Female Hormone Panel

The Female Hormone Panel (FHP) can be used to detect and monitor:

  • Functional infertility
  • Influence of lifestyle (diet, exercise, etc.) on the cycle
  • Menstrual problems originating in the brain
  • Early pregnancy problems - spontaneous miscarriage
  • Cycle irregularities, following the use of birth control pills
  • Dysmenorrhea (i.e. painful and heavy periods)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Endometriosis and cystic ovarian disease
  • Early Osteoporosis

What We Test

The FHP is a simple, non invasive test. Eleven saliva samples are collected during specified time periods throughout the menstrual cycle.

For the first time in routine medical practice, FHP allows both patient and doctor to actually view the profile of Estrogen and Progesterone simultaneously. Diagnostic guesswork is minimized, and hormonal balance evaluation and customized treatment becomes a reality. In addition, we report the cycle average for Testosterone and DHEA.

There is an expanded panel called eFHP, which includes 5 FSH and LH measurements to see if brain control and stimulation of the ovaries is optimal.

Applications of the Female Hormone Panel

  • Detection of Luteal Phase Defect: There are at least three luteal phase defect patters which are characterized by a reduced output of Progesterone that leads to Estrogen dominance. This imbalance is usually associated with PMS, infertility, fibroids and other female hormonal problems and can be readily detected by our panels.

  • Hormonal Imbalance and PMS: Many women suffer from hormonal imbalance in the Estrogen to Progesterone ratio. Our panels can objectively evaluate the hormonal state with great accuracy which, in turn, provides specific insights for appropriate intervention or treatment to relieve hormonal imbalance and PMS related symptoms.
