About the Test

A hormone blood test is a laboratory test that measures the levels of specific hormones in the blood. Hormones are chemical messengers produced by various glands and tissues in the body, which regulate a wide range of physiological processes, such as growth and development, metabolism, and reproductive function. Hormone blood tests may be used to diagnose and monitor a variety of medical conditions related to hormonal imbalances, such as thyroid disorders, diabetes, and reproductive disorders. The type of hormone blood test ordered will depend on the specific hormone being tested and the medical condition being evaluated. It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to hormone levels and whether a hormone blood test is necessary or appropriate.

Analytes Tested In The Hormone Blood Test

5 Analytes

  1. Estradiol
  2. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FH)
  3. Luteinizing hormone (LH)
  4. Progesterone
  5. Testosterone 
Estradiol

Estradiol is a type of estrogen hormone that is produced primarily by the ovaries in women and, to a lesser extent, by the testes in men. Estradiol plays a key role in the development and maintenance of female reproductive function, including the menstrual cycle, the growth and development of the breasts and uterus, and the maintenance of bone density. Estradiol levels can be measured through a blood test and may be used to diagnose certain reproductive disorders or to monitor hormonal therapy. In men, elevated levels of estradiol may be associated with conditions such as gynecomastia (enlarged breast tissue) or decreased testosterone levels. It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to estradiol or other hormone levels.

An estradiol blood test is a laboratory test that measures the levels of estradiol, a type of estrogen hormone, in the blood. Estradiol plays a key role in the development and maintenance of female reproductive function, including the menstrual cycle, the growth and development of the breasts and uterus, and the maintenance of bone density.

An estradiol blood test may be ordered for a variety of reasons, such as to evaluate menstrual irregularities, infertility, or symptoms of menopause. Abnormal estradiol levels may indicate certain medical conditions, such as ovarian dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Interpreting estradiol blood test results requires the expertise of a healthcare provider, who can evaluate the results in the context of the patient’s medical history and symptoms. If abnormal estradiol levels are detected, the healthcare provider may order additional tests or recommend further evaluation to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to estradiol or other hormone levels and whether an estradiol blood test is necessary or appropriate.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FH)

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland and plays a key role in reproductive function. In women, FSH helps regulate the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth and maturation of ovarian follicles, which are structures that contain developing eggs. In men, FSH stimulates the production of sperm in the testes. FSH levels can be measured through a blood test and may be used to diagnose certain reproductive disorders or to monitor fertility treatments. It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to FSH or other hormone levels.

A follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) blood test is a laboratory test that measures the levels of FSH, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, in the blood. In women, FSH helps regulate the menstrual cycle and stimulates the growth and maturation of ovarian follicles, which are structures that contain developing eggs. In men, FSH stimulates the production of sperm in the testes.

An FSH blood test may be ordered for a variety of reasons, such as to evaluate menstrual irregularities, infertility, or symptoms of menopause. Abnormal FSH levels may indicate certain medical conditions, such as ovarian dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, or pituitary gland disorders.

Interpreting FSH blood test results requires the expertise of a healthcare provider, who can evaluate the results in the context of the patient’s medical history and symptoms. If abnormal FSH levels are detected, the healthcare provider may order additional tests or recommend further evaluation to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to FSH or other hormone levels and whether an FSH blood test is necessary or appropriate.

Luteinizing hormone (LH)

Luteinizing hormone (LH), is a hormone that plays a key role in reproductive function. LH is produced by the pituitary gland and helps regulate the menstrual cycle in women and the production of testosterone in men. In women, LH levels increase during ovulation to trigger the release of an egg from the ovary. In men, LH stimulates the Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone. LH levels can be measured through a blood test and may be used to diagnose certain reproductive disorders or to monitor fertility treatments. It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to LH or other hormone levels.

A luteinizing hormone (LH) blood test is a laboratory test that measures the levels of LH, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, in the blood. In women, LH helps regulate the menstrual cycle and triggers the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). In men, LH stimulates the Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone.

An LH blood test may be ordered for a variety of reasons, such as to evaluate menstrual irregularities, infertility, or symptoms of menopause. Abnormal LH levels may indicate certain medical conditions, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), pituitary gland disorders, or premature ovarian failure.

Interpreting LH blood test results requires the expertise of a healthcare provider, who can evaluate the results in the context of the patient’s medical history and symptoms. If abnormal LH levels are detected, the healthcare provider may order additional tests or recommend further evaluation to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to LH or other hormone levels and whether an LH blood test is necessary or appropriate.

Progesterone

Progesterone is a hormone that is produced primarily by the ovaries in women and, to a lesser extent, by the adrenal glands. Progesterone plays a key role in preparing and maintaining the uterus for pregnancy. During the menstrual cycle, progesterone levels rise in the second half of the cycle to prepare the uterus for a possible pregnancy. If pregnancy occurs, progesterone levels remain elevated to help support the developing fetus. If pregnancy does not occur, progesterone levels decrease and a new menstrual cycle begins. Progesterone levels can be measured through a blood test and may be used to diagnose certain reproductive disorders or to monitor hormonal therapy. It’s important to talk to a healthcare provider about any concerns related to progesterone or other hormone levels.

Testosterone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone that is produced by the testicles in men and in smaller amounts by the ovaries in women. It plays a key role in male sexual development, including the growth of the penis and testicles, the deepening of the voice, and the growth of facial and body hair. Testosterone also helps regulate bone density, muscle mass and strength, and red blood cell production. In addition, it is important for maintaining a healthy libido and overall well-being. Low testosterone levels can lead to decreased sexual function, decreased muscle mass, decreased bone density, and increased body fat. A blood test can be used to measure testosterone levels, and testosterone replacement therapy may be recommended for individuals with low testosterone levels.

Testosterone is made by:

  • The testicles (or testes), the part of the male reproductive system that makes sperm
  • The ovaries, the part of the female reproductive system that makes eggs
  • The adrenal glands, organs on top of each kidney that make several hormones

During male puberty, testosterone causes body hair, muscle growth, and a deepening voice. In adult life, it controls sex drive, maintains muscle mass, and helps make sperm. In females, testosterone is important for the growth of bones and muscles, and healthy organs.
