Female Hormone Home Blood Test


SKU: FFH7 Category:


The Female Hormone Home Blood Test measures levels of female hormones in your blood. The results could give you insight into potential causes for a host of symptoms, ranging from weight gain to tiredness, acne and other skin complaints. It is recommended for anyone who is looking for answers to unresolved symptoms that could be impacted by hormonal imbalance, as well as those who may be struggling with conceiving or concerned about their fertility. It is also recommended for those undergoing HRT (or “Hormone Replacement Therapy”), as it can indicate whether your hormones are remaining within the normal range.





How it works

- When we receive your test kit, please allow 5 days for us to process the results.
- You will receive an email letting you know when your results are ready.
- Your results will be available to download from your personal downloads folder.

IMPORTANT: Post your blood sample on the same day as testing to prevent your blood from being heamolysed which will result in re-testing.


Biomarker Profiles



Hormones: Hormones are chemical messengers which travel in your blood and control the way your body works. Hormones control many body functions, from growth and metabolism to reproduction and your sleep cycle.

LH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. It plays an essential role in male and female fertility. In women, levels of LH peak before ovulation.
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.
Testosterone is a hormone important for both men and women that regulates your sex drive (libido), muscle mass, fertility, and mood.
FSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. This hormone is essential for producing eggs in women and producing sperm in men. In women, FSH levels peak at ovulation and can increase in menopause.
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.
Free Androgen Index
Androgens are male sex hormones but are also present in women. Most androgens are bound to proteins which makes them unavailable for our body to use. Measuring FAI estimates the level of androgens in the blood that are ‘free’ (unbound) so are available for your body to use.
Proteins play many diverse roles in our bodies, from maintaining the functioning of cells, a healthy immune system to building our muscles. Protein levels in your blood can tell you many different things about your health and measuring protein levels can help our doctors interpret your blood results.
Most sex hormones, such as testosterone and oestrogen, bind to SHBG in the blood. When hormones are bound to SHBG, it means our body cannot use them. Measuring levels of SHBG can help to uncover if your hormone levels are right for you.
Thyroid Hormones
Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in your neck that produces thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones control the speed of your metabolism and maintain every function in your body to keep it healthy, from your heartbeat to your body temperature.
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.
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.
