This test is a first morning saliva test that measures the sex hormones (estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA), and cortisol. Women of any age can be affected by hormone issues and may experience: uanormal menstrual cycles, infertility, premenstrual syndrome, mood swings, anxiety, painful periods, debilitating sleep disturbances, night sweats, hot flashes, accelerated bone loss and many other symptoms related to hormone changes. The Female Panel helps healthcare professionals sort out the specifics of the hormone imbalance. This test sample is provided at home and then put into any local mailbox using the pre-paid mailer package. This test is more cost effective and convenient, but it is limited regarding the amount of information we get about the hormones.
