Overview: This kit broadly measures the primary hormones affecting a woman’s well being and reproductive health. These hormones also indicate performance of her ovaries, hypothalamus, and adrenal and pituitary glands.
Fasting Required: Yes – 10 to 12 hours
Estradiol: Estradiol is the predominant form of estrogen. Estradiol imbalance can cause depression, increased body fat, decreased bone density and sexual dysfunction.
Testosterone: Abnormally low levels of testosterone can decrease sexual performance, muscle and bone strength, and increase fatigue and depression.
DHEA,s: Low DHEA-S levels will lead to reduced levels of other sex hormones and also can cause depression, loss of bone and muscle strength, and low sexual function.
Progesterone: Progesterone regulates ovulation in females, and sperm production and sexual behaviour in males. Progesterone imbalances can cause infertility, weight gain, low sex drive and depressive symptoms.
Notes: Progesterone is included in this test requiring the sample to be collected on day 21 of your cycle. Instruction and support provided. Our customer service team is ready and able to answer any queries you may have in regard to this test. They will also assist in the interpretation of results if required.
