Women’s health refers to the branch of medicine that focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of diseases and conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being.
Comprehensive Women's Health Panel
Our comprehensive women’s health panel provides patients with a routine wellness check. SmarTest Labs designed this two-tiered panel for women interested in learning more about their overall health and is appropriate for women at all stages of their lives. This panel includes everything in the basic women’s health panel in addition to measurements of liver health, Vitamin-D levels, and female sex hormones.
Basic Women's Health Panel
The Basic Women’s Health Panel consists of the most common tests performed for a routine wellness check. This panel is useful for identifying indicators of common problems such as kidney disease, thyroid disease and heart disease.
Pregnancy triggers the release of several hormones into the mother’s bloodstream, including the hormone hCG. This test will be positive seven days after conception. A false positive may result if you are taking any medication containing hCG.
Pregnancy with Gestational Age (How Far Along)
This test measures the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadatropin in your blood which can confirm a pregnancy earlier than at home tests and with greater accuracy.
- If you are more than two weeks pregnant, this test will tell you how far along the fetus is in its development. (Fetal Age Chart)
Menopause is the cessation of menstruation by women and terminates a woman’s opportunity to get pregnant. While its onset typically starts around 50, it can come on as early as 35. SmarTest Labs designed this panel for women who want children but suspect they may be in premature menopause.
- Specific hormone indicators will show the onset of menopause in women of any age. Sometimes, elevated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels are measured to confirm menopause. When a woman’s FSH blood level is consistently elevated to 30 mIU/mL or higher, and she has not had a menstrual period for a year, it is generally accepted that she has reached menopause.
- Women with lower levels of the hormone earlier in life tend to go through menopause at a younger age than average.
