Our Male Hormone Blood Test offers valuable insights for men looking to measure key hormones like testosterone, DHEA, LH and FSH. Whether you are experiencing low energy, reduced sex drive, loss of muscle mass, or more, this test can provide a comprehensive hormone profile. We go beyond total testosterone to calculate Free Androgen Index (FAI), assessing biologically available testosterone. 

You can come to one of our clinics or choose the convenience of home testing - you can take control of your well-being on your schedule. With the home kit there is no need for clinic visits or referrals. With a simple finger prick from home, gain a deeper understanding of your health so you can make better-informed decisions, faster. Our accredited UK lab delivers rapid, reliable results straight to you, same or next day.

If you do choose to come to a clinic then the results are even quicker, with no postage involved, you can come straight to the clinic for your blood test.

The end result is that you can easily track levels over time, for example with subscription discounts, and our accompanying online Health Dashboard tool, where you can identify imbalances early that may be impacting your health and vitality. 

Whether you are considering late-life fatherhood or you are concerned about symptoms, discover how your hormones influence you with the Male Hormone Blood Test kit. 

About the Male Hormone Blood Test

Hormones work together in complex ways to regulate biological functions. The Male Hormone Test analyses levels of key hormones to assess masculinity, energy, and fertility.

Specifically, the Male Hormone Blood Test looks at hormone levels that are involved in fertility, sex drive and sexual function, maintenance of muscle mass, and maintenance of mood and energy levels.

We calculate Free Androgen Index to measure active testosterone levels. Low FAI may explain low testosterone symptoms despite normal total T. Additionally, we examine LH, FSH, DHEA and oestrogen to give a comprehensive male hormone profile.

With one simple home test, gain a deeper understanding of your hormonal health and how it impacts energy, sexual function, fertility and overall well-being

Doctor's notes

Hi, I am Dr. Adam Staten and here's my view on this test as a GP and Clinical Director at One Day Tests.

Hormones do not operate in isolation but form part of complex cascades and feedback loops that help control all aspects of our biological function. Whilst testosterone is the male hormone that is most often focussed upon, there are more hormones involved in the development and maintenance of male sexual characteristics, regulation of sex drive and sexual function, and male fertility.

The Male Hormone Blood Test looks at a number of different hormones to give an in-depth picture of your hormone profile.

By testing for Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, we can calculate the Free Androgen Index (FAI) which tells us how much biologically active testosterone you have, rather than simply total testosterone. If your FAI is low, it may explain why you have symptoms of a low testosterone level despite an apparently normal total testosterone level.

The hormones LH and FSH are produced in the brain and are important for testosterone production and sperm maturation respectively and are therefore crucial for sexual function and fertility.

The hormone DHEA is produced in the adrenal glands and is an important precursor to testosterone. We also check oestrogen levels because, although oestrogen is typically considered the "female hormone", men also produce it in small amounts. High levels of oestrogen can impact sperm production and sex drive.

Red flag symptoms for the Male Hormones Blood Test

Even if your blood tests are normal, you should see a doctor if you have any of the symptoms below because they may be a sign of serious underlying illness.

Your Results and Health Dashboard

The results of your Male Hormones Blood Test will be emailed to you as a secured PDF file, ready for your GP and will also be uploaded to our Health Dashboard area of the website. It’s a unique and powerful tool, powered by our in-house clinical analysis research, to match your biomarkers across test panels and symptoms, as well as provide clinical commentary on all individual biomarkers you tested for.

The health dashboard will also provide "panel level" commentary - a birds eye view of the biomarkers that were tested. This feature allows you to view your test results and clinical commentary, and compare them to previous results, giving you a clear understanding of how your health is progressing.

By using the Health Dashboard, you can identify changes in your biomarkers and make necessary adjustments to your lifestyle. This added value is immense, as it empowers you to monitor your health and make informed decisions about your well-being.

It's free and is available with all of our tests.

Special instructions

Hi, I am Stefania Brown, I am the Laboratory Manager at One Day Tests and here are the lab's special requests for the Male Hormones Blood Test.

Take this test in the morning between 7am and 10am when testosterone levels are at their highest.

If you are taking biotin supplements, stop taking these 72 hours before the test.

If you are using testosterone gel supplements, do not take the finger prick test from the hand you use to apply the gel.

Venepuncture appointment - how to prepare

If you are coming into one of our clinics for the test, this is what you need to do before you arrive:

  • Drink plenty of water about an hour before the appointment.
  • Avoid coffee/tea/energy drinks. Water is good!
  • That’s it! We’ll do the rest.

Home test kit for Male Hormones Blood Test - how it works

Our blood test kits are simple and convenient.

The most important step in doing a blood test at home is to read the instructions very carefully. The process is very simple, but there are a few pitfalls you need to be aware of - you will save yourself a lot of time if you do it right the first time around!

  • Full printed instructions will arrive with your kit - please read them carefully.
  • Drink plenty before taking the sample and warm your hands up in the sink with warm water for a few minutes. This will make your blood flow much better.
  • Fill the tubes to the top line. We don’t need much blood; filling tubes to the top line is about 15 drops of blood.
  • Post the samples on the same day you take them, before midday, Monday to Thursday. If you post it any other time it might get to us late or be stuck at a sorting office over the weekend. You will then have to do it again.
  • Package the sample in the same box the kit came in. Otherwise, Royal Mail or DPD will reject it. The sample tubes go into a pouch, then into a cardboard box, and then into a return envelope. All of this is provided in the kit: please use it.

We look forward to receiving your sample in our lab!

Frequently Asked Questions

Hi, I am Lana Nela, Lead Nurse, and here is what we are frequently asked about this test.

Why is the Free Androgen Index important?

The Free Androgen Index tells us how much of the testosterone in your body is "free", or biologically active. It is the active testosterone that produces the effects of testosterone. In some cases, an apparently normal total testosterone level may mask low levels of active testosterone. This means you may be suffering the effects of low testosterone despite your levels appearing normal.

Can women take this test?

Whilst all of these hormones are produced by women, and are important for women, this test is primarily aimed at men. You may be interested in the Female Hormone Blood Test.

Can I take this test if I am using testosterone replacement therapy?

Yes, you can use this test to monitor your response to treatment.

Why take this test?

Hi, I am Dr. Marco Esposito and here is why it's important to take this test.
  • To check your hormone profile
  • To see if your symptoms are due to abnormal hormone levels
  • To analyse your fertility
  • To address concerns about sexual function
