Yes, you can still test whilst using hormonal contraception or taking HRT. We’ll ask you about your current contraception or HRT in your Online Health Assessment.
If you're on hormonal contraception we can still test for Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH), Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Free Thyroxine (T4) which will give you an insight into your ovarian (egg) reserve and general hormone health. We may also test more hormones such as testosterone and prolactin, depending on your online health assessment answers. However, as hormonal contraception affects ovulation and influences some hormones, we cannot test for LH, FSH, Oestradiol as your results would be inaccurate. It’s also important to be aware that your AMH levels might be temporarily lowered if you’re on hormonal contraception.
If you want to test for LH, FSH & Oestradiol, we recommend coming off your hormonal contraception and testing on your 3rd cycle (or 3 months if your cycle has not returned). This allows your hormones to revert back to their natural levels and allows us to get an accurate measurement.
The bespoke panel of hormones which you will be tested for will be displayed prior to checkout after you complete your online health assessment. Please note that if you purchase a Hormone & Fertility Test, collect your sample and receive your results, we are then unable to provide a refund if you claim to not have understood which hormones we were able to test you for.
