How to take your home blood test
” Hormones are key to regulating every activity in your body, from growth to metabolism. From reproduction to your sleep cycle. A small imbalance in hormone levels can have a significant impact on your health. This can affect your mood and energy levels as well as your fertility or libido.
Our female hormone blood test can be taken by women trying to conceive or wanting to check their fertility status so that they can be reassured that their hormones are in sync.
If you are over the age of 40 and you are having hot flushes or mood swings plus your periods are irregular or stopped – this test will also be able to evaluate if you are menopausal or peri-menopausal. “
