BLOOD TESTS – Fertility hormones

We offer a single, comprehensive hormone blood test designed to measure key hormones in a woman’s body related to fertility, menopause, and menstrual issues. 

What We Measure

Our comprehensive hormone blood test evaluates the following key hormones:

  • Oestradiol (E2): is a form of Oestrogen vital for reproductive health, menstrual cycle regulation, and menopausal symptom management. Levels of oestradiol vary throughout a woman’s life, being highest during the reproductive years and dropping significantly after menopause.
  • Luteinising Hormone (LH):  is a hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland in the brain. It plays a vital role in sexual development and functioning for both men and women.
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH): Crucial for understanding fertility issues and managing menopause. FSH is a gonadotropin, a type of hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which plays an essential role in the reproductive systems of both men and women.
  • Prolactin: is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays a crucial role in lactation and reproductive function. High levels can interfere with fertility and menstrual cycles.
