Menopause Stage Indicator

Menopause Stage Indicator

Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator provides an indication of your menopause stage1, so the more you learn about your stage, the better prepared you can be.

Helps you understand your menopause journey

The average age of menopause is 51 years but perimenopause can start many years before and symptoms can overlap with those of other health issues, which can leave you feeling confused and wondering if what you’re feeling is the start of the menopause journey, or perhaps something else.

Key features and benefits

Tracks FSH over several days

Though variable day-to-day, the hormone, FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) rises as you get closer to menopause, so tracking over several days indicates whether your overall level is ‘low’, ‘high’ or ‘variable’.


Free App

Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator uses 5 simple-to-use urine tests to track this key hormone over several days and combines the results with your personal cycle information and age in a FREE app.2


Smart Algorithm

The Smart Algorithm in the app uses your test results and personal data to calculate your likely menopause stage1:
Premenopause, Early perimenopause, Late perimenopause, Postmenopause

FAQ about Menopause Stage Indicator

Is Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator right for me?

Why is ‘Menopause’ not a stage given by the product?

While some people refer to being ‘in menopause', this can be quite confusing as sometimes they can mean the time leading up to their last period (i.e., the ‘perimenopause’) or other times they can mean after they haven’t had a period in over a year (i.e., ‘postmenopause’).

On top, ‘menopause’ actually only refers to the day marking 12 months since your final period. This means menopause technically only lasts for a single day between the late perimenopause and postmenopause stages. Clearblue® Menopause Stage Indicator is designed to help you understand your menopause journey, by providing you more information about the stage you are likely to be in1:

  • Premenopause
  • Early perimenopause
  • Late perimenopause
  • Postmenopause

When can I test?

There are no special ‘rules’ on when to start testing – you can start at any time in your cycle, but there are a few things you need to remember:

  • Always use the first urine of the day as that’s when hormones are most concentrated
  • You need to test 5 times on alternate days, so make sure you pick a time to start testing that’s convenient for you, and don’t forget you can get reminders of test days via the app!
  • If you are testing during your period, it’s best to avoid testing on days when you’re bleeding heavily
