Instructions included with this kit.
Yes, but the following information should be taken into account. Hormone medication such as DHEAs, progesterone and estrogens known as bio-identical hormones, will interfere with the test results no matter what form they are used in. The results will reveal your current levels. If you are either starting or ceasing HRT ie: cream, gel, troche, pessary, it is recommended that you wait 3 to 4 days before using the TestoChecker Kit.
If using hormonal birth control, such as oral contraceptives, then the sex hormones will be suppressed to prevent ovulation. This means that the timing of hormone testing can occur at any time. If oral contraceptives are ceased it is recommended to wait until the second cycle before testing sex hormone levels.
Testing can occur at any time of the month. If using topical (applied to the skin) HRT or supplementation, saliva testing should not occur on the same day as this may give false results.
