It takes an amazing amount of blood. I never could get enough to fill the vial despite mutilating the ends of all my fingers.Read more
Seemed easy to do but I had trouble getting enough blood to fill the vials. I found it almost impossible and it took hours and I only had a few drops. You are suppose to fill up the whole tube but my fingers only had tiny drops. It was impossible. I ended up using a lancet to hit a vein in my arm. It was bloody but it filled up fast. You have to schedule ups pickup or drop it off the same day you take the sample. After ALL that hassle, they said they sent my sample to the wrong lab on “accident”!!! I had to call them and was put on hold for a half hour and they finally agreed to send out another kit but after the trouble getting blood I don’t think I even want to try again.Read more
This is the 2nd blood test I’ve done through this company. They’re thorough with quick, accurate results. But their customer service is lacking! I had no trouble with my first test (a1c) but this time UPS did t pick up per the schedule. I was left wondering what to do with my almost day old blood. The website says they have 24/7 customer service. Nope. At 7pm the phone lines were closed. At 8:30am the next morning, also closed. I emailed and got a response about 10 hours later. How is that 24/7 customer service?? The reply to my email was canned. It was zero help. So I called again at 9am. The website doesn’t have hours on it, it claims they have 24/7 customer support and 3am-12am (EST) nursing support… I got thru at 9am and was promptly hung up on. I got thru again, and this time someone was finally helpful. They explained that the blood is good for 4-5 days and it wasn’t too late for me to get it to UPS myself since UPS didn’t show up the day they were suppose to. Why couldn’t that information be on the website? Or email? I was worried a $100 test was down the drain. Another problem with their customer service is that the directions included in this test are EXACTLY the same as the a1c test I took from them. There is NOTHING in the box that tells you to do this on the 3rd day of your cycle (AKA 2 days after your cycle starts). You also have to collect blood before 10am. The instructions in the box do tell you that you need to activate your test before you collect blood and the online instructions do tell (clearly) to collect blood before 10am on the 3rd day of your cycle. Not all women know what that day is, some of us assume that our cycles start after a period but the first day of your cycle is the first day of your period. I also wish that the website activation would give you a link to the UPS pick up schedule. You have to schedule a pick up (the next day air label is already prepaid and included in the box). It would be very easy for them to link to UPS at the end of activation. But they don’t bother to. You have to go back to the paper directions to find the website address, type it in, and schedule the pick up. Another benefit to them linking to UPS might be that they could confirm you scheduled a pick up. Another issue I have is that they will only allow you to collect blood on a Mon-Thursday. Because they need 1-2 days to process your blood, and not longer. What happens if the 3rd day of your cycle falls on a Fri, Sat or Sunday?? Nothing in the online or paper directions explain that. So I would normally assume you just have to wait another month to test. But then the guy I talked to on the phone said blood is good for 4-5 days… so who knows. Thankfully my cycle started on a Sunday and I was able to test the first month I got this. I didn’t ask customer service about what would happen if my 3rd day was a Saturday, because they already weren’t overly helpful with what I really needed to know. For the test itself, they provide a collection tube and 4 lances. There’s two alcohol wipes and some bandaids. The a1c test I did with this company had a smaller blood collection area that I was easily able to fill with just one finger stick. This tube is larger. I needed 2 finger sticks and I thought I was going to have to do 3. But I made it by “milking” my finger carefully. I’ve never had a female hormone test done before, so I can’t really speak to the accuracy of my results. But I can say that with the A1C, I had the same test done by a doctor 2 weeks later and my results were only 0.1 difference between the two. I’m sure that’s normal lab differences. So I trust this test as being accurate.Read more

I couldn’t be any more satisfied with this entire process! It was quick and easy. Step 1 – Register online using the instructions provided with the kit. Step 2 – Obtain blood sample using the included lancet. The vial you need to fill might require two finger pricks. Four lancets are included. Step 3 – Mail sample in the postage-paid envelope. Step 4 – Click the link in your email once your results are ready. I placed my sample into a UPS drop box for 5pm pickup on a Tuesday. Less than 48 hours later, I had an email with my results. It just doesn’t get any easier than this!Read more
Okay so I can’t rate this based on how well I thought the results reflected my state of health because I was unsuccessful with gathering a blood sample all FOUR times I tried… For some reason, I didn’t think about being dehydrated since it was in the morning when they tell you to take your sample… Take it that morning, and ship it the same day…. I thought maybe I was just cold, so I took my shower then tried again, and it still didn’t work…. So I tried the running of the arms under hot water, and it still didn’t work…. I was persistent trying because I already scheduled a pickup with USPS and they were supposed to be here sometime that day. As far as the company goes, it works a little differently than Everlywell if you’ve ever tried their tests but I feel like this company is a little more thorough as far as how they explain what to do and how to get the most accurate result. I’m bummed it didn’t work but I’d definitely be willing to try again, and from the experience I did have, I can recommend them as a sound company… Just drink a lot of water the night before and in the morning if you think you might have issues…Read more
This test is pretty straight forward and results are delivered in a reasonably timely manner – so I don’t overall have too many complaints there. I just find this to be quite a bit pricier than other brand names that do the same thing, so I’m not sure I can vouch for this being the best value overall. I had a bit of an issue with getting enough blood – but I managed it OK in the end. I like that you can do this in the comfort of your own home to get results that ordinarily would require a Dr. visit, so that’s a nice bonus – especially as many women encounter dismissive doctors who won’t order the correct tests in the first place. It’s nice to have a little more info and control for yourself – but it certainly doesn’t take the place of a real doctor. This is the kind of test that is nice to use and take the results with you to discuss with your doctor should results come back regarding an imbalance. Depending on what you’re looking for, YMMV.Read more
