What is a Female Hormone Profile?
Female Hormone profile
Female hormones are a group of steroids that are responsible for the development and function of reproductive organs and the formation of secondary sex characteristics in women. Along with progesterone, they help regulate the menstrual cycle, are involved in the growth of breasts and the uterus, and help maintain a healthy pregnancy. Though considered the main sex hormones for women, they are also found in men and play a role in bone metabolism and growth in both sexes.
This profile measures the amount of the four main female hormones in the blood.

Are you entering menopause?
What is menopause?
Menopause is when you have stopped having periods for a year due to a drop in the levels of hormones oestrogen and progesterone. This means you can no longer get naturally pregnant. This transition usually happens between 45 and 55, however it can sometimes happen before 40, known as early menopause. Menopausal symptoms can begin up to five years before periods stop.
Is this test for you?
You may want to do a blood test to see if your hormones indicate that you are entering menopause, especially if you are below 45 and are worried about early menopause. You may also want for reassurance that the symptoms you are experiencing including hot flushes, discomfort during sex, depression or anxiety and problems with memory and concentration, are due to the menopause and not due to another serious condition.
Looking for an andropause test?
Andropause or male menopause describes a drop in testosterone levels that many men experience as they get older. Testosterone levels gradually decline with age to the tune of about 1 per cent a year after the age of 30 on average. Male menopause can cause physical, sexual and psychological problems.
This profile measures the amount of the five main male hormones in the blood including Free Androgen Index – is a ratio used to determine abnormal androgen status.
