Our menopause test is a health check profile designed for women at all stages of the menopause right from early and perimenopause, through to post-menopausal women.
It’s a home blood test that allows you to keep a check on your hormone levels and the impact that changes in these levels might be having on your bone density.
The profile includes an FSH test, LH and Oestradiol (Oestrogen) hormone check. In addition, it assesses your levels of vitamin D and calcium, which are key markers for bone health. When oestradiol levels drop during the menopause, it can cause bones to weaken and lose strength. In turn, this can lead to osteoporosis. It’s therefore vital for women who are experiencing or who have gone through the menopause to look after bone strength through exercise and by getting sufficient calcium and vitamin D.
Bone health is an important issue for women during and post the menopause which is a time when they are at increased risk of osteoporosis.
This menopause health test is a simple finger prick test which is taken at home. It measures 3 key markers for bone health as well as the 3 key female hormones.

I was keen to use Forth’s service to help monitor my haematological markers in particular since I've had problems in the past and by the time they are picked up by the GP I'm normally feeling unwell. The test was quick and easy to do and results were back very quickly. The results are also incredibly accurate, being almost identical to those from tests done by my GP the same day.
As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll. Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I can adapt my training and lifestyle.
I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron. My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP. Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health
I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.
I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low. By using Forth to test key biomarkers has put me in control of the areas I need to improve.
I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.
Forth really helped me understand issues that I was having, which in the end turned out to be problems with iron absorption. Without their test I would never have known this. I now have the knowledge I need to improve.
As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body.
