Female Hormone Test FAQ

If my female hormone levels are too high or too low, does this mean I am infertile or can’t get pregnant?

If your test results show that one or more of your hormones are out of the expected range, this does not necessarily mean that you will have problems getting pregnant. A nurse will call you to talk to you about your results and explain what they mean to you. You can then discuss with your nurse what the next best steps are for you to take.

High levels of any of the four hormones could mean you have a problem or condition that needs to be checked by your doctor:

  1. High FSH: suggests a low ovarian reserve.
  2. High LH: might indicate ovarian failure or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
  3. High prolactin: may mean you’re not ovulating as you should (your ovulation may be suppressed) and an imbalance might affect pregnancy.
  4. High oestradiol: might indicate a problem with your ovarian reserve.

 

I am struggling to conceive, what fertility test should I order?

We offer a range of fertility tests for both men and women.

For women struggling to conceive, we would recommend doing both the female hormone test and the ovarian reserve test. These tests combined will provide you with a clear picture of your fertility status and can also indicate if there are any issues which may result in some difficulty getting pregnant.

The male fertility test kits provide a broad picture of a man’s hormonal health by looking at the key hormones involved.

 

Are my results shared with my Doctor?

This service is completely confidential - your results are not shared with anyone. The results will be delivered to your personal secure online account. They are yours to access and use as you wish.

If you do wish to share your results with your Doctor, the nursing support team will provide you with a printable copy of your results which you can take with you to your Doctor.

 

I’m worried about taking a blood sample from my finger. How easy is it to take a blood sample using this kit?

The lancet used to prick your finger is spring-loaded, so you won’t see the needle. When you place the lancet on your finger and press down as instructed, the needle is activated, and you will feel a small scratch for less than a second.
