About the test

The day 3 fertility blood test can actually be taken at any point between days 2 and 4 of your cycle (where day 1 is the first day of your period).

In this test we test for 3 key hormones: follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinising hormone (LH), and oestrogen (oestradiol). We test at this time in the cycle because this gives us a "baseline" reading of your hormone levels which gives us an indication of your ovarian reserve. At this time in the cycle both FSH and oestrogen should be low.

High levels of FSH in particular suggest there may be a problem with ovarian reserve. LH is also usually low at this point in the cycle, high or low levels may suggest irregular ovulation patterns.

There are a wide range of medical conditions and nutritional deficiencies that may reduce your chance of conceiving naturally, or may impact on the outcome of you pregnancy. Furthermore, pregnancy and childbirth put enormous stresses on the female body and so it is helpful to ensure that you are in optimum health not just to conceive, but so that you and your baby remain healthy through the pregnancy.

With our free Health Dashboard tool online, you can track your biomarkers over time and compare your results with previous ones. This feature provides a clear understanding of how your health is progressing and helps you make better-informed decisions about your well-being and any improvement on the fertility biomarkers.

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.

Elevated levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are indicative of potential issues with a woman's ovarian reserve. FSH is a hormone released by the pituitary gland in response to low estrogen levels, signaling the ovaries to produce more eggs. High FSH levels typically suggest that the ovaries are not responding adequately to the hormone, which may be due to a reduced number of remaining follicles or decreased egg quality. This can be a concern for women trying to conceive, as it may make it more challenging to become pregnant.

Monitoring FSH levels through blood tests can help diagnose fertility issues and guide appropriate treatment options.

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 Day 3 Fertility Blood Test.

This test should be taken as close to 9am as possible, between day 2 to 5 of your cycle, where day 1 is the first day of your period.

You should take this test after any symptoms of a short term illness have settled.

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 Day 3 Fertility 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!
