Hormonal Balance Testing

Local Hormonal Balance Testing in Amherst, NY 

Hormonal balance testing is important because when hormones are imbalanced, it can result in some unpleasant symptoms. The symptoms include changes in weight, severe mood swings, changes in hair, changes in skin, and changes in metabolism. There are also other symptoms that can come about due to hormonal imbalances because the symptoms differ from person to person. Birth control affects the hormone balances in a person’s body, so sometimes a solution can be to switch or start taking birth control. In other cases, a doctor might suggest not being on birth control to help balance out your hormone levels.

How Does Hormonal Balance Testing Work? 

Consultation: The first step to determining if your hormone levels are imbalanced is to schedule a time to talk with a professional about your symptoms. From there, you can schedule a time to be tested. 

Testing: Hormone levels can be tested by getting blood, urine, or saliva samples. However, the most common ways to collect samples for hormonal balance testing are through urine and blood. In some cases, additional hormonal balance testing may be done at a local hospital. 

Lab Evaluation & Diagnosis: After blood and urine are collected, the samples are sent to a lab to be evaluated. When the results are in, they will be sent back to our staff at Suburban Women’s Health Care, PC where we will discuss the results with you. We will look at your symptoms and your hormone levels compared to our charts to determine a diagnosis.
