What’s it used for?
The Women’s Expanded Hormone Panel maybe be used to assess the levels of certain hormones. The hormones in this package will asses Free and Total Testosterone, DHEA-S and Total Estrogen levels. Hormone levels start to decline over time and may include symptoms such as hot flashes, irregular menstrual cycles/painful or heaving bleeding, low energy, low sex drive, weight gain, water retention, insomnia, decreased muscle strength as well as cognitive decline.
Women who have a 28-day cycle, blood should be drawn on day 21 (day 1 is the day that bleeding begins). For longer or shorter cycles, count 8 days back from the day your next menstruation would start.
Women who no longer have a menstruation cycle, blood can be drawn any day of the month.
