SKU: KFP_B_R114_4357 Category:


Hormones, such as estrogen, cortisol, progesterone and insulin, are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many areas of your overall health and fertility. The entire endocrine (hormonal) system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health and fertility problems.

The Female Hormone Blood test can tell you whether you have a  hormonal imbalance or thyroid problem that may be causing some or all of the symptoms listed below and be affecting your fertility.

This test is for you if you are struggling with any of the following symptoms:

  • Infertility and irregular periods
  • Unexplained weight gain or loss
  • Excess weight around the middle
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Acne
  • Low sex drive
  • Facial hair or thinning hair
  • Digestive issues

This test can allow you to track your hormone levels and understand how they change over time. Tracking your hormone levels over time can also tell you whether your hormone levels are decreasing with age. If you are taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT), this test can tell you whether your hormone levels remain in the normal range.

Please remember though, these tests are not a substitute for seeing your doctor. Our doctors will interpret your results based on the information you have provided, but will not diagnose, consult or provide any treatment. You will be advised to see your doctor for any necessary follow-up action.

Additional information



How to use

It’s best to take this test 2 to 5 days after the first day of your period, ideally on day 3 of your cycle. However, if you do not menstruate, you can take this test at any time.

It’s important to note that hormonal contraception can affect test results. You should take a break from hormonal conception and use barrier contraception in the month before this test.

If you have used one of your fingers to apply hormone gels/pessaries in the past 4 weeks, use a different finger to collect the sample. Ideally, use gloves for these creams in the 4 weeks prior to this test.

Do not take any biotin supplements for 2 days before this test. If your doctor has prescribed biotin, speak with them in advance



LH: Luteinising Hormone (LH) is produced by the pituitary gland and is important for male and female fertility. In women it governs the menstrual cycle, peaking before ovulation. In men it stimulates the production of testosterone.

Testosterone: Testosterone plays a key role in many essential body functions, such as sex drive (libido), energy levels, healthy bones, muscle mass, strength, and mood. It also controls sperm production, so changes in this hormone can affect your fertility.

FSH: Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced in the pituitary gland and is important for women in the production of eggs by the ovaries and for men for men in the production of sperm.

Free Androgen Index: The free androgen index (FAI) is a calculation used to determine the amount of testosterone which is free (unbound) in the bloodstream.

Oestradiol: Oestradiol is the primary female sex hormone, but it is also an essential hormone for men. It is a type of hormone called an oestrogen that supports a healthy reproductive system and healthy breast tissue and bones.

Prolactin: Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. Its primary purpose is to stimulate milk production after childbirth. But prolactin is known to have over 300 other body functions in both men and women.


Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG): Measuring the level of SHBG in your blood gives important information about your levels of free or unbound hormones which are biologically active and available for use.

Free Thyroxine: Thyroxine (T4) is the major hormone produced by the thyroid gland. It regulates the speed of bodily functions from your heart rate to your metabolism.

Thyroid hormones

TSH: TSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. This hormone stimulates the thyroid gland to produce the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Measuring TSH can tell you whether your thyroid is functioning normally.
