The female body is nothing if not complex! While we consider estrogen and progesterone to be the main female sex hormones, there is much more to consider when struggling to become pregnant or when trying to get the bottom of irregular cycles. In addition to these main hormones (and their ratios), this test also looks at testosterone, DHEA, a full range of thyroid hormones as well as those related to ovulation and egg implantation. Additionally, the stress hormone cortisol is included to ensure an in-depth assessment of your biggest (and most sensitive) health challenges.
When you're ready to start a family or facing concerns about your overall menstrual health, encountering challenges can add unnecessary stress to your journey. The good news is that there is a convenient at-home test that will provide and in-depth evaluation on a range of sex and related hormones so that you can feel confident and supported in the next steps, addressing potential imbalances at the root cause level.
A steroid hormone produced in your adrenal glands, affecting several aspects of your body, including regulating your body's response to stress.
Cortisol, the body's stress hormone, is made from precursors that include progesterone. If stress levels are high on an ongoing basis, progesterone levels may decrease, disrupting the balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body.
Additionally, cortisol can inhibit secretion of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), leading to partial suppression of thyroxine, the main hormone produced by the thyroid gland.
Test looks at a range of female hormones and their critical ratios, from estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and more.
Looking at the full range of thyroid hormones including; T3, T4, TSH and TPOab
