About flexible subscriptions

How does a subscription work?

When you purchase this test subscription plan, we will automatically send you another test kit in a few months. Don't worry - you have full control over when this will be, and you can change/cancel it anytime.

When you first purchase this test, you can choose your subscription options in the checkout. We do this, because we recommend taking multiple tests over time to track how your biomarkers change. You'll be charged per test kit (rather than monthly, for example).

Why subscribe to multiple tests?

One test will show you what areas you need to focus on, continued testing will help you learn how your training, diet and lifestyle is impacting your health.

How often should I test?

We recommend a follow up test 3 months after your first test, followed by a test every 6 months depending on your results, but its up to you!

Can I change what's tested in future tests?

Yes, you can tailor/customise subsequent tests (via your app) to focus on just the areas that need improving.

symptoms of a female hormone imbalance

When should women check their hormone levels?

There are many stages of your life where testing your hormones can be helpful, such as if you’re trying to conceive, suspect you’re going through perimenopause or are experiencing symptoms related to a hormone imbalance.

Our at-home hormone imbalance blood test means you can test and track your hormones whenever you need – without waiting to see your doctor.

What should normal female hormone levels be?

“Normal” levels will depend on several factors, such as your age. Women going through perimenopause or menopause will have very different levels compared to other women.

Your hormones also fluctuate across your menstrual cycle, so the normal range will change depending on what phase you’re in. The best way to find out if your levels are in the healthy range is to check them with our female hormone imbalance blood test.

Can this test detect perimenopause?

This test checks your blood for a hormone imbalance and so can be used to screen for perimenopause. However, our Perimenopause Blood Test is a more useful test for detecting perimenopause, as it uses blood samples for day 14 and day 21 of your menstrual cycle, paired with AI to accurately map your hormone fluctuations.

What is a full female hormone panel?

A full female hormone panel includes the 4 key female hormones – oestrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH) – as well as testosterone and thyroid hormones such as TSH. Our female hormone test checks all of these and more, giving you a complete look at what’s going on inside to help detect conditions related to a hormone imbalance, such as PCOS, menopause, an under and overactive thyroid and fertility problems.

Symptoms of a hormone imbalance

A hormone imbalance in women can present itself in many ways – both physical and mental.

Increased levels of oestrogen can cause weight gain, heavier or lighter periods, fatigue (tiredness) and PMS, whilst low progesterone levels can cause irregular periods, headaches, fertility problems and hot flashes.

Testosterone is also an important hormone to monitor. High testosterone in women can cause unwanted hair growth, acne and irregular periods. Low testosterone can also cause irregular periods, as well as low sex drive, loss of muscle mass and lack of energy.

These are just a handful of symptoms related to a hormone imbalance in women. There are many more and they can vary in severity from person to person. Checking your hormone levels via a blood test is the best way to find the answers you need.

Frequently asked questions

This is what our customers ask us most about this test. For more information, try our help centre.

What are female hormones?

The 4 main female hormones are progesterone, oestrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH). They play a wide role within the body affecting fertility, mood, energy and reproductive health.

They work together to regulate and manage your reproductive health. Testosterone is also important for women, as it’s used to produce oestrogen. These hormones naturally fluctuate during your menstrual cycle with levels of oestrogen and progesterone declining during perimenopause and menopause.

What causes a hormone imbalance?

The cause of hormone imbalance can be wide-ranging – from stress to thyroid disorders. So our female hormone test checks your key fertility hormones, along with thyroid function to help identify causes of your symptoms.

How do I test for a hormone imbalance?

Our female hormones blood test can help you test for and identify an imbalance in your hormones.

The test is a simple at-home, finger prick blood test. That means you only need to collect a small amount of blood from your fingertip, using the lancets included in the kit. You post it back to our labs, and we’ll send you the results within 2 working days after receiving it.

We’ll check the 4 key female hormones, as well as a range of other biomarkers related to a healthy hormone network.

How do hormones control the menstrual cycle?

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a complex interplay of hormones, primarily: oestrogen, progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and luteinizing hormone (LH)

Follicular Phase

At the beginning of the menstrual cycle, called the follicular phase, FSH is released by the pituitary gland. It stimulates growth of follicles in the ovaries, each containing an immature egg (oocyte).

As the follicles grow, they start producing oestrogen. Rising levels of oestrogen stimulate the thickening of the womb lining (endometrium) in preparation for a potential pregnancy.

Ovulation

A sudden surge in LH levels, triggered by the high levels of oestrogen, starts around the middle of the menstrual cycle. This surge triggers the release of the matured egg from the ovary (ovulation).

Luteal Phase

Progesterone levels rise and peak during the luteal phase. It helps maintain the thickened womb lining, preparing it for possible implantation of a fertilised egg. If pregnancy doesn’t occur, progesterone levels drop.

Menstruation

The decrease in both oestrogen and progesterone levels triggers the shedding of the womb lining, marking the start of a new menstrual cycle.

This hormonal interplay is a delicately balanced process that typically spans about 28 days but can vary from person to person. 

Does a hormone imbalance impact weight?

Hormone imbalances can impact various bodily functions, including metabolism, appetite, and fat distribution, which can have a knock-on effect on weight.

During menopause, when oestrogen levels decline, women may experience weight gain, particularly around the abdomen. Imbalances in progesterone levels can sometimes be associated with water retention and bloating, which might temporarily impact weight, although this is usually not a significant contributor to long-term weight changes.

How do I fix a hormone imbalance?

The first thing to consider is whether or not the imbalance needs ‘fixing’ or if it’s a natural fluctuation, such as during your menstrual cycle or during perimenopause.

There are treatments available to help manage the symptoms related to hormonal changes during perimenopause, such as HRT.

But you can also make lifestyle changes throughout your life to help manage the impact of hormone fluctuations. Your diet, how much you exercise and sleep, and whether or not you smoke/drink can all have an impact on your hormonal balance.

A blood test can help you keep track of your hormone levels, making it easier to monitor the impact of changes and live a healthy and happy life.

How soon will the test arrive?

If you order your test before midday on a Monday to Friday then your kit will be dispatched
the same day.

All our kits are sent out via Royal Mail first class post, so it should be with you within 1-2
working days.

How secure is my data?

We have strict processes in place to ensure the protection of your data. Following GDPR the company also operates under tight legal rules about the sharing of data which ensures that data is only shared if it is crucial to the delivery of our service. For example, our doctors see customer results at the time of review, however, after review, access to results is withdrawn.

Learn more about your data security.

Can I have someone take my blood for me?

Yes. We offer two options if you do not want to do our finger prick test. The first is a home appointment where a nurse comes to your home to take a blood sample. The second is to visit a Phlebotomy clinic near you that offers a blood sample service.

A blood sample will be taken from your vein and we will provide you with everything you need to give to the nurse to allow them to take the sample.

The nurse will give you the blood sample to return to us using the pre-paid envelope provided.

Does a doctor review my results?

We have a team of doctors and nurses who look at all results and will comment on any results that are outside of the normal range for your age.

Can I download the results to share with my GP?

Yes, you can download your results from your health dashboard as a PDF to share with your GP.
