Hormone Balance When Taking HRT Blood Test

Measure your levels of oestradiol, progesterone and FSH while you’re taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Is it for you?

Are you taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT)? HRT can help to relieve menopausal symptoms, like hot flushes, lethargy, sleep disturbances, and vaginal dryness.

Your HRT prescriber will tailor your regime according to your symptoms. However, if you continue to experience symptoms while on a higher dose of HRT, you may find this test insightful.

What is HRT?

Broadly, HRT means the replacement of any deficient hormone. More commonly and in the case of our test, it refers to using oestrogen and progesterone to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, lethargy, sleep disturbance, and vaginal dryness. Oestrogen hormones also help to prevent osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.

What is the Hormone Balance on HRT Test?

Our test checks for three hormones: oestradiol, progesterone, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Our test can be taken once you have reached menopause. If you have applied hormone gels, pessaries, or patches in the past four weeks, avoid taking your blood sample from the same finger you used to apply them. If you take biotin supplements, then we recommend that you don’t take them for two days before this test. If you have been prescribed the supplements, discuss this with your doctor before you alter your dosage.

When should take this test?

Prepare for your HRT Blood Test by following these instructions. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to apply hormone gels/pessaries/patches in the past 4 weeks. Use gloves to apply these. Do not take biotin supplements for two days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.
