Menopause Tests




Hormone imbalances can make a woman's menopausal transition a difficult time, but creating hormone balance with natural, bioidentical hormones can create harmony and balance. These menopause test kits offer valuable information for women seeking natural hormone balance. Saliva and blood spot testing are accurate, reliable, in-home and a simple first step in determining what may be causing symptoms in a menopausal woman.

Symptoms of menopause or perimenopause (the transition into menopause) caused by hormone imbalance may include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, fatigue, moodiness, foggy thinking, weight gain, water retention, heavy menstrual bleeding, bone loss and headaches.

Overall, menopausal symptoms are most often caused by estrogen dominance, a term coined by Dr. John Lee to describe a woman who has too much estrogen relative to progesterone. Even though her estrogen levels may be normal (and not high), if she doesn't have enough progesterone to balance the effects of estrogen, she may have estrogen dominance symptoms. Progesterone deficiency is one of the major causes of menopausal symptoms and in many women, using about 20 mg per day of progesterone in a cream may solve the problem.

However, women who are stressed out may have high cortisol levels, and this can also cause hormone imbalances. Cortisol can block progesterone, creating progesterone deficiency symptoms even when progesterone levels are normal. This may sound complicated now, but when you receive the results of your saliva test, you'll find out how simple it can be to regain hormone balance.

A saliva test can give you the specific information you need to start feeling better.
