Fertility awareness is a fundamental right for every woman; today, more than ever, you have access to the information you need to know your body from the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Knowing Labs fertility tests can help you physically and mentally prepare for a new season in your life, whether you are considering conceiving soon or want to plan for the future.
This test may be beneficial for you if:
* Your menstrual cycles are irregular.
* You are considering putting parenthood on hold.
* You are exploring egg freezing as an option.
* You are thinking about conceiving soon.
* You have received a medical treatment that may affect fertility.
This Panel measures 11 hormones: Estradiol, Progesterone, Cortisol, Free Testosterone, Total Testosterone, Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, Follicle Stimulating Hormone, Luteinizing Hormone, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, Prolactin, and Beta-HCG.
The most comprehensive Female Fertility Panel available, this panel was developed to measure the concentrations of the hormones that determine whether your reproductive system is functioning optimally to provide you with relevant information to help you make the decisions that support your plans.
Estradiol: (E2) is a form of the female sex hormone estrogen. Estradiol plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy reproductive system. Produced by the ovaries, estradiol levels are highest during a woman's reproductive years.
Progesterone: This is a reproductive hormone involved in the development and maintenance of the reproductive organs, among other bodily functions. Abnormal levels of progesterone in women can cause mood changes, anxiety, and irregular menstruation.
Cortisol: Also known as the stress hormone, it plays an important role in the body’s response to stress, among other things. For instance, cortisol also has anti-inflammatory properties and plays a role in metabolism, regulating blood sugar and blood pressure, and sleep/wake cycles. Cortisol affects all parts of the body.
Free Testosterone: Is primarily produced by the ovaries in women, with a small amount produced by the adrenal glands. Testosterone is important for bone density, libido, body fat distribution, and supporting muscle mass in both men and women. Testosterone also plays a role in reproductive health.
Testosterone Total: Testosterone is a growth hormone produced by the adrenal cortex. It is important for the maintenance of bone and muscle mass in women; however, high testosterone in women can lead to symptoms including acne, weight gain, and infertility.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin: (SHBG) SHBG levels help assess fertility issues, weight gain, decreased sex drive, acne, osteoporosis, and significant mood/eating disorders. High levels of SHBG mean that fewer sex hormones get released to organ tissues that need them.
Follicle Stimulating Hormone: (FSH) controls the development of follicles, the source of estrogen and progesterone; FHS thus regulates the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries.
Luteinizing Hormone: (LH) is the hormone responsible for ovulation. A normal level of LH in the second half of the menstrual cycle tells us there are no major hormonal imbalances interfering with ovarian function.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: (TSH) is the hormone responsible for controlling the production of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, by the thyroid gland. The hormone TSH is considered the most sensitive marker for screening for thyroid conditions; low levels of the thyroid hormone can interfere with the ovulation process.
Prolactin: (PRL) Symptoms of increased PRL levels may include unwanted milk production/leakage, irregular menstrual cycle, and menopausal symptoms in women. High prolactin also interferes with the normal production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, causing fertility issues and low libido.
Beta Human Chorionic Gonadotropin: (BHCG) hCG is a pregnancy hormone; therefore, healthy levels are important. The treatment of this hormone can be used to increase fertility in some women. BHCG levels, along with other hormones and signs/symptoms, help assess fertility issues.
