Hey girlies! My lovely sister purchased an cortisol and Dhea saliva test for me. I’m really low on funds as I haven’t be able to work for past 5 months and don’t want to mess this test up. The test needs to be returned before 19th Of Dec. And I’m just about to start my period. I can feel myself getting more irritable and more stressed. A few days before my menstral cycle my energy levels always seems like it gets a burst and my fatigue symptoms lesson. I googled to check if menstral cycles spike cortisol levels and it said it does. Has anyone got any experience with this or done a saliva cortisol test during or just before period, did it have any effect on the result?
I would have waited till after my cycle but due to test needin to be sent back before it I don’t really have a choice. So my question would be do I do it before or during?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated 💛
