Do I require lab testing or blood work for menopause treatment?

At Felix, we do not require testing to assess or treat menopause symptoms. This phase of life is natural and expected, and clinical guidelines recommend that treatment be prescribed by way of symptom review rather than lab tests or blood work.   

The standard recommendation is that if a patient is of an appropriate age to be going through menopause, and no other issues are present, labs testing hormone levels are not necessary and offer little value in diagnosing and treating symptoms normally seen in menopause. Due to fluctuating hormones, testing can end up being misleading and therefore problematic.
