Preparing for Pregnancy Blood Test
We all want to be in excellent help when planning a pregnancy. This pre-pregnancy blood will measure your reproductive and thyroid hormones and vitamin D levels to ensure you are in a good state of health for conception.
How to use
For the best results, collect your sample before 10am.
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
