Hormonal Healthâ„¢-Genova Kit

Note: This is a test kit that will be mailed to you. It requires a blood draw. It is your responsibility to arrange the blood draw for your kit and payment of your specimen collection.



Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 7-10 Business Days
Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Special Instructions: Severe illness or hormone-modifying substances such as tamoxifen, antibiotics, hormone replacement therapies, and herbal and nutritional supplements may influence test results. These circumstances will not interfere with the test but are likely to shift some of the results and may be used as clinical guidelines to customize therapy.

Synthetic hormones, such as those in oral contraceptives and medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera) will NOT be reflected on the test. Similarly, only a fraction of the estrogen in Premarin will be represented (in the estrone measurement), although downstream metabolites may be affected.

Results for pre-menopausal women with irregular cycles and difficulty determining stage of menstrual cycle require careful interpretation due to the
cycle-dependent (luteal phase) reference ranges.

Description: This test provides a focused overview of hormonal balance in both pre- and post-menopausal women, using a single serum sample to evaluate dynamics of sex steroid metabolism that can profoundly affect a woman's health throughout her lifetime.
