Sex Hormone Profile

FASTING BLOOD TEST

About the Sex Hormone Profile

This test examines the levels of main female and male hormones. It is important because as we age (for women in particular) there is a natural decline in testosterone and progesterone levels which creates a relative excess of estrogen. This is a natural process however, if something isn’t working as it should, this natural decline can spin out of control and generate further, unintended, consequences in other areas of the body. This test is also useful to assess issues with libido, hair growth, fertility, PMT, Endometriosis, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and Menopause in women.
