Testosterone

Checks your level of the hormone Testosterone. Testosterone is the main sex hormone in males. The high levels of testosterone that men have compared to women are responsible for the development of virtually all the physical differences between the sexes. In adult males it controls sex drive, maintains muscle mass and helps make sperm. Understanding your testosterone level may help if you are experiencing low sex drive, infertility, erectile dysfunction and more. Testosterone levels should also be checked regularly by anyone using testosterone supplements for any reason.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will be tested?

Testosterone levels

Preparing for the test

There is no need to fast (go without food or drinks) for this test.

We do suggest keeping your arm warm, as being cold can sometimes make it harder to draw your blood, and stay well hydrated.

If blood tests make you anxious, let your phlebotomist know at the start of your appointment. They will do their best to make the experience as stress-free as possible

What to expect

During your test, you will be asked to fill out a medical questionnaire to  make sure you are well enough for the test. The main part of your screen will be a simple venous blood test (where blood is drawn from a vein in your arm using a needle). This should only take a minute or two to complete.

 

You would receive your results via email with the in-house GP's review to allow you to understand your results.

When do I get my results?

You will receive your results on the two days after the blood sample is taken as the sample is received by the laboratory the following day.

London laboratory test all samples as quickly as possible after receiving them which enables the team of in-house GPs to review and communicate your results in the fastest possible time frame.
