Hormone & Fertility Testing

Your hormones regulate your fertility and also play a big role in important body functions such as metabolism, sleep, development, and overall mood. A small change in your hormone levels can have a big impact on your overall health, so hormone testing can help you monitor your general wellbeing, and fertility.

Why do a Hormone & Fertility test?

Hormones naturally fluctuate throughout our lives and our cycles. But sometimes, they can be thrown off-balance, causing some of these symptoms.

Testing your hormones can help get to the bottom of your symptoms and highlight any imbalances. It can also help you understand your fertility by giving you an insight into your ovarian reserve, ovulation and cycle, and your overall reproductive hormone health, so you can get to know your unique biology and help plan your journey to conception.

What do we test?

We tailor each test according to you and your reproductive goals. Our test panel includes your menstrual cycle hormones, such as follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone and oestradiol to assess your cycle health. We also test anti-mullerian hormones to give an insight into your ovarian reserve, thyroid-stimulating hormone and more, depending on the answers you give in your Care Questionnaire.

How can you monitor your hormones and fertility?

Unfortunately Mother Nature isn’t quite on your side when it comes to your fertility, and as you age, your fertility declines. But the rate of decline is different for everyone, so understanding your unique fertility index is important for protecting your parenthood plans. With regular testing and insights, you can monitor your fertility and reproductive health, and highlight any red-flags sooner, rather than later.

FAQs

Best to test? We recommend collecting your sample in the morning within the first 3-4 hours of waking up, after your body has fasted for at least 8 hours.

But don’t go thirsty! It’s important your body is well hydrated to encourage your blood flow, so be sure to drink plenty of water before testing.

Get prepped! Remove all the items from the box and read through the instructions. Make sure the cap is removed from the collection tube before you begin.

The warmer the better! It’s important that your hand is nice and warm to increase your blood flow, so either collect your sample after a hot shower, or submerge your hand into hot water for at least 5 minutes.

Find your finger! Dry your hand off, and choose the finger you’ll be pricking - we suggest the outer-fleshy part of your ring or baby finger. Sterilise your finger with the alcohol wipe and let it dry.

Time to prick! Twist off the lancet (don’t worry you won’t see a needle) and press it firmly down on your finger. Wipe away the first drop of blood with a clean tissue.

Get down low! Use a low surface for the collection tube - get gravity on your side! Stand up and hold your arm down to allow blood to drip into the tube.

Massage that hand! Massage down your hand firmly - starting from the palm down to the end of your finger - making sure not to squeeze the piercing. If you can't get enough blood for the sample - just re-pierce with a spare lancet!

Hertility tests are suited for women and AFABs between the ages of 18-45. No matter what stage you’re at on your fertility journey, we’re here for you.

With our Care Questionnaire, we customise each test to suit your own health needs and the stage you’re at in your fertility journey. Your personalised results will give you an insight into your fertility future, and if needed, we can guide you down the correct care pathway.

Different hormones must be tested on certain days of your cycle. For example:

Hormones such as Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and Prolactin (Prl) can be tested at any point in your cycle. However, some hormones such as Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), Luteinizing hormone (LH), and Oestradiol (E2) must be tested on the third day of your menstrual cycle to optimise their measurement.

Progesterone should be tested 7 days before your cycle ends, so if you have a 28 day cycle, you would test on day 21.

With our Care Questionnaire, we tailor each test to suit your health needs and the stage you’re at in your fertility journey. Your answers determine which hormones to test and on what day of your cycle.

It’s also best to test in the morning, within 3-4 of waking up after fasting for at least 8 hours. Some hormones can also fluctuate throughout the day - so collecting your sample first thing gives the most accurate readings.

Every test is a peek into your fertility at that point in time, however, your fertility is continuously changing alongside your age, lifestyle, and environment.

It’s good practice to be #ReProductive with your fertility and retest your hormones every 3- 12 months.

Routine testing can help you evaluate how your fertility hormones are changing. It not only gives you the most up to date information to make decisions about your fertility, but would also be valuable medical history in case you ever need fertility treatment.

We recommend collecting your sample first thing in the morning before breakfast, as you would have fasted for at least 8 hours.

Eating can affect certain hormone levels, so if you have eaten before taking your test, the results may not be accurate, however, water is fine.

If you have eaten before taking the test, don’t worry. Your kit has a shelf life of 6 months - so you can always hold off until next month!
