My name is Guy Saywell, manager at Testochecker. I am about to describe various uses for The Female Active Hormone Test which can be ordered and performed from home, contact-free.
Before I do though, if you’re considering testing fertility hormone health in preparation for pregnancy, TestoChecker’s G2 Fertility Hormone Test Kit is a better option. It includes relevant advice, charts and instructions, and is the same cost.
For a more detailed mapping of all three phases of ovulation (full cycle), view the Full Female Cycle (28 Day) Hormone Profile. The test is large and more expensive but when interpreted correctly, the results from it can provide valuable insight. Particularly beneficial when investigating:
- Irregular periods
- Polycystic ovaries
Now to this test:
The Female Active Hormone Test
..has a number of applications. Let’s take a look at the most common uses we see here at TestoChecker®.
Acne. The Female Active Hormone Test is suitable for investigating the cause of facial and body acne in young adults. Acne can be an indication of, or caused by androgen hormone imbalance, which can be identified and discussed with your doctor, treated, and possibly corrected.
The Female Active Hormone Test is also be used for investigating Menstrual Cycle Irregularity. DHEAs and testosterone are types of androgens, which if higher than normal can disrupt fertility hormone balance and suppress ovulation.
What does Low Estrogen in young Women mean?
Low Estrogen Levels in young Women may be caused by eating disorders or over-exercise, and can disrupt or stop menstruation. Identifying estradiol (E2) irregularity can be a catalyst for changes and possibly a better outcome. Your family doctor or other suitably qualified practitioner can play an important role, and sharing findings with ‘them’ is always advised.
Polycystic ovary syndrome hormone tracking
Monitoring hormone levels for those experiencing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is also made simple with this test kit. One of the major hallmarks of polycystic ovary syndrome [PCOS] is elevated androgens (including testosterone and DHEAs).
It’s important to note that the test is not intended for use as a diagnostic test for PCOS, and discussing any irregular findings with a GP or specialist is strongly advised.
Now to the value of the test, the results…
Where is the Female Active Hormone test Analysed?
The Female Active Hormone Test is analysed by Australian, industry accredited laboratories (identified in the test description), which have over 2 decades of experience testing saliva. [The labs were selected after diligent research was undertaken, and have at all times demonstrated good clinical laboratory practice.]
The value of The Female Active Hormone Test is in the results, and they are not only detailed but informative. Test results include estradiol / progesterone hormone Ratios which can be very useful… and there is plenty more.
What do Saliva Hormone Test Results look like?
The first thing you’ll see is the coloured and coded Graph highlighting individual hormone levels.
Below that you will find;
- Summaries by hormone (Laboratory)
- Indications (Laboratory)
- Interpretation instruction
- Benchmark Tables / Reference Ranges
And they also include tables for;
- All stages of the menstrual cycle
- On and off Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
- Pre and Post menopausal
- Post menopausal using HRT
Test results even include benchmark comparison for the various hormone replacement treatment types;
Knowing if the symptoms we experience are hormone related is a first step to treatment in the event it is required. It is not a solution in itself but a stepping stone to discovery. Test kits are sent same day by Express Post should the order be made prior to 5PM east coast time.
I’d like to mention again that if you’re in pain or concerned about your health, see your local doctor ASAP. Self diagnosis comes with risk you don’t need.
That’s all from me. Thanks for your time, and take care!
