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.

Frequently asked questions

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

What are the male hormones?

The main male hormone is testosterone, but there are also other hormones that can help us understand your overall hormonal network, such as prolactin, cortisol and luteinising hormone. Including these other crucial markers gives a much broader picture of how your whole hormonal network is functioning.

Find out more about each male hormone, what they do and why they’re important in our blog on the key male hormones.

What are the roles of male hormones?

Each hormone has a role to play in keeping you healthy and balanced:

  • Oestradiol – A type of oestrogen and important for libido and mood
  • Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) – A carrier protein
  • Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – A stimulating hormone
  • Luteinising Hormone (LH) – A stimulating hormone
  • Prolactin – A hormone that works with LH in sperm production
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) – Does what it says on the tin
  • Cortisol – A stress hormone that also has a role in multiple biological processes

Where are male hormones produced?

The stimulating hormones are made in the anterior pituitary gland, a small endocrine gland situated at the base of the brain, just behind the bridge of the nose. These stimulating hormones travel in the blood to the gonads (testicles) and then produce testosterone and Oestradiol.

Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands, these are two small triangular glands that sit just on top of your kidneys. Cortisol is released in a diurnal pattern, peaking early in the morning, then slowly dropping, reaching its lowest level about midnight.

SHBG is a protein that is produced by the liver. SHBG binds tightly to the hormones testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and oestradiol (an oestrogen) and transports them in the blood in an inactive form.

Why do I need to track my hormones?

Due to the integral nature of hormones to a number of different metabolic processes tracking your levels are an important part of maintaining optimal health. If your levels are too high or two low, you may be experiencing symptoms ranging from erectile dysfunction, depression, weight gain, skin complaints, and infertility.

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?
