Hormones control our bodies in a variety of ways and there is a wide range of symptoms that can indicate an imbalance. Mood swings, sudden weight gain, hair loss and anxiety are just some of the symptoms of hormone imbalance.

Why you might need it

Some of the health issues caused by hormone imbalance include polycystic ovaries, poor thyroid function and menopause. Any of the following symptoms can indicate hormone imbalance:

  • decreased sex drive
  • unexpected weight gain
  • hair loss or thinning of hair
  • infertility/ miscarriages
  • acne
  • anxiety
  • sensitive and painful breasts in both men and women
  • memory problems
  • night sweats / hot flushes.

If you’re worried that something isn’t right it’s a good idea to get tested – even if it’s just to put your mind at rest.

If the test shows an underlying health problem, we can help you treat it so you can get back to living life to the fullest.

Who will do it?

Our patients are at the heart of what we do and we want you to be in control of your care.

All of our nurses are of the highest standard and benefit from working in our modern, well-equipped hospitals.

Before your treatment

You will have a formal consultation with a healthcare professional. During this time you will be able to explain your medical history, symptoms and raise any concerns that you might have.

We will also discuss with you whether any further diagnostic tests, such as scans or blood tests, are needed. Any additional costs will be discussed before further tests are carried out.

Preparing for your treatment

We've tried to make your experience with us as easy and relaxed as possible.

For more information on parking and all those other important practicalities, please visit our patient information pages.

Our dedicated team will also give you tailored advice to follow in the run up to your visit.

The procedure

The test will take the form of a simple blood test. You will be asked to sit down while blood is drawn from your arm using a syringe. You may feel a prick when the needle goes in but it shouldn’t cause much discomfort and should only take a few minutes.

The blood will be sent away to our laboratories for analysis and you should get the results within a week. Your consultant will arrange a follow-up appointment to discuss them with you.

Even after you’ve left hospital, we’re still looking after you every step of the way. Once you've had your results, we can help to organise any further treatment you need.
