Women now comprise nearly half of the U.S. labor force at 46.8 percent . To attract and retain top female talent, employers must take proactive steps to support women’s health needs. Understanding women’s health needs and implementing policies to support them at work will help improve their quality of life so they can live healthier, happier lives and feel more empowered to reach their full potential at work. Here’s how LetsGetChecked’s inclusive and empowering benefits support women’s health and wellness throughout every stage of life.
Female Fertility Testing
Seventy-five percent of women in the workforce today are of reproductive age . Whether looking to have kids soon, thinking about it for the future, or struggling to become pregnant, understanding hormone levels is crucial. Offering well-rounded health benefits is a proactive way for employers to meet the needs of their female employees. At-home fertility tests are an accessible first step that people can take in the privacy of their own homes.
Various types of home fertility tests are available to allow individuals to track their hormone levels and fertility on their own, which is useful for those trying to conceive. LetsGetChecked offers a Progesterone Test, Female Hormone Test, and Ovarian Reserve Test to help employees understand their fertility status and receive actionable health information to understand their options and plan for the future.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, affecting about one in ten women . It is also one of the most common but treatable causes of infertility. Despite its prevalence and reproductive, metabolic, and psychological implications, PCOS is a hugely undiagnosed condition, in part because of the diverse manifestation of symptoms. One study showed that up to 70% of women hadn't yet been diagnosed with PCOS .
PCOS can be an emotionally and physically debilitating condition, causing feelings of tiredness and exhaustion that cause a lack of focus at work. Affected women may also struggle with irregular periods, pelvic pain, excessive hair growth, weight gain, and acne. The condition can also cause mental health problems like depression and social anxiety. As many cases of PCOS go undiagnosed, many women in the workplace are suffering from symptoms in silence. LetsGetChecked’s at-home PCOS Test can help empower employees with insights into key hormone levels to make informed healthcare decisions and receive the care they need.
