Female Hormone Panel (FHP)
The Female Hormone Panel (FHP) is a non-invasive test consisting of 11 saliva
specimens collected during specified time periods throughout the menstrual cycle.
The ovaries are a major component of the female reproductive cycle and they release
hormones in a cyclical manner which is referred to as the menstrual cycle. The Female
Hormone Panel provides a dynamic mapping of the free fraction levels of Estradiol
(E2) and Progesterone (P) throughout one cycle. In addition, the cycle average of
Testosterone (T) and DHEA are measured. The Female Hormone Panel includes: Estradiol
(x11), Progesterone (x11), cycle average Testosterone and DHEA/DHEA-S, 3 Progesterone
production indices, 4 Estradiol production indices, a full cycle P/E ratio graph
and an example of a restorative plan. The expanded Female Hormone Panel (eFHP)
includes an additional seven (7) FSH and seven (7) LH measurements.
