Hormone Check Female

About this test

Hormones are chemical messengers which are involved in all of the body's functions. Women's sex hormones control the reproductive system and any imbalance can affect fertility and the menstrual cycle.

The Hormone Check Female includes tests for Luteinising Hormone (LH), which controls the reproductive system, Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), which helps control egg production and the menstrual cycle, oestradiol, which is involved in ovarian function, and prolactin which can determine whether a woman is menstruating.

Who is this test for?

This test is for women looking to monitor specific hormones that may impact their fertility, menstrual cycle and menopause.

Tests Included

Hormones

Follicle Stimulating Hormone is produced in the pituitary gland and is important for women in the production of eggs by the ovaries and for men in the production of sperm. Levels of FSH rise in women as egg production declines, therefore raised FSH often coincides with the onset of the menopause and is a measure of ovarian reserve.

Elevated FSH in women indicates reduced egg supply whereas low levels can signal that you are not ovulating or are pregnant.

Levels of FSH in men rise with age, but can also indicate testicular damage and reduced sperm production. Low levels of FSH are detected when men are not producing sperm.

Luteinising Hormone (LH) is produced by the pituitary gland and is important for male and female fertility. In women it governs the menstrual cycle, peaking before ovulation. In men it stimulates the production of testosterone. 

Raised LH in women can signal that you are not ovulating, that you are menopausal or that your hormones are not in balance (as with polycystic ovaries).

Raised LH in men can signal that the testes are not producing enough testosterone. 

Oestradiol is a female steroid hormone which is produced in the ovaries of women and to a much lesser extent in the testes of men. It is responsible for the female reproductive system as well as the growth of breast tissue and bone thickness. Oestradiol levels decline with age, culminating in the menopause when the ovaries stop producing eggs.

Raised oestradiol in women can cause acne, constipation, loss of sex drive and depression as well as raising the risk of uterine and breast cancer. 

Oestradiol can also be raised in men due to excess fat (which produces oestradiol) or in relation to testosterone levels which have declined with age. Raised oestradiol in men can cause the growth of breast tissue, the loss of libido and infertility.

Low levels of oestradiol in women can lead to osteoporosis, problems with the menstrual cycle and fertility as well as fatigue and depression. 

Prolactin is a hormone which is produced in the pituitary gland and plays a role in reproductive health. Its primary purpose is to stimulate milk production after childbirth, and in pregnant and breastfeeding women prolactin levels can soar. 

Raised levels in a woman who isn't pregnant or breastfeeding can signal fertility problems as well as irregular periods.

Raised levels in men can cause reduced sex drive, lack of energy, erectile disfunction and fertility problems.
