Testosterone blood test


  • Results within 24 hours

  • Blood draw included

Do you have symptoms of low testosterone such as reduced sex drive, low mood, erectile dysfunction or weakness? If so, you may benefit from having your testosterone levels tested at our walk-in clinic. Testosterone plays a key role in the reproduction, growth, and maintenance of a healthy body. Knowing if you testosterone levels are too low is the first step in understanding if treatment is right for you. Insufficient levels of testosterone in men may lead to abnormalities including frailty, loss of sexual drive and bone loss. If you're on testosterone replacement therapy, this test can also tell you whether your hormone levels are still within normal limits. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or if you just want to know your testosterone levels then this test is for you. The ideal time to take this test is between 0700 and 1000 when the testosterone levels are at the peak.

What does the test result indicate?

The test can diagnose conditions related to abnormally low or high testosterone levels, and can be used to monitor testosterone replacement therapy. Low testosterone levels can indicate hypothalamic or pituitary disease, or potential damage that has lead to decreased testosterone production. In women it can be an indicator of PCOS, and ovarian or adrenal gland tumours.

When should a test be taken?

Testosterone blood tests are typically recommended for men if the following are suspected:

  • Infertility
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction

For women it can be requested if:

  • Irregular or no periods
  • Suspected PCOS
  • Suspected tumours
  • Difficulty getting pregnant

Can women take this test?

Yes, both sexes have the testosterone hormone, and women do produce testosterone but at a far lower rate than men, it can still have an impact on the health of an individual if the testosterone is abnormal.

In women the test can be conducted to investigate potential polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), one of the leading causes of infertility.
