Home Use Tests for Menopause, FDA Approved
Menopause...something that most women face at some time in their life. Now, there is a "home-use" test for menopause that has been approved by the FDA. As disappointing and surprising as it may seem, many aspects of the menopause process remain a mystery to medical science. The medical definition of menopause is when menstrual periods stop for 12 months as a consequence of the ovaries shutting down. Menopause is not defined by a blood test, or a urine test, or any laboratory test for that matter.
