In women, hormones such as Estrogen and Progesterone, begin to decline around age 30. These decreasing hormone levels signal the beginning phases of menopause. There are many other factors which can also affect your hormone levels, such as poor diet and lack of exercise.
The Female EvaluatoR can be used in the investigation of matters such as:
- Functional Infertility
- Ovulation Problems
- Hot Flashes
- Recurring Headaches
- Libido Problems
- Sexual Differentiation Problems
- Estrogen - Progesterone Imbalances
This panel places emphasis on testing two key hormones that are crucial components of a women’s health, Estradiol and Progesterone. They are each tested eleven times so you can have insight as to how the body is stimulating and regulating important bodily functions, seeing how many organs of the human body have receptors for those hormones that are prominent in skin, bone, breast tissue, and blood vessels.
Consult your results with your physician to understand if there is a hormonal imbalance present in your body, and to learn what steps to take to balance those hormones.
Estradiol - is produced by the ovaries and known as the "active" estrogen—the one that can achieve the fullest range of estrogen effects because it goes out there in our tissues and sockets into estrogen receptors and causes estrogen effects
- Progesterone- a steroid hormone released by the corpus luteum that stimulates the uterus to prepare for pregnancy. It helps determine the cause of infertility, it tracks ovulation, help diagnose a failing pregnancy, monitors the health of a pregnancy, and can help diagnose the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding
DHEA-Sulfate - helps evaluate adrenal gland function. Used to detect adrenal tumors or cancers
Testosterone - a hormone (commonly produced in males, but is also in females in small amounts) that affects sexual features and development. In men, it is made in large amounts by the testicles. In both men and women, testosterone is made in small amounts by the adrenal glands, and in women, by the ovaries
