Estradiol, or E2, is the main form of the female sex hormone estrogen. E2 is a steroid hormone and a relatively small molecule, derived from cholesterol.
Estradiol supports the maturation of the ovarian follicles preparing for oocyte ovulation (releasing the egg) and helps prepare the endometrium (lining of the uterus) for pregnancy. The changing levels also regulate the menstrual cycle itself, controlling what happens and when.
Progesterone, or P4, is a steroid hormone and a relatively small molecule, derived from cholesterol.
Progesterone prepares the endometrium (lining of the uterus) for a potential pregnancy after ovulation (release of an egg) by triggering the lining to thicken and accept a fertilized oocyte (egg). If no fertilization happens, then the progesterone levels dip, causing menstruation (bleeding) to begin.
Testosterone is an androgenic steroid hormone and a relatively small molecule, derived from cholesterol. It is often referred to as the major male sex hormone, although it is present and functional in women.
Testosterone plays a role in reproduction, growth, and maintenance of a healthy body. It’s produced in the ovaries, adrenal glands, fat cells, and skin cells under the control of LH and other hormones.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is a relatively large heterodimeric glycoprotein hormone.
LH helps control the menstrual cycle by stimulating the production of progesterone hormone and triggers the release of an oocyte (egg) from the matured follicle on the ovaries. The progesterone levels continue after ovulation until LH levels drop and menstruation follows. LH plays a central role in controlling the menstrual cycle affecting hormonal changes both directly and indirectly. As such, very high or very low levels can indicate problems with general fertility and indicate ovarian aging.
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a relatively large heterodimeric glycoprotein hormone.
FSH helps control the menstrual cycle by stimulating the production of Estrogen hormone, as it controls the growth and maturation of the ovarian follicles. FSH plays a central role in controlling the menstrual cycle affecting hormonal changes both directly and indirectly. As such, very high or very low levels can indicate problems with general fertility and indicate ovarian aging.
Dehydroepiandrosterone Sulfate (DHEA-S)
Dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) is an endogenous (internally produced) steroid hormone that acts as a precursor for other steroid hormones like estradiol and testosterone. The body holds DHEAS in reserve and converts it to specific hormones when needed. It plays an important role in the synthesis of estrogens and androgens.
Can this tell me about my fertility?
Some of these hormones might be useful in understanding your fertility. But at the moment Tuune doesn't offer advice about your fertility and cannot offer support for people seeking information about their fertility.
Should I test my hormones before starting birth control?
More specific information about your symptoms can be gained from testing your baseline hormone levels, although this is not essential. With this information we will be able to give you more support in choosing your birth control.
Can this test tell me about health risks?
Some of these hormones might be useful in understanding your health risks. But at the moment Tuune doesn't offer advice about your health risks and cannot offer support for people seeking information about their health risks.
Can I use my FSA/HSA?
While we do not bill your insurer directly, some of the costs might be eligible for HSA/FSA. Reimbursement will depend on your insurance carrier.

Is testing at home safe?
This form of testing is now really common, it's perfectly safe to test your hormones at home. You will be required to carry out a pinprick of your finger which will then bleed. We recommend following the instructions for use carefully to minimize any potential risks.
Who is Tuune sharing my data with?
We don't share your data with any third parties. Your information will only be shared with Tuune clinicians and scientists in order to provide you with information about your hormones and to improve our service to users.
Do I need to come off of birth control to test my hormones?
While we don't insist on you coming off of birth control, if you do come off of it at least 7 days before taking your test we can provide you with more information about your baseline hormones, and how they may affect your symptoms.
Do I need to take my test at a specific time in the month?
While it is not essential for us to know what time in the month you provide your sample, if we have this detail we can provide you with more information about your baseline hormones, and how they may affect your symptoms.
What happens if I have any questions about the kit when it arrives?
Make sure you read the instructions provided and check the contents of the kit carefully, and if you still have any questions or you need support reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
