Details
Who should take the test?

Our Prolactin Test is recommended for women who exhibit symptoms suggestive of prolactin imbalance, such as irregular menstrual cycles, unexplained milk production, or challenges conceiving. Additionally, it is suitable for women who are concerned about the function of their pituitary gland or wish to monitor their hormone levels for overall health.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Test measures
For the Prolactin Test we analyze:
  • Prolactin
Prolactin

Prolactin, primarily produced in the pituitary gland, serves a pivotal role not only in breastfeeding but also in various physiological processes for both sexes. While it influences fertility and menstrual function in women, it can impact sexual health in men.

Elevated prolactin levels, known as hyperprolactinemia, can lead to irregular menstrual cycles, amenorrhea, and galactorrhea in women, affecting fertility assessments. In men, high levels may cause decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and occasionally galactorrhea. Elevated levels can stem from factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, stress, or medications, yet may also signal conditions like prolactinomas. Conversely, low prolactin levels are typically benign.

Testing through a home-to-lab method is straightforward and beneficial for women experiencing menstrual or fertility issues, individuals with pituitary disorder symptoms, and men with sexual health concerns. However, results should be evaluated within the broader health context, and consultation with healthcare professionals is essential for comprehensive understanding and appropriate action. Regular monitoring of prolactin levels can significantly contribute to maintaining hormonal balance and overall well-being.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
