Fertility tests and profiles for women is a comprehensive set of laboratory tests that provide a foundation of knowledge regarding any hormonal imbalances and its relation to reproductive issues including infertility. Women who usually undergo such lab tests are those who experience abnormal menstrual cycles, abnormal or heavy vaginal bleeding, infertility, symptoms of menopause, or any other hormonal alterations, fatigue, moodiness, low sex drive, loss of muscle tone, and increased body fat.

 

Common fertility tests and profiles for women involve a blood test done by a qualified lab technician. The test includes:

 

  • Comprehensive Thyroid Testing Profile with TSH – often ordered together to help evaluate thyroid gland function and to help diagnose thyroid disorders.

 

  • Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody (TPO) Thyroid Blood Test – primarily ordered to help diagnose an autoimmune thyroid disease and to separate it from other forms of thyroiditis.

 

  • Progesterone Ovarian Function Blood test – helpful in determining the cause of infertility, track ovulation, help diagnose an ectopic or failing pregnancy, monitor the health of a pregnancy, and help diagnose the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding.

 

  • Testosterone (Free and Total) Hormone Test – can be used to diagnose decreased sex drive in men and women, as well as infertility in men and women.

 

  • DHEA-S Hormone Blood Test – DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and is a precursor for the production of estrogens and testosterone. Low DHEA can result in reduced libido and general malaise, while high DHEA can have masculinising effects on women because it metabolizes to androgens, including testosterone.

 

  • FSH and LH Hormones Fertility Blood Testing Profile – Estrogen is a group of hormones primarily responsible for the development of female sex organs and secondary sex characteristics. It is very important in determining fertility. In women, the follicular stimulating hormone or FSH produced by the pituitary gland stimulates cells or follicles surrounding the eggs in the ovaries, causing them to produce estrogen. When the estrogen levels reach a certain level, the pituitary produces a surge of luteinizing hormone or LH, which eventually causes the release of the egg, beginning the preparation for fertilization.

 

  • Estradiol Hormone Blood Test – normal levels of estradiol provide for proper ovulation, conception, and pregnancy, in addition to promoting healthy bone structure and regulating cholesterol levels.
