Product Summary

Measure 8 key hormones and find out if you have a hormone imbalance that could be affecting your fertility, mood, weight and energy levels with our convenient Female Hormone home test.

  • Sample type: Home sample collection - Finger prick method. Watch the instructional video here.
  • Results: in 2-3 working days from receipt of sample at lab.

Why Get Tested?

Female hormones support many bodily functions including fertility, metabolism, mood and even sleep. A change to your period, weight gain, acne, hair loss, low energy levels, anxiety/depression or muscle weakness can all be signs of a hormone imbalance.

Our convenient home test will help you to identify if a hormone imbalance could be the cause of your symptoms.

It is important to note that the contraceptive pill may affect your results. If you stop taking the pill, we suggest waiting until your periods have resumed their normal cycle before taking this test. Make sure that you take an alternative form of contraception if you are not planning to become pregnant.

What is tested for in this kit?

  • Oestradiol
  • Progesterone
  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone
  • Luteinising Hormone
  • Prolactin
  • Testosterone
  • Sex Hormone Binding Globulin
  • Free Androgen Index

What is Oestradiol?

Oestradiol is the main form of oestrogen in the body. Oestradiol is essential for ovulation, conception and pregnancy, measuring your oestradiol levels can provide insight into ovarian function. Levels decrease significantly during menopause. If levels are too high it could indicate PCOS or endometriosis. Oestradiol can also protect against bone loss and aid in regulating cholesterol levels.

What is Progesterone?

Progesterone plays an important role in preparing your body for pregnancy after ovulation. Levels increase when you ovulate, measuring your progesterone levels at a particular time in your cycle can therefore indicate if you have ovulated and releasing healthy eggs.

What is Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH)?

FSH stimulates the production of oestradiol and promotes the development of ovarian follicles. FSH levels peak just before ovulation, with levels lower during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle to prevent the development of new follicles. Due to the fluctuation of FSH levels during the menstrual cycle, its is recommend levels are measured within the first 4 days of the cycle. A common reason for increased levels of FSH is the menopause.

What is Luteinising Hormone (LH)?

LH plays an important role in reproductive health. LH levels peak in the middle of the menstrual cycle triggering ovulation. Measurement alongside other hormones at the beginning of the cycle can help to identify a hormone imbalance that could be affecting ovulation.

What is Prolactin?

Prolactin plays a role in the menstrual cycle and also stimulates milk production during breastfeeding. Too much prolactin can impact the production of other hormones including FSH and LH and as such is important for reproductive health

What is Testosterone?

Measuring your testosterone levels may help to determine the cause of symptoms such as oily skin, excess body hair and irregular periods. High levels are associated with conditions like PCOS.

What is Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG)?

SHBG helps to regulate testosterone and oestrogen levels.

What is Free Androgen Index?

Measurement of free androgen index is recommended for suspected hyperandrogenism in females.
