WHAT DO WE TEST FOR?
LH and FSH are hormones produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. These hormones are responsible for ensuring the normal function of the ovaries and the menstrual cycle.
Oestradiol is the main female sex hormone.
Note: a recent study has shown that finger-prick blood collection can result in approximately 20% lower oestradiol results than blood collected by venous full blood draw. For more information refer to our Terms and Conditions.
Prolactin is a hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain and plays a role in reproductive health.
Testosterone is the main male sex hormone, but levels are also important in women.
Sex-hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) is a key protein that binds sex hormones as they circulate in the blood. The SHBG level provides important information to help calculate the levels of hormones that are biologically active and available for use.
Free Androgen Index (FAI) is a marker of how much “active” testosterone is circulating in your body.
