The basic female hormone panel tests a variety of markers, including thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones and general health markers associated with overall well-being and aging in women. 

Get the support you need for a hormonal imbalance while treating symptoms such as hot flashes, irregular/painful menstrual cycles, low energy, low sex drive, weight gain, water retention, cognitive decline, and more.

With access to an extensive list of tests, our patient care team can create a personalized hormone panel that meets your lifestyle needs.


This panel includes the following tests:

Total Testosterone Standard It checks the level of testosterone in your blood. Your doctor uses it to diagnose conditions caused by too much or too little testosterone. That’s a hormone produced in a man’s testes. During puberty, testosterone builds a man's muscles, deepens their voice, puts hair on their chest, and makes their penis grow. Throughout a man's life, the hormone also helps produce sperm and keep up their sex drive.
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG) This test measures the levels of SHBG in your blood. SHBG stands for sex hormone binding globulin. It's a protein made by the liver and attaches itself to sex hormones found in both men and women. These hormones are:
  • Testosterone, the main sex hormone in men
  • Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), another male sex hormone
  • Estradiol, a form of estrogen, the main sex hormone in women
A prolactin test measures the amount of this hormone in the bloodstream. In a woman who breastfeeds, the nursing baby's demand for milk actually controls the mother's supply. When a baby sucks at the breast, the woman's pituitary gland releases more prolactin into her blood, increasing her milk production.
A progesterone test is a blood test that measures a hormone called progesterone. Progesterone is important in pregnancy. It prepares your body to support a fertilized egg. If you're pregnant, progesterone also triggers your breasts to make milk.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) This test measures the level of luteinizing hormone (LH) in your blood. LH is made by your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. LH plays an important role in sexual development and functioning.
IGF-1 This test measures the amount of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1) in your blood. IGF-1 is a hormone that manages the effects of growth hormone (GH) in your body. Together, IGF-1 and GH promote normal growth of bones and tissues. GH levels in the blood fluctuate throughout the day depending on your diet and activity levels. But IGF-1 levels remain stable. So, an IGF-1 test is a useful way to find out if your body is making a normal amount of GH.
HbA1c is your average blood glucose (sugar) levels for the last two to three months. If you have diabetes, an ideal HbA1c level is 48mmol/mol (6.5%) or below. If you're at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, your target HbA1c level should be below 42mmol/mol (6%).
Free Testosterone Standard The free testosterone test may be used to evaluate infertility, erectile dysfunction, or osteoporosis in men, and to evaluate hirsutism, polycystic ovarian disease, and virilization in women. The test may also be used to monitor the efficacy of testosterone-lowering therapies in prostate cancer.
Free T4
Free T3
Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) FSH is made by your pituitary gland, a small gland located underneath the brain. FSH plays an important role in sexual development and functioning. In women, FSH helps control the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth of eggs in the ovaries.
Estradiol Standard An estradiol test measures the amount of the hormone estradiol in your blood. It’s also called an E2 test. Estradiol is a form of the hormone estrogen. It’s also called 17 beta-estradiol. The ovaries, breasts, and adrenal glands make estradiol. During pregnancy, the placenta also makes estradiol.
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA-S) This test measures the levels of DHEA sulfate (DHEAS) in your blood. DHEAS stands for dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate. DHEAS is a male sex hormone that is found in both men and women. DHEAS plays an important role in making the male sex hormone testosterone and the female sex hormone estrogen. It’s also involved in the development of male sexual characteristics at puberty.
Complete Blood Count with Differential (CBCD)
A complete blood count is a commonly performed blood test that is often included as part of a routine checkup. Complete blood counts can be used to help detect a variety of disorders including infections, anemia, diseases of the immune system, and blood cancers.

The comprehensive metabolic panel or CMP blood test is a group of 14 laboratory tests ordered to give information about the current status of your liver, kidneys, electrolytes, and acid/base balance. The CMP test gives the current status of your blood sugar and blood proteins also.

The Basic Female Hormone panel includes the following standard tests:

  • Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
  • Hemoglobin A1C
  • DHEA-Sulfate (DHEA-S)
