Is this for me?
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.
Some of the reasons this test may be beneficial for you are:
- If you are irregular in your menstrual cycles
- If you have received a medical treatment that may affect fertility
- If you are considering putting parenthood on hold for a few years
- If you are exploring egg freezing as an option
- If you are thinking about conceiving soon
Your test will measure your free testosterone, cortisol and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels.
Your test results include your levels of TSH, cortisol, free testosterone, and whether they are low, normal, or high as compared to established normal ranges. By measuring your levels of each hormone, you may better understand what you may be experiencing with unexpected changes to your body composition, weight, and energy levels.
Cortisol: Cortisol is produced in the adrenal glands and is released in response to acute stressors, like illness, exercise, and emotional stressors. Cortisol is often called your body’s “stress hormone”. Cortisol has many roles in the body though, including helping control blood sugar levels and regulating energy metabolism. In most healthy people, cortisol levels peak in the morning and are lowest in the middle of the night.
Free Testosterone: Testosterone is primarily produced by the testes in men and by the ovaries in women, with a small amount produced by the adrenal glands. Free testosterone is not attached to proteins, whereas total testosterone includes free testosterone and testosterone that is bound to the proteins albumin and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) in the blood. Testosterone is important for bone density, libido, body fat distribution, and supporting muscle mass in both men and women.
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone: 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 diseases and conditions.
Experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, increased body fat, weight changes, or decreased muscle mass?
Your metabolism influences your energy levels, weight, body composition, and even mood. If key hormones that help your body maintain a normal metabolism are not within range, it may unexpectedly affect your weight and energy. Unexpected weight gain means the change you're experiencing in your weight would likely not be associated with your current diet or changes in exercise frequency or consistency.
