Male Hormone Test

Our male hormone blood test offers a comprehensive check of all the key male hormones. This hormone panel measures the levels of LH (luteinising  hormone, FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin) oestradiol, as well as three different testosterone measures; total testosterone, free testosterone (calculated) and FAI (free androgen index).

This range of hormones influences sex drive, muscle strength, energy and much more.

Why take a male hormone test?

  • You simply want to check your key male hormone levels
  • You are experiencing low libido and want to check hormone levels
  • You’re finding it more difficult to build muscle and think it may be related to hormone level falls

Benefits of male hormone testing

Understanding your male hormone profile can help you to get on top of a range of symptoms including low libido, difficulty building muscle and even potentially weight gain.

As you age, your testosterone levels in particular will drop. In fact, by your forties, your testosterone levels could be half that they were at twenty.

Regardless of your age, you can benefit from understanding and tracking your male hormone levels.

Our test makes it easy to do so. It’s a simple home finger prick blood test. You send us your sample and our accredited lab will analyse it. From there, it’s a matter of days until you have your results in a clear dashboard. You’ll get analysis of 6 different hormones and an insight into what these levels mean.

What our customers say

I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low.  By using Forth to test key biomarkers has put me in control of the areas I need to improve.

Jude Peck, 42

I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test was really easy to and my results were available within day. Using Forth has helped me take the action needed to get my hormones back on track.

Holly Rush, 39

I was keen to use Forth’s service to help monitor my haematological markers in particular since I've had problems in the past and by the time they are picked up by the GP I'm normally feeling unwell.  The test was quick and easy to do and results were back very quickly. The results are also incredibly accurate, being almost identical to those from tests done by my GP the same day.

Alice Lethbridge

As a former Olympic cyclist I always wanted to look after my health. This has never changed to this day but become a lot easier via Forth, it’s the only way to really understand your own body. 

Brian Smith

I'd put off getting regular blood tests before because of the long-winded process of a GP visit. Forth has changed all that. The process is very quick and very easy, with thorough, well-explained results delivered to your inbox within days.

Alice Hector

As a working mum, I often find myself training ‘tired’ as the demands of day-to-day life take their toll.  Forth has enabled me to gain a valuable insight into what is happening ‘under the surface’, so I  can adapt my training and lifestyle.

Kate Allan

Taking the test is simple just make sure you follow all the instructions so you follow the correct procedures. The customer service is second to none and the results are easy to understand and follow.

Matthew Bottrill

I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron.  My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP.  Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health

Mark Threfall, 29

Forth really helped me understand issues that I was having, which in the end turned out to be problems with iron absorption. Without their test I would never have known this. I now have the knowledge I need to improve.
