About Female hormone check

What is the female hormone check?

Hormone balance is important for the health of women of all ages. The female hormone check is a comprehensive test to look for hormonal imbalances which may affect metabolism and reproduction, as well as indicate the start of the menopause. Hormones are chemical messengers used by the body to respond to internal and external influences. The activity of hormones must be finely regulated to produce the desired physiological effect.

This regulation is typically coordinated by complex interactions between several different hormones. Both excessive production and a deficiency in the production of hormones can cause ill health. Symptoms of hormonal imbalances include heavy or missed periods, weight gain, fatigue, thinning hair, depression and irritability. Polycystic ovary syndrome (POCS) is a common condition resulting from a hormonal imbalance which affects ovary function. Causes of hormonal imbalances include an underactive or overactive thyroid (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency and stress.

Why take the test?

This test measures the levels of hormones associated with thyroid function, reproduction and the menopause and can be used to help confirm hormonal imbalances.
