  • Luteinising Hormone (LH)
  • Oestradiol
  • Testosterone
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
  • Prolactin
  • Free Androgen Index

  • Are planning a family and want to check their reproductive hormones for fertility
  • Have symptoms which they think might be related to a hormone imbalance

We suggest waiting until your periods have re-established a regular cycle (for you) before taking this test.
  • *Although you do not need a request from a GP to have this test we will require your GP’s contact details so that we can refer you to them for follow up should we find anything abnormality on the test.

Day 21 Ovulation Progesterone Blood Test

Day-21 progesterone blood test to identify whether or not you have ovulated – an essential first step in any investigation into fertility.

£79.00

  • A progesterone test performed 7 days before your next period is due can identify whether or not you have ovulated. Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum and adrenal glands. Together with oestrogen it helps to prepare the body to conceive; if you become pregnant then your progesterone levels will continue to rise. This test is an essential first step in investigating infertility.
  • We will be able to tell you whether your progesterone level was high enough for ovulation to have occurred. A borderline result may mean that the result is inconclusive and we cannot say whether ovulation occurred or not. In those circumstances we suggest repeating the test at a later date.
  • It is important to take this test 7 days before your next period is due. If you don't have a regular cycle then aim to take the test on the 21st day after the start of your last period.
  • *Although you do not need a request from a GP to have this test we will require your GP’s contact details so that we can refer you to them for follow up should we find anything abnormality on the test.

Pregnancy - hCG Blood Test

This test is very sensitive and can detect even very low levels of hCG, possibly giving a positive result earlier than an over-the-counter urine test. This test can also be used to monitor your pregnancy.

This test can tell if you are pregnant approximately 6 to 8 days after you ovulate (release an egg from an ovary).

£59.00

  • A negative result does not necessarily mean that you are not pregnant as hCG may not be detectable even with this sensitive test, especially if you tested early or ovulated late. A repeat test is recommended if your period has not arrived after another 3 days.
  • This test can also be used to monitor how your pregnancy is progressing as levels of hCG rise as the pregnancy progresses. High levels of hCG in the blood can also indicate a multiple birth.
  • *Although you do not need a request from a GP to have this test we will require your GP’s contact details so that we can refer you to them for follow up should we find anything abnormality on the test.

Day 3 Fertility Check Blood Test

A test of your reproductive hormones on cycle day 3 to assess egg production and ovarian reserve which can affect your fertility.

£99.00

This test includes:

  • Luteinising hormone (LH)
  • Oestradiol
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
  • This day 3 fertility test is often the first test that is performed in an investigation into female infertility. It is performed 3 days after the start of your period. The aim of the test is to check that hormone levels can support the maturation and release of a healthy egg from the ovary.
  • Please note that any hormones you are taking for contraception or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) will influence your results. If you are looking for a true picture of your fertility status then please take this test at least 12 weeks after stopping any hormone replacement or contraceptive pill, implant or hormone IUD. We suggest waiting until your periods have re-established a regular cycle (for you) before taking this test.
  • *Although you do not need a request from a GP to have this test we will require your GP’s contact details so that we can refer you to them for follow up should we find anything abnormality on the test.

Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) Blood Test

Blood test for Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) which is sometimes used as a measure of ovarian reserve in women.

£129.00

  • Are you busy with getting on with life but beginning to wonder how much time you might have left to start a family? Although this AMH test cannot give you a precise answer about how many viable eggs you have left, or predict your chances of becoming pregnant, it can be used to help you in family planning if it shows that your AMH is abnormal for your age.
  • An AMH test will indicate whether your AMH level is normal for your age. It cannot measure the actual number of viable eggs nor can it give a precise estimate of the years left that a woman has to try for pregnancy. However, the result can give an indication of whether a woman has the expected number of viable eggs for her age.
  • You can take your test at any time as AMH remains stable throughout your menstrual cycle. High dose biotin supplements can affect this test. If you are taking more than the recommended daily amount, then you should not take your supplements for two days before this test. If you are taking high dose biotin for medical reasons (e.g. multiple sclerosis), then you should discuss this with your doctor. The AMH test can return lower than expected results if you are taking the contraceptive pill or another form of hormonal contraception. Levels will return to normal after stopping use of contraception. Please let us know if you have polycystic ovarian syndrome as this can cause higher than expected levels of AMH.
  • *Although you do not need a request from a GP to have this test we will require your GP’s contact details so that we can refer you to them for follow up should we find anything abnormality on the test.
