Rhythm Testing for Sex Hormone: Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone
Our sex hormones are intimately linked with what we are putting into our bodies every day. The temporary fix in libido can usually be fixed with a little blue pill – however, like all things temporary, this shouldn’t be a permanent fix. There might be an underlying issue with your hormones that can be identified with our Rhythm panel testing!
The Rhythm profile is a hormonal test indicated for both premenopausal and perimenopausal women not currently supplementing with hormones. An analysis of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone can reveal ovulatory function and trends in hormone production. Hormonal imbalances such as unopposed estrogen, high follicular progesterone, anovulation and luteal phase defects are easily identified. This hormone test is especially useful in treatment of patients with chronic gynecologic disorders.
What We Test For
The Rhythm™ hormone test is a comprehensive assessment of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone spanning a full 28 days. Hormone imbalances revealed in this hormone test profile can help illuminate root causes of disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities. This hormonal test analyzes 11 saliva samples of a 28–day period.
Hormonal balance is the key. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman’s overall health affecting:
Chronic hormonal imbalances are implicated in disorders such as:
Polycystic Ovary Disease
Saliva hormone testing provides a thorough analysis of estradiol and progesterone over a full 28 day cycle. Testosterone is measured once from the 28th day specimen. By utilizing 11 saliva samples for analysis, the relationship and balance of these essential hormones are analyzed more precisely through time. The levels of estradiol and progesterone, as well as the ratio between the two, are clearly graphed for easy reference and patient education.
