Determine Hormone Test | TestoChecker

Which Hormones can be Tested using Saliva?

Very few actually.  Nine hormones have ‘made the grade’ by proving consistantly in laboratory research to provide relevant data for said hormoneal activity.

  • Androstenedione
  • DHEAs
  • Testosterone
  • Estradiol
  • Melatonin
  • Cortisol
  • Estrone
  • Estriol
  • Progesterone

They are universally tested using Saliva as a specimen type, and this is occuring every day in dozens of labs, both public and private, around Australia.

How Do I Know Which Hormone Test I Need?

The following information is designed as a guide to help determine a suitable hormone test. Using hormone testing is only advised in circumstances where the user has at least a moderate understanding of hormone health, the ability to interpret table/chart based results and make comparison to the reference ranges for both age and gender.

Category – Fitness [hormone testing and tracking]

  1. Androstenedione
  2. DHEAs
  3. Testosterone
  4. Estradiol
  5. Estrone

As with all Hormone Health Categories, the Hormones which are loosely referred to as ‘Fitness Hormones‘ also play other roles unrelated to exercise, motivation and stamina.

TestoChecker provides Hormone tracking bundle packs for continued observation of hormone behaviour over time. The used-by-date on the 4 Pack Single Hormone and 4 Pack Double Hormone is a whopping 2 years so don’t stress about having to hurry up.

Category – Aging [affected hormones]

  1. Testosterone
  2. DHEAs
  3. Estradiol

A natural aspect of aging is the change in hormone balance in both men and women. This is due to various factors, including the lowered production of some hormones, decreased sensitivity to certain hormones, or the knock-on effects of reduced hormone availability to make other hormones. Testosterone decline in Men, known as Andropause, is not the same for every individual. [cont’]

Recent research has shown that the decline in testosterone in men may begin when Men decrease physical activity. Suggesting that by maintaining fitness levels into middle age we can delay the decline of testosterone. Testosterone / estradiol ratios are provided and this can be useful for women wanting to understand the cause of facial hair in middle age. TestoChecker also provides Menopause Onset Detection test which whilst not meant as a diagnostic tool, can be useful for observational reasons or simply curiosity.


Category – Reproductive [hormone health]

  1. Testosterone
  2. Progesterone
  3. DHEAs
  4. Estriol 

Optimal reproductive health is governed by multiple factors such as nutrition, weight, stress and age. Couples who are trying to conceive can look to these areas and make lifestyle choices to boost their chances of becoming pregnant. In addition to this, the body’s hormone production is instrumental in ensuring that a woman’s eggs are healthy, that she successfully ovulates every month and that once fertilisation occurs, the embryo implants into the womb (uterus).

IMPORTANT: Please note that the Fertility Hormone Test offered by Testochecker is not a fertility “health” diagnostic test. Nor is it a pregnancy test. The test is used to check the health of the hormones required for conception and healthy carry-to-term. These hormones, and others,  play a vital role before, during, and after pregnancy in tandem with other roles in a far larger picture.

Always consult with your GP with regard to planning your first child, especially if you are unsure of how it works.


Category – Stress [+sleep hormones]

  1. Cortisol
  2. Melatonin
  3. DHEAs

Operating on a 24hr clock, the hormones cortisol and melatonin are the suited to Saliva as a testing method.  Why? Because we benefit greatly from being able to observe the output of these hormones from hour to hour for a wide-view of the hormone’s health. Far more insightful than a single snapshot test, the cortisol and melatonin Multi-Point Tests you will find on this website provide a “story” which is then formatted into charts/graphs.

View Tests – Stress / Sleep

MORE: Stress and anxiety can be a catalyst for a range of health problems including depression, poor concentration, low energy, insomnia, difficulty losing weight and reduced fertility. In this busy and demanding world, it is common to become stressed through work, family, and other life worries. In addition to emotional stress, physical stressors include things like poor diet, over-exercising and trauma, such as surgery. You can read more about the stress and sleep-wake cycle known as the Circadian Rhythm in this sourced post from our Blog:  ‘What is Melatonin Trying to Tell Us?’ (see list below)
