Special instructionsYou need to let us know the date of the first day of your last period (if you have them), this lets our doctors interpret your test accurately. You will receive an email asking you to complete this information in your MyMedichecks account, there is an option to tell us if you no longer have periods. This test is usually taken between days 2 and 5 of your period. Please take your sample in the morning. 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. Use of oestrogen containing medications such as hormone replacement therapy or the combined oral contraceptive pill can affect the results of this test. Please use your MyMedichecks account to let us know if you are taking these. You will get more accurate results if you are able to take this test during a break from your oestrogen containing medication. 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. You should take this test before you take any vitamin or mineral supplements. Please use your MyMedichecks account to inform us of any medicines you are taking whether prescribed or over the counter.
