balanced woman TEST
Understand your hormones and health
As a woman, your body is controlled by your monthly cycle and hormones. However, your hormones are in turn affected by a variety of factors. Check to see if your circulating hormone levels and other essential parameters in your blood stream are in the normal range. Learn if an imbalance could be affecting your fertility, periods, skin, mood, or weight.

WHAT CAN the balanced woman TEST TELL YOU?
This test can help you understand if having acne, irregular periods, low energy and weight gain is because of an imbalance. It can also help you understand why you might be having trouble getting pregnant. It will measure other parameters such as your thyroid function which is essential for the harmony of hormones and other bodily functions such as metabolism and digestion.
Based on your results, you’ll get personalised help and advice from a UK qualified doctor.
If you’re on any kind of hormonal contraception or medication your results will not reflect your basal hormone levels. If you’re pregnant, we will recommend another test for you.

Examples of parameters tested
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) helps your ovaries to function normally and plays a key role in egg production and ovulation. If your FSH levels are imbalanced you might have trouble getting pregnant. Or high FSH levels can be a sign that you’re menopausal.
The thyroid is an extremely important gland that produces hormones that regulate major bodily functions such as metabolism, cardiovascular health and growth. An underactive or overactive thyroid can compromise on menstruation irregularity, fertility, energy levels and metabolism. This test is meant to measure a few parameters that will enable you to understand if your thyroid is functioning normally.
Luteinising Hormone (LH) helps the in the development of the corpus luteum, a temporary structure in the ovaries which produces progesterone, triggering ovulation. The levels of LH surge when a woman ovulating. High levels of LH outside of the middle of the cycle can indicate premature menopause, PCOS or other disorders. Low levels of LH result in amenorrhea, or absent periods, which may be due to a number of conditions including poor diet.
As a major male sex hormone, most women don’t know that it is normal to have some testosterone as well! As an androgen, testosterone is produced naturally in the ovaries and contributes to vaginal cellular turnover and sexual desire. It has also been shown to have a protective role in cardiovascular health. Testosterone can also be converted to oestadiol, which is the major female sex hormone. Women with higher or lower than normal androgen levels may have problems conceiving. Low levels can also lead to reduced energy levels, muscle mass and sex drive.
Oestradiol is the most active, abundant and pleiotropic of all 4 human oestrogens during reproductive years. It is responsible for the development of female sexual characteristics such as the breasts and fat pattern growth around the hips, and induces ovulation indirectly via its ability to trigger a surge in LH. In the luteal phase (second phase of your cycle), E2, in conjunction with progesterone, prepares the body for implantation. During pregnancy, the levels of E2 increases due to placental production of the hormone. The levels of E2 decrease with age.
Although it is a vitamin, Vitamin D is also a steroid with hormone-like activity. The main source of Vit D is your skin, after exposure to the sun (UVB), but it can also come from dietary sources such as oily fish, mushrooms and eggs. The darker your skin is, the less vitamin D it produces. This vitamin is important for many functions including bone health, immunity, and cancer. More recently, it has been implicated in the maintenance of health fertility and pregnancy.
