Estradiol is the main estrogen in women and is produced by the ovaries. It is one of the main sex hormones responsible for ovulation. After menopause, levels of estradiol decline significantly. Estradiol is also responsible for the health and normal function of other sexual organs, such as the breast, vagina, and uterus.
By examining a few drops of blood and saliva – each collected at different points during your cycle using a simple test kit – we measure a variety of hormones known to be instrumental in women’s health.
These hormones include:
- Estradiol (measured on Day 19)
- Progesterone (measured on Day 19)
- LH (measured on Day 3)
- FSH (measured on Day 3)
- DHEAS (measured on Day 19)
- Testosterone (measured on Day 19)
- Cortisol (at four times throughout Day 19)
- TSH (measured on Day 19)
- Free T3 (measured on Day 19)
- Free T4 (measured on Day 19)
- TPO antibodies (measured on Day 19)
As you understand your overall hormonal balance in a more accurate way, you’ll be more informed in your planning for the future, no matter if you are planning a family or becoming an empty nester.
A woman’s hormones are constantly changing and the slightest imbalance can change how you feel day to day. A hormonal imbalance can affect the menstrual cycle, mood, metabolism, libido, and sleep. Testing hormones is a critical step in understanding a woman’s reproductive and general health. Knowing if you have a hormonal imbalance is the first step to understanding the changes you may be experiencing in your body.
