The functioning of the female body is based on complex hormonal regulation. If this balance is upset, it can lead to pathological conditions. Bleeding disorders, infertility, increased hair growth, acne, hair loss and heatwaves can all indicate hormonal problems.
The first blood draw is on day 3 of the menstrual cycle and the second is on day 21. The first half of the cycle is the follicular phase and the period after ovulation is the luteal phase. At the first blood sampling (H1), we examine a complete line of hormones, when problems arising from the functioning of glands and organs that produce hormones can be revealed, so we get a general picture of hormone homeostasis and organ function.
Repeated female hormone testing (H2) in the second half of the cycle seeks to clarify whether hormonal processes are developing properly, whether the fertilized egg could be embedded in the uterus, whether there is corpus luteum insufficiency, or other problems.
In the course of laboratory test of female cycle-dependent hormones, the following items are tested: AMH, FSH, LH, testosterone, prolactin, oestradiol (day 3 of the cycle), and progesterone (day 21 of the cycle).
