Women are wasting their time and money buying do-at-home menopause-testing kits, top UK doctors say.

The urine tests are not predictive enough to tell whether a woman is going through the phase when her periods will stop, they warn.

Results could cause anxiety and confusion, and might even contribute to unplanned pregnancies, says the British Menopause Society.

Manufacturers say the kits should never replace medical advice.

One company that makes them said the tests could help women worried about the perimenopause, when periods can become erratic.

I Call Bull: Calling BULL on these tests that are really not worth it then when you could contact a Menopause Mentor for a free 1/2 hour consultation instead and actually get proper advice on how to manage it and work your way through it

These should be taken off the shelf for false advertising

If these tests aren't medically proven to do what they are being sold for then surely they should be withdrawn under trade descriptions?

This is now getting widespread press attention so hopefully the useless home Tests will stop now.

Sounds like someone making easy money off of dodgy tests then?
