Men's Fertility Low Testosterone Blood Test
Is it for you?
£35.00Terms and Conditions apply
Hormones (1 Biomarker)
Special instructionsPlease take your sample in the morning. If you are taking a finger-prick sample and you use any form of hormone-containing gel or pessary (eg hormone replacement therapy or testosterone replacement therapy) then we recommend that you take your blood sample from a finger which has not been in contact with the gel or pessary for several weeks, wearing a glove whilst applying the medication can help with this. 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 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking high dose biotin for medical reasons (e.g. multiple sclerosis) then you should discuss this with your doctor. The quality of your sleep can affect testosterone levels. Avoid taking your test when your sleep is likely to be disrupted, particularly if you are getting less than five hours sleep per night.
Why take this test?
- You have symptoms which you think may be caused by low T (testosterone) including low libido and difficulty gaining muscle
- You have had medical treatment or have taken steroids which you know can reduce testosterone levels
- You have been trying for a baby without success and want to make sure that low testosterone is not impacting your fertility
- You have problems getting and maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction) and want to see whether low testosterone is a cause
