    On more than one occasion I have been asked by females what they should be concerned with when tracking hormones. I find the male part of the equation challenging enough. I am usually at a loss for words and have no where to direct them. They want to be able to go into their doctor and ask to have the right labs ordered.

    What would make up the labs for a comprehensive test for a young lady, age 25, wanting to have a solid baseline?

    Would Rheins 24 hour plus a spectracell be a good reference to give?

    On thyroid? TSH, T3, T4, RT3, RT4, Globulin, other?

    Any references would be appreciated.

    There are two types of ladies.
    Menstruating progesterone & estrogens fluctuate, test at day (2-4), ovulation, (19-21)

    and post menopausal, flat lined, test any day

    --------------------

    Doctors insist on E2 (mostly) and progesterone, often without much testing, obviously that is totally wrong.

    On day 2-4, if progesterone and pregnenolone low, I would start with pregnenolone-MLM to build up progesterone to 1.4 or somewhat more.
    Then progress to days 19-21,
    much higher demand for progesterone
    at first see how preg-MLM affect progesterone, possibly add additional preg-MLM, if not enough add progesterone (prometrium at bed time).


    Menstruating aim at flat lined
    progesterone (15-20)
    estradiol (30-40)

    And rightly so.
