measure the levels of FSH and help to identify if one is experiencing symptoms of perimenopause.


Progesterone is one of the key hormones which plays a significant role in maintaining the menstrual cycle and for readying the body for pregnancy. It works in unison with oestrogen to ensure the proper functioning of the female reproductive system. During perimenopause, lower levels of progesterone are observed which lead to multiple effects such as increased weight, mood swings, fibroids etc. The Perimenopause test is essential to establish that the body is going through perimenopause and the lower progesterone levels are not due to other reasons.

Have you been feeling any of these symptoms lately?

The Perimenopause Test is suitable for individuals experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:

1. Irregular period cycle

2. Bladder and vaginal problems

3. Weakness, due to lower bone density

4. Fluctuating cholesterol level in blood

5. Insomnia/irregular sleep patterns

6. Mood swings

Perimenopause can become less of a rough ride with proper care

The Perimenopause Test is essential to establish the advent of perimenopause in women. The blood test sample will detect the presence of FSH & LH to determine if you need to opt for external hormonal intake to reduce the symptoms caused by approach of menopause. Along with the report, we also provide our Certified Doctors' comments. In addition to that, the test also measures the levels of oestrogen and progesterone which get lower with the approach of menopause. Fluctuating levels of both the hormones can put the entire system out of sync and create a lot of unwanted side-effects.
