Which items are measured in the Women's Hormone test?

Cortisol
Cortisol, often recognized as the primary stress hormone, is synthesized by the adrenal glands, which are triangular-shaped organs situated on top of each kidney. This vital hormone plays a crucial role in orchestrating a multitude of physiological processes within the human body. Among its diverse functions, cortisol is intricately involved in the regulation of metabolism, modulation of immune responses, and orchestration of the body's reaction to stressors.
DHEA
DHEA, produced by the adrenal glands, serves as a precursor to sex hormones. Its saliva measurement reflects active hormone levels, indicating the body's immediate DHEA production. This assessment helps in evaluating adrenal function, aging processes, and risk for chronic diseases.
Estrogen (estradiol)
Estrogen is a key female hormone, also present in men, crucial for developing and regulating the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics. In women, it manages the menstrual cycle and affects the reproductive tract, skin, and bones. In men, it's involved in libido, erectile function, and sperm production. Produced mainly in women's ovaries and in men's testes, estrogen levels fluctuate significantly during puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and menopause. Imbalances can lead to health issues like menstrual irregularities and mood swings.
Progesterone
Progesterone is a hormone crucial for the female reproductive system, mainly produced in the ovaries after ovulation. It prepares the uterus for potential pregnancy and maintains it if pregnancy occurs; if not, its levels drop to trigger menstruation. Progesterone also affects sexual desire, mood regulation, and bone strength. In pregnancy, it's produced by the placenta to support the pregnancy and prepare for breastfeeding. Men have lower levels of progesterone, involved in sperm development.
Estrogen/Progesterone ratio
The Estrogen/Progesterone ratio is a crucial indicator of hormonal balance in the body, particularly in women. Estrogen and progesterone are key hormones in female reproductive health, and their balance is essential for regular menstrual cycles, fertility, mood regulation, and overall well-being. An optimal ratio ensures a harmonious interplay between these hormones, while an imbalance can lead to various health issues. This ratio changes throughout the menstrual cycle and can be affected by factors like age, lifestyle, and health conditions.
Testosterone (free)
Testosterone is a hormone primarily associated with male sexual development and health, though it's also important in women. In men, it's produced mainly in the testes and is crucial for developing male reproductive tissues, promoting secondary sexual characteristics like muscle mass and body hair, and influencing libido and mood. Women produce testosterone in smaller amounts in the ovaries and adrenal glands, where it contributes to bone strength, ovarian function, and libido.

The Role of Hormones

Progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol each play unique roles in the body, affecting everything from brain function to stress response.

Who Should Take This Test?

This test is ideal if you want a comprehensive view of your hormones, including cortisol. Men should opt for the Men's Hormone Test.

Common Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalances

You might experience mood swings, depression, PMS, irregular periods, PCOS, infertility, menopausal symptoms, endometriosis, low libido, tender breasts, heavy periods, brain fog, impaired memory, weight gain, osteoporosis, vaginal dryness, headaches, and loose stools before and during menstruation, among other symptoms.

DHEA: A Versatile Hormone
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), or androstenolone, is a hormone that converts into both testosterone and estrogen. It's so potent that excessive doses classify as performance-enhancing drugs. DHEA peaks in our 20s and then gradually declines post-30. It boosts mental and physical performance, energy, memory, muscle mass, skin quality, body odor, bone mass, and puberty development, while keeping us young and healthy.

Cortisol: The Stress Hormone
Our test measures your morning cortisol levels. For diurnal cortisol measurement, we recommend the Cortisol Test, taken 7 times throughout the day. Cortisol, a stress hormone from the adrenal glands, boosts physical and mental performance in stressful situations. Both high and low levels can be problematic.

Estrogen: Key to Fertility
The Women's Hormone Test measures estradiol (E2) and its ratio to progesterone. Estradiol, the most crucial estrogen, is known as the fertility hormone in women.

Progesterone: More Than a Sex Hormone
Progesterone, primarily a female sex hormone, influences fertility and is a precursor to sex hormones testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol. It's vital for the central nervous system. Its levels fluctuate during the menstrual cycle and increase post-ovulation.

Testosterone in Women
Though often seen as a male hormone, women need testosterone for energy, libido, and muscle building. Women with PCOS often have higher testosterone levels.

How to Take the Women's Hormone Test

Perform this saliva test at home by taking two samples: one immediately after waking up and another 30 minutes later. If menstruating, collect samples a week post-ovulation, around day 21. In or post-menopause, timing is more flexible. After collection, send the samples to our lab. You will receive your results online.
