This test measures concentrations of three vital sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone and testosterone.

Estrogen is primarily responsible for the development and maintainence of female sex characteristics. This includes stimulating the maturation of eggs as well as the integrity of the uterine lining, breasts, skin, and reproductive tissues. Additionally, estrogen aids in slowing bone loss and promoting nervouse system trasmissions to the brain.

Progesterone performs a vital secondary function within the body by montoring growth of the uterine lining and preparing it for the implanation of fertilized eggs. Once the fertilized egg is established, progesterone assists in embryo development for full-term pregnancy. Additionally, normalizes estrogen balance, sodium and water balance, aids thyroid hormone function, increases the metabolism of fat, and aids in the health of brain cells.

Testosterone is a vital hormone for both men and women. It helps regualte lean body mass, bone density, skin elasticity, and sex drive.
