This at-home blood and saliva test provides insights by measuring a woman’s reproductive hormones, thyroid function, and stress responses. Results include a personalized health plan.
Thorne's fertility panel is a biological assessment that reflects the convergence of biological, psychological, and social elements. This biological assessment, when combined with proven methods to improve your diet, nutrition, stress, sleep, activity level, and other primary factors, can both empower you and promote healthy fertility.
Although infertility is relatively common, couples are nevertheless confronted with medical, psychological, and financial uncertainty. This uncertainty is highly frustrating and can lead to feelings of despair and powerlessness.
Fortunately, there are proven, evidence-based steps that can be taken to improve biological fertility function. The first step is assessing your biological status, on both the cellular level and the lifestyle level. The resulting fertility profile will reveal the status of three categories of biological markers that have been shown to alter fertility on a biological level. The three categories of biological markers are:
- Reproductive Hormones – Estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH)
- Thyroid Hormones – Thyroid stimulating Hormone (TSH), T3, T4, and TPOAb
- Stress Hormones – Cortisol (measured for rhythm at four time-points) and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
These three categories of biological markers ‐ Reproductive, Thyroid, and Stress Hormones ‐ are assessed in the Thorne fertility panel. These hormones work synergistically in your body to promote or impede fertility. Certain of these biological markers, when they are out of normal range, will contribute to infertility more than others.
The test panels in Thorne's fertility test are not intended to be used as diagnostic measures relative to determining your fertility. Instead, this test is intended as a screening tool, that is within your control, that will reveal patterns in your hormones that might be influencing your fertility. With a knowledge of these patterns, you can take basic supportive steps and more precisely communicate with your health-care practitioner.
