Special instructions

Prepare for your HRT Blood Test by following these instructions. Take this test two to five days after the start of your period, ideally on day three. It can be taken any time if you do not have periods. Hormonal contraception can affect this test, taking a break from this and using barrier contraception will give more accurate results. Take this test 7 days before your next period is due. It can be taken at any time if you are not having periods. Avoid taking your sample from a finger used to apply hormone gels/pessaries in the past 4 weeks. Use gloves to apply these. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.

From the expert

Broadly, HRT means the replacement of any deficient hormone. More commonly, and in is the case in this check, it refers to the use of oestrogen and progesterone, to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, lethargy, sleep disturbance and vaginal dryness. Oestrogen hormones also help to prevent osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.

This check includes tests for 3 key hormones oestradiol, progesterone and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) to see if your levels lie within a healthy range for your age.
