The VagiVital Menopause FSH test is a Swedish self-test for pre-menopause/menopause. The test is clinically proven with 94% accuracy and is easy to use at home with answers within 5 minutes.

A menstrual cycle that becomes irregular is the early indication of the onset of menopause. FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) is the hormone that plays a central role in the female reproductive system. FSH is particularly important for the regulation of the menstrual cycle and ovulation where it stimulates the growth of egg follicles in the ovaries prior to ovulation. The concentration of FSH increases during menopause which the VagiVital Menopause FSH test detects.

The VagiVital Menopause FSH test is a user-friendly and high-tech product to detect the levels of the FSH hormone directly in your urine. As menopause approaches, the number of functioning follicles in the ovaries decreases, leading to decreasing levels of estrogen. As a response, the pituitary gland increases the production of FSH in an attempt to stimulate the ovaries, resulting in higher FSH levels.

VagiVital Menopause FSH test uses a method called immunochromatography. Simply put: Think of immunochromatography as an advanced filter paper. As you apply urine to the test strip, it moves through this 'filter'. If the FSH hormone is present in the urine, it sticks to special places on the strip thanks to special substances (antibodies) that can recognize and bind to this particular hormone. This allows the test to show whether FSH levels are high, which is a sign of premenopause/menopause.

The irregularity of your menstrual cycles can be one of the first signs that you are approaching menopause. This phase involves a natural change in your body where ovarian function gradually decreases. This leads to higher levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in the blood. Normally, FSH levels are below 20 mIU/mL, but during menopause they can rise to about 80 mIU/mL. The VagiVital Menopause FSH Test can detect the presence of FSH in urine as soon as the concentration increases to 25 mIU/mL and above.

Premenopause is the phase when estrogen production begins to change and most women experience more irregular periods. On average, women have close to four years of irregular periods before their last period. Common symptoms during premenopause can be mood swings, sleep problems and irregular periods. A menstrual cycle that becomes irregular is the early indication of the onset of menopause.

Menopause is when a woman has had her last period when estrogen drops to permanently low levels. Common symptoms during menopause can be dry mucous membranes, hot flashes and urinary tract infections.

The VagiVital Menopause FSH test diagnoses with 94% accuracy and gives women an answer as to whether they are in premenopause/menopause. Getting a clear answer can give women a greater understanding of why they have different symptoms, which gives more opportunities to also start treating and taking care of themselves and their bodies with the symptoms that pre-menopause/menopause can entail.

1. Remove the protective cap and place the absorbent tip directly under the stream of urine for at least 10 seconds, alternatively, collect the urine in a clean and dry container and dip the absorbent tip into the urine for 10 seconds.

2. Put the protective cap back on the stick.

3. Place the test stick on a dry, flat surface with the result window facing up.

4. Wait 5 minutes before reading the result.

5. If the test has been performed correctly, a colored line will appear in the control window.

Negative result: The test shows only one line. FSH levels are below the limit. This suggests that menopause probably hasn't started yet.

Positive result: The test shows two lines. Urinary FSH concentration is equal to or greater than 25 mIU/mL. Repeat the test after 5-7 days, as FSH levels can vary throughout the month.

Instructions

Question:Who is the VagiVital Menopause FSH test intended for?

Answer:
The VagiVital Menopause FSH test is intended for women who want to know if they have entered premenopause/menopause and are beginning to experience symptoms related to menopause with irregular menstrual cycles, hot flashes, difficulty sleeping and obvious mood changes.

Question: How does the VagiVital Menopause FSH test work?

Answer:
The VagiVital Menopause FSH test is designed to easily identify the level of the hormone FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) in the urine. If your FSH level is 25 mIU/mL or higher, the test shows a positive result.

Question: When can the test be performed?

Answer:
The VagiVital Menopause FSH test can be performed at any time during the month.

Question: At what time of day should the test be performed?

Answer:
The VagiVital Menopause FSH test can be performed at any time of the day. However, first morning urine usually contains higher levels of hormones, which can give a more reliable result.

Question: Can the result be incorrect?

Answer:
Correct results are obtained if the instructions are followed correctly. However, incorrect results may occur if the device becomes damp before the test is performed. In addition, in rare cases, false positive results may occur in young women (suffering from hormonal or metabolic disorders). In the event of unexpected or contradictory results, you should consult your gynecologist, as certain health conditions can affect the results of the test.

Question: If the test stick is left in the urine for more than 10 seconds, is the result accurate?

Answer:
Yes, a few seconds more does not affect the result.

Question: If the test stick is left in the urine for less than 5 seconds, is the result accurate?

Answer:
No, because the volume of sample absorbed may not be sufficient.

Question: What happens if the reading time is not followed?

Answer:
The test has been performed correctly when the instructions for use are followed. This includes the reading time and the interpretation of the results shown in the "INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS" section of the instructions for use.

Question: What should I do if the result is positive?

Answer:
If you get a positive result the first time, you should repeat the test after 5-7 days. If the second test is also positive, FSH levels have been high for an abnormally long period, which may mean menopause has begun. Contact your gynecologist for further advice.

Question: What should I do if the result is negative?

Answer:
If the result is negative, the FSH levels in the urine are below 25 mIU/mL, which means menopause has not started yet. However, if you experience symptoms of menopause, you should repeat the test after 40-60 days or consult a gynecologist.

Question: Can the test be used as contraception?

Answer:
No, the test is not intended for that purpose and should not be used as contraception.

Question: Does stopping oral contraceptives (the pill) affect the results? 

Answer: For some time after you stop taking oral contraceptives, your menstrual cycle may be irregular, which can affect the results. You should wait about two months before performing the test.

Question: Why can you get a positive result on the test even though you still have periods?

Answer:
A positive test means that urinary FSH levels are above 25 mIU/mL, which may indicate that menopause is about to begin. Menopause (menopause) is defined as the absence of menstruation for 12 consecutive months in the absence of other causes. However, this biological change in women is gradual and is preceded by a period called perimenopause, the duration of which can vary. The reason for positive results while menstruation continues may mean that you are in pre-menopause.

Question: What is the accuracy of the test?

Answer:
VagiVital Menopause FSH test has over 94% accuracy.

Question: How do you know the test worked correctly?

Answer:
A colored line will appear in the control area (C), indicating that the test was performed correctly. The absence of the colored line indicates that the test should be repeated with a new device and a new sample.

Question: How to interpret the test if the control and test lines have different intensities?

Answer:
The color and intensity of the lines do not affect the interpretation of the result. The test should be considered positive regardless of the color intensity of the test line (T).

Question: Can birth control pills affect the result?

Answer:
 Birth control pills can affect FSH levels (follicle-stimulating hormone) in order to prevent follicle development and ovulation, meaning that birth control pills can influence the outcome of the VagiVital Menopause FSH Test. If you stop taking birth control pills, you should also wait about two months before conducting the test.
