Test measures
With the Women's Health Test we analyze:
  • Cortisol
  • Estradiol (E2)
  • LH
  • FSH
  • Total Cholesterol
  • HbA1c
  • TSH
Cortisol

Cortisol, a vital stress hormone produced in the adrenal cortex, prepares the body for action by releasing energy reserves. It plays essential roles in metabolism and immune functions, aiding in inflammation control and overall health.

Cortisol levels increase during various stressors, whether positive or negative, but can also rise due to stress, medications, infections, fasting, inflammation, or certain medical conditions, leading to symptoms like skin issues, hair problems, abdominal fat, insomnia, weakened immunity, and burnout.

Both high and low cortisol levels can disrupt well-being. Low levels impact energy, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health, immunity, and brain function, potentially causing primary adrenal insufficiency with symptoms like fatigue, dizziness, skin conditions, hair loss, weight loss, and appetite loss. Extremely low cortisol can trigger a life-threatening Addisonian crisis, particularly in individuals with non-functioning adrenal glands under intense stress, requiring immediate medical attention.

Estradiol (E2)

Estradiol (E2), the most potent estrogen in the estrogen hormone family, is a critical female fertility hormone. It primarily influences follicle maturation and supports the growth of reproductive structures in females. The level of estrogen produced varies with the menstrual cycle, with lower baseline estradiol levels around day three.

Estradiol alone doesn’t assess ovarian reserve but complements FSH level evaluation. Normal estradiol and FSH suggest healthy ovarian reserve, indicating good egg quality and quantity, as well as age-related fertility potential. Elevated estradiol, combined with normal or high serum FSH, may signal reduced ovarian reserve, potentially impacting a woman’s ability to conceive.

Abnormally high estradiol levels in non-pregnant women could indicate underlying health issues, such as endometriosis or irregular ovulation. Conversely, extremely low or undetectable estradiol levels may lead to symptoms like vaginal dryness, headaches, reduced libido, and decreased bone density.

LH

Luteinizing Hormone (LH), produced by the pituitary gland, plays a crucial role in the reproductive systems of both men and women, influencing puberty, menstruation, and fertility. LH levels fluctuate throughout a woman’s life and menstrual cycle, peaking between the 12th and 14th day to trigger ovulation.

A normal LH level typically indicates sufficient estradiol and progesterone, with ovaries functioning without restriction. However, increased FSH levels alongside normal LH can occur during menopause, suggesting residual ovarian function.

Slightly elevated LH, along with high FSH, may signify diminished ovarian reserve due to aging, potentially reducing the chances of a successful pregnancy. Persistently high LH levels during non-ovulatory times can indicate menopause. During menopause, LH levels can increase significantly, but they may also fluctuate. After menopause, LH levels remain slightly elevated.

FSH

FSH, a hormone involved in the reproductive system of both men and women, plays a crucial role. In women, it promotes the growth and maturation of ovarian follicles, which produce hormones like estrogens and progesterone for a regular menstrual cycle.

Normal FSH levels, within the context of low day 3 estradiol levels, indicate a healthy ovarian reserve, implying good egg quality and quantity, as well as normal age-related fertility potential. Conversely, slightly elevated FSH levels, combined with high LH levels, suggest declining ovarian reserve due to aging, potentially lowering the chances of a successful pregnancy.

In some cases, elevated FSH levels alongside high estradiol can indicate non-fertility-affecting functional cysts, especially in premenopausal women. Mildly increased FSH levels can also result from stress or being underweight.

Total Cholesterol

Cholesterol, a vital substance for the body, is a fat-like compound crucial for normal functioning. It circulates in the blood within lipoprotein complexes like HDL and LDL. Total cholesterol measures all cholesterol components in the blood.

Regularly monitoring cholesterol levels is recommended if you have a family history of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, are overweight, or smoke. Elevated cholesterol levels, while often symptomless, can increase the risk of narrowed blood vessels and heart disease. Thus, assessing cholesterol levels helps evaluate your cardiovascular disease risk.

HbA1c

Hemoglobin (Hb), found in red blood cells, carries oxygen throughout the body. Glucose can permanently bind to hemoglobin, forming glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), reflecting average blood glucose levels over the past six to eight weeks, rather than daily fluctuations.

Slightly elevated HbA1c indicates a higher risk of future diabetes (prediabetes), while high levels suggest poor blood glucose control, often without noticeable symptoms initially. Prolonged high sugar levels may lead to fatigue, increased thirst, frequent urination, and slow wound healing.

To lower HbA1c, dietary changes, exercise, or medications can help. Consulting with a doctor or nutritionist is essential for a personalized treatment plan. The clinical significance of low HbA1c values is not entirely clear, but recent studies suggest a possible link to increased all-cause mortality risk among those without diabetes if it falls below a certain threshold.

TSH

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), produced by the pituitary gland, regulates thyroid hormone production. TSH levels adapt to maintain thyroid hormone stability: decreasing with higher fT4 and fT3 levels and increasing with lower levels. TSH is a crucial marker for thyroid health, with normal levels indicating a well-functioning thyroid gland.

TSH plays a vital role in distinguishing primary hyperthyroidism from secondary hypothyroidism. Secondary hypothyroidism, linked to pituitary or hypothalamus disorders, typically shows low TSH, fT4, and fT3 levels. Primary hyperthyroidism, resulting from thyroid gland dysfunction, exhibits low TSH alongside elevated fT4 and/or fT3 levels. Low TSH with normal T4 and T3 levels is considered subclinical hyperthyroidism, an early, mild form of hyperthyroidism.

Conversely, TSH helps differentiate primary hypothyroidism (characterized by significantly elevated TSH and low fT4 and/or fT3) from secondary hyperthyroidism (resulting from pituitary or hypothalamus issues, with increased TSH and high fT4 and/or fT3).

Why should I consider taking the Women's Health Test?

Our Women's Health Test helps determine several key health markers, including estradiol, HbA1c, cholesterol, FSH, cortisol, TSH, and LH, to provide insights into various aspects of women's health. It can help you monitor important aspects of your health, such as fertility, hormonal balance, cardiovascular health, and more. The test may be particularly beneficial if you have specific health concerns or risk factors.

What is the role of estradiol in women's health?

Estradiol is a crucial female hormone that serves a multitude of functions in women's health. It regulates the menstrual cycle, supports fertility by aiding in egg development and ovulation, maintains reproductive structures, and contributes to bone and cardiovascular health. Estradiol also impacts brain function, mood, skin health, sexual function, and overall well-being. Monitoring estradiol levels is vital for assessing fertility, hormonal balance, and reproductive health throughout a woman's life.

What are LH and FSH, and how do they influence women's health?

Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) are hormones vital for women's health, primarily in regulating the menstrual cycle and fertility. LH triggers ovulation, while FSH promotes egg development and estrogen production. Imbalances in these hormones can signal reproductive and hormonal issues, making their monitoring crucial for assessing and managing women's reproductive health.

What is the role of TSH in women's health?

TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) is vital for women's health as it regulates the thyroid gland, impacting metabolism, menstrual cycles, fertility, pregnancy, and overall well-being. Imbalances in TSH can lead to thyroid disorders with far-reaching effects, making TSH monitoring crucial for women at various life stages.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
