STI stands for “Sexually Transmitted Infection” and STD stands for “Sexually Transmitted Disease”. These two terms sound similar and the difference between them can be confusing. One of the reasons for this is that up to a certain point these two terms were synonymous and were used interchangeably. But now there is a technical difference between these terms which has been acknowledged by the medical community and can no longer be used synonymously.

Female Hormone Testing
Estrogen is the major female hormone that’s responsible for so much of what happens in the female body. Ovaries produce estrogen and with it, the female body can release eggs.
A woman’s curves, bone structure, skin, and other qualities that make her different from a man is due mostly in part to estrogen.
Common Female Hormone Panels
It’s common for us to hear from women that they want a basic panel of tests to check their hormone levels. Lower hormone levels could mean infertility struggles or menopause – two situations that would warrant a visit to the doctor.
To get an idea of your current hormone levels, our clients usually request the following panels:

Understanding STI vs STD
Privacy Matters for STI/STD Testing at Test Smartly Labs
While all health-related matters deserve the utmost privacy and confidentiality, some types of blood tests and lab work need even more. When it comes to STI or STD testing, you do not want to have any small chance of anyone you know finding out about your risks or diagnoses. Of course, if you go to your doctor’s office or even a public clinic, the HIPAA rules require everyone involved to keep your information private and secure. However, you may still have some doubts troubling your mind.
The Silent Epedemic STD
STD/STI statistics and need-to-know information to live a healthy life
It is one of the most difficult and uncomfortable topics for most people to discuss – and it is literally ruining millions of lives every day.
Estrogen is made up of several hormones:
E1: Estrone – Weakest form and found in women who’ve gone through menopause
E2: Estradiol – Strongest form produced by ovaries and its known to cause problems with bleeding, fibroids and some cancer types
E3: Estriol – found after the body uses E2, most commonly found after pregnancy
Estrogen is not the only female hormone, there are many others. If a woman desires to get pregnant, she will need the production of several other hormones.
As a woman ages, it’s her hormone levels that will indicate that she’s officially nearing menopause as estrogen levels drop.

The MRO will then call your physician to verify your medications.
