MenoQUICK© is a rapid test for home use and intended for the detection of human Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) in a urine sample. The test helps to assess whether existing symptoms are caused by the climacteric (perimenopause /menopause).
Menopause refers to the time in a woman‘s life when she stops having a menstrual period. The time leading up to menopause is called perimenopause. Clinically, menopause is defined as the point at which a woman has not had a period in 12 consecutive months. Menopause is a natural physiological process during the life of a woman, which in most cases occurs between the age of 45 and 55. Signs differ between women: some may recognise their menopause from irregular menstruation, which finally stops completely. Others observe changes in their life brought on by symptoms like hot flashes, hair loss, sleep disorders or vaginal dryness. Before the period stops completely, menstrual cycles become irregular in many cases. This often leads to pregnancies in the climacteric, as many women mistakenly believe they are already infertile. The hormone FSH stimulates growth and maturation of ovarian follicles during the menstrual cycle. In women with a normal, regular cycle the FSH level fluctuates, reaching peak levels of ca. 25 mIU/mL mid-cycle. Menopause is noticeable by the change in sex hormone levels and the resulting symptoms. Since the body produces fewer and fewer estrogens (these hormons trigger ovulation, among other effects), FSH production increases, in order to raise estrogen production in the ovaries. This leads to elevated FSH levels, with an average of approximately 66.5 mIU/ml – 91.6 mIU/ml (Time of the last bleeding / 2 years after the last bleeding) Randolph et al. J Clin Endocrinol Metab 2011;96:746-754.
MenoQUICK© allows you to determine your FSH-concentration to ascertain whether you are in climacteric (the perimenopause or the menopause). You can then take the necessary steps to stay healthy and reduce medical risks which are associated with menopause, such as osteoporosis, hypertension or elevated blood cholesterol.
As an immunochromatographic rapid test MenoQUICK© detects the presence of FSHvalues over 25 mIU/ml in a urine sample. If the sample contains FSH, it will bind to anti-FSH-antibodies on the test line. Via the interaction with colloidal gold-labelled antiFSH-antibodies a visible red line is formed (T-line). The test also contains a control system with a control line (C-line). To determine and interpret the results correctly, it is necessary to carefully read the instructions. All details should be understood before performing the test.
