Saliva Hormone Testing

Have you been experiencing symptoms such as PMS, painful, heavy periods or hormonal acne and you’ve got no clue why?

Hormonal imbalances between oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone can trigger a number of unpleasant hormonal symptoms that can easily be addressed once the type of hormonal imbalance is known and corrected.

Saliva Hormone Testing is an accurate, non invasive way to test the levels of  reproductive hormones in your saliva.

Functional Medicine Testing for Hormonal Imbalances

Who Is This Test Recommended For?

This test is ideal for those who suffer with:

  • Irritability and mood changes premenstrually (PMS)
  • Period problems such as heavy, painful periods
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Hormonal acne
  • PCOS
  • Weight gain

What Does It Test For?

Saliva hormone testing assesses the following reproductive hormones:

  • Oestrogen: It tests 3 forms of oestrogen including oestradiol, oestrone and oestriol, not just oestradiol which is tested in standard blood tests, providing a more complete picture. Excess oestrogen is associated with symptoms such as weight gain, heavy painful periods, endometriosis, fibroids, and fluid retention. Inadequate levels of oestrogen is associated with hot flushes, vaginal dryness and bone loss.
  • Progesterone: Adequate levels of progesterone supports a healthy mood, healthy breast tissue and prevents symptoms associated with oestrogen excess thereby having a balancing effect.
  • Testosterone: Healthy levels of testosterone supports a healthy libido, healthy muscle mass and cognitive function.

Excess levels are associated with PCOS, irritability and hormonal acne in women.

  • DHEA: This hormone starts to decline as we age. Lower levels are associated with fatigue, depression, and low immunity.

Reproductive hormonal testing may also be recommended alongside a cortisol awakening response which you can read more about here.

How Does It Work?

For new clients, an initial consultation will need to be conducted before purchasing the test. The appropriate test will then be recommended by Chloe. You can organise your initial consultation here.

Saliva hormone testing is collected in the comfort of your own home by simply spitting into a vial between day 19-21 of your menstrual cycle. If your cycle is not 28 days, Chloe will advise you of the appropriate day to accurately collect your saliva.

After collection, it is sent express post to a specialised Laboratory based in Victoria, Australia.

The results take approximately 2-3 weeks to receive, followed by a thorough treatment plan with Chloe to balance your hormones.
