Hormone level checks for women

Hormonal changes are most common in women around the time of menopause (which typically occurs sometime between the late 40s and early 50s, although can vary).
During menopause, the ovaries stop producing eggs. This also marks the end of monthly periods, and of fertility (the ability to have a child naturally).

Understanding Menopause Symptoms

The two main hormones that control a woman’s menstrual cycle are oestrogen and progesterone. With menopause, these hormone levels drastically change, causing often dramatic physical and emotional changes. Symptoms usually associated with menopause, and in particular with lower levels of oestrogen, include:

  • Night sweats
  • Hot flushes
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Lower than usual sex drive (libido)
  • Urinary leaking when coughing or sneezing (“stress incontinence”)
  • Reduced bone density, which can lead to fractures and osteoporosis

Some of these symptoms will resolve on their own within a few years; others (such as vaginal dryness) can worsen and may require treatment.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Although the loss of oestrogen is responsible for most of the symptoms associated with menopause, it can be dangerous to supplement oestrogen on its own (increasing the risk of uterine or endometrial cancer), and so a synthetic form of progesterone, called progestin, is usually used in combination with oestrogen. This is called hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, and it can be taken as tablets, patches, implants, or in gel form.

Procedure

The doctor will provide you with all the necessary information, depending on the condition. If this test hasn’t been requested by a doctor, please, book a consultation with one of our GPs to ensure proper management and follow up.

During the test

This test is a simple blood test. A needle is inserted into a vein, usually on the inner arm near the elbow, and a small amount of blood is drawn. You may feel a pricking or scratching sensation.

These results should be interpreted by the requesting doctor. If the test was requested by one of our doctors, they will give you a call explaining the results and further management. If the test was requested by a different clinic we will email you the results to the email address you provided at registration.
