Testosterone is an androgen (male sex) hormone produced in men. It has an important role in male health.
Testosterone levels change throughout a person’s life and usually starts to decline steadily after the age of 40. Testosterone levels will also go up and down during the day, usually being higher in the morning and decreasing during the day.
If you want to check your levels, you can order a test kit from Superdrug Online Doctor. Complete a short questionnaire and place your order which can then be sent to your preferred address, or you can collect it from a Superdrug store. If your testosterone level is borderline or low a repeat test is recommended after 4 weeks and you would need to see your GP or a specialist if you wanted to start testosterone replacement therapy.
A testosterone test kit will check the levels of the male hormone ‘testosterone’ in your blood. This means that you’ll need to take some of your blood using a finger prick device called a lancet. You’ll then need to send your sample to our partner lab for testing.
You can take your sample easily at home in a few simple steps:
wash your hands with water and soap and dry them well
clean your fingertip with the swab provided in the test box (we advise you to choose a finger on your non-dominant hand: the one you don’t write with)
twist and remove the purple stick from one lancet, place it in the middle of your fingertip, and press the purple button at the end
a small drop of blood should appear
wipe the first drop away with a clean tissue
massage your fingertip to make a second drop of blood
use your other hand to squeeze your fingertip and drop your blood into the collection tube
repeat and fill the tube to the upper line
cover your fingertip with the plaster that comes in the test kit
put the lid on the collection tube and twist it several times to close it tightly
write your details on the collection tube
put the collection tube into the protective wallet, and then place this into the prepaid envelope
post your sample and wait for your results
take the test between 7am and 11am and do not have anything to eat or drink (except water) from midnight the night before (unless you have been told by a doctor you should not fast or are diabetic).
if you are unwell delay the test until you feel better as illness can affect the results.
Don’t worry if you have trouble getting the blood sample on your first try, or if you need more blood to fill up the collection tube. In the box you’ll find three lancets, so you can try again with another finger.
Your results should be available in your account within 2 or 3 days of the lab receiving your sample. In the results you’ll see the level of total testosterone found in your blood, along with advice from a Superdrug doctor on what to do next.
Your results can be checked against the normal range of testosterone levels in men. If you’re a man aged between 19 and 39 years, your testosterone level should be over 12 nmol/L (nanomoles per litre). If your testosterone level is lower than 8 nmol/L it’s counted as being testosterone deficient. Between 8 and 12 nmol/L your level is described as “borderline”. Sometimes these ranges can vary slightly depending on the laboratory that processes your sample. If your result is low or borderline it is recommended you repeat the test after at least 4 weeks and see your GP for further tests to find out the cause of your borderline or low testosterone level. Depending on whether you’re having symptoms and whether you wish to have children in the future, your doctor may refer you to a specialist for a trial of treatment.
If your levels of testosterone are too low (lower than 12nmol/L), a repeat test is recommended after 4 weeks. If the second test confirms that your testosterone levels are still low, you may need to be referred to a specialist by your GP to start treatment with testosterone replacement therapy. If you have seen a specialist and are already taking testosterone replacement therapy, and have been receiving treatment for a year, then you can place an order for a repeat prescription through our service.
If a test shows that your testosterone levels are in the normal range for your age, testosterone replacement therapy isn’t recommended and you will need to look into other possible causes of your symptoms.
Other possible causes of erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, fatigue, or weight gain can include mood disorders like anxiety and depression, or stress caused by a certain situation at home or work. In some cases your doctor may advise you to modify your lifestyle to improve your symptoms, including:
If you are already receiving testosterone treatment we can offer a convenient continuation service to order it online. If you haven’t been treated for low testosterone before, you’ll need to consult your GP first.
No. Even though testosterone is linked to fertility, checking your testosterone levels is not a reliable way to test your fertility. A male fertility test usually includes checking other things related to the quality of your sperm like:
the number of sperm
the shape of the sperm
the movement of the sperm
Sperm cells are responsible for fertilising an egg. If your sperm count drops in number, mobility, or they have the wrong shape, they’ll be less able to fertilise an egg. Male infertility can be related to a lot of different things and lifestyle changes can help improve many of them. If you think you could be infertile, you should talk to your GP. They will be able to arrange a semen analysis for you and tell you the best ways to improve your fertility.
