DHEA

DHEA is a hormone that can be converted to both testosterone and estrogen and is such a powerful hormone that it is classified as an anabolic substance. Stress can reduce the levels of DHEA.

Normally, DHEA levels are at its highest when we are in our 20s and then decreases gradually over the years. DHEA is needed our performance, energy, sex drive, memory, muscle mass, skin, weight, bone mass and is said to delay aging.

Cortisol

This test analyzes your value of cortisol in the morning. If you want to measure diurnal cortisol, we recommend the Cortisol test which is collected 7 times throughout the day.

Cortisol is considered our “stress hormone” and is released when we are exposed to physical or mental stress. Cortisol is produced in the adrenal glands and helps you to perform better physically and mentally in the “acute stress situation”. Neither too high nor too low cortisol is good.

Estrogen

Women’s Hormone Test measures estradiol (E2) and the ratio between estradiol and progesterone. Estradiol is considered the most important of the estrogen hormones and is known as the woman’s fertility hormone.

Progesterone

Progesterone is primarily a female sex hormone that affects our fertility and ovulation. It is a precursor to the sex hormones testosterone, estrogen and cortisol and important for the central nervous system. Altered levels of progesterone can cause imbalances in other hormones and affect key functions in consciousness, cognition and mood. Progesterone levels vary during the menstrual cycle and increase after ovulation.

Testosterone

Testosterone is known as a male hormone, but women also need testosterone, even if it is in lower amounts than men. Testosterone is needed for our energy, sex drive and to build muscles, among other things. Excessive levels of testosterone occur in women with PCOS.

The function of hormones

Progesterone plays a role in the brain, collagen production, fertility, concentration, bone mass, sleep and more.
Estrogen plays a role in fertility, skin and hair, sleep and more.
Testosterone plays a role in energy, endurance, muscle strength, sex drive and more.
DHEA plays a role in metabolism, sex drive, memory, the immune system, the cardiovascular system, stress and more.
Cortisol plays a role in stress, well-being and more.

This test is suitable for you who want to get an overall picture of your hormones and measure your cortisol. If you are a man, you should instead choose the test Hormone Profile for Men.

How to collect Women’s Hormone Test

The test is a saliva test that is collected on two occasions during a day and is performed at home; you take the first saliva immediately when you wake up and the second saliva sample is taken 30 minutes after the first. The sample should be collected one week after ovulation if you are a menstruating woman. During normal menstruation, ovulation usually takes place around day 14 of the cycle and the test should then take place on day 21, which means that the test is taken between days 19-21 in the menstrual cycle. Of course, you can also take the test if you have reached or passed menopause (menopause and postmenopause).

The sample is then sent to the lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally.
