Blood test are not usually necessary to diagnose perimenopause and menopause however we think it best practice to exclude any other underlying causes of symptoms and we usually recommend blood tests if its your first appointment with us.
There is no need to have any tests before your first appointment. We tailor each set of tests to your personal needs after your first consultation with us. We find this approach minimises need for repeat tests and missing out on tests we feel may be helpful.
