Female Hormone Testing


Hormonal balance is the key to optimal health. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman´ s overall health affecting a variety of conditions including menstrual cycles, sleep patterns, menopause, infertility PCOS, PMS, breast cancer and endometriosis.

Hormones are tremendously complex and during the pre-menopausal years, imbalanced hormones can pose challenges with mood stabilisation, conception and regulation of your menstrual cycle. The Female Hormone Profile provides valuable information on an individual’s hormonal status and the potential impact this may have on physical and emotional health.

Hormone-related symptoms can occur from the age of when a menstrual cycle commences. Generally, hormonal issues is usually not a clear-cut case of one hormone level being abnormal, or even one hormone system. In fact, because of the role that hormones play as chemical messengers to wake up the genome in specific target tissues throughout the body, it makes sense that all hormone systems work in concert with each other to maintain a state of balance.
