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.
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.
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.
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.
