Hormones (1 Biomarker)
Special instructionsYou need to let us know the date of the first day of your last period (if you have them), this allows our doctors to interpret your test accurately. You will receive an email asking you to complete this information in your MyMedichecks account, and there is an option to tell us if you no longer have periods. It is essential to take this test 7 days before your next period is due (if you have them). If you don't have a regular cycle, then aim to take the test on the 21st day after the start of your last period.¬† High dose biotin supplements can affect this test. If you are taking more than the recommended daily amount, then you should not take your supplements for two days before this test. If you are taking high dose biotin for medical reasons (e.g. multiple sclerosis), then you should discuss this with your doctor. Use of hormone-containing pessaries could also potentially cause falsely elevated results on finger-prick samples. We recommend either arranging a venous sample or taking care to avoid any finger used to handle pessaries.
