Female Hormone Blood Test: Reasons Behind Hormonal Changes in the Body

Hormonal imbalances can have profound effects on a woman's health, manifesting in symptoms like irregular periods, weight fluctuations, and even fertility issues. For many women, these symptoms are puzzling and distressing, making the journey to a diagnosis often challenging.

One Day Tests recognises the critical role of accurate hormonal assessment for women. Our Female Hormone Blood Test, easily accessible without a GP referral, is specifically designed to unravel the complexities associated with conditions such as PCOS. This test measures key hormones that are often imbalanced in PCOS, such as testosterone levels, LH/FSH ratios and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG).

By opting for this precise and comprehensive test, you can uncover vital information about your hormonal health, paving the way for a clearer understanding of your symptoms.

PCOS and Female Hormones

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is intricately linked to imbalances in female hormones, which play a pivotal role in its onset and progression. This hormonal disorder, prevalent among women of reproductive age, significantly impacts the endocrine system, leading to various symptoms and health complications.

Hormonal Imbalance in PCOS

Women with PCOS often experience irregular or absent menstrual cycles. This irregularity is due to disrupted levels of hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone, Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), and Luteinising Hormone (LH). The imbalance hinders the development and release of eggs from the ovaries, a condition known as anovulation.

Many women with PCOS also exhibit insulin resistance, leading to higher insulin levels. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Elevated insulin can exacerbate the production of androgens, worsening PCOS symptoms.

Role of Hormone Testing in PCOS

Hormonal testing, such as the Female Hormone Blood Test, is crucial for identifying what health issues could be responsible for the hormonal changes in the body. By measuring levels of key hormones like oestrogen, progesterone, LH, FSH, and testosterone, this test helps in identifying the hormonal imbalances characteristic of PCOS. Understanding these levels is vital for tailoring treatment strategies, which may include lifestyle changes, medication, and fertility treatments, to manage PCOS effectively.
