Getting sports hormone test done. Anyone drawn the bloods themselves or with help from partner? What do you normally write on the label when you do it yourself? (Hosp and department section of the label…)

Anyone had issues with medichecks giving results after you’ve done it yourself?

Cheers!

It's made to be done by yourself, just make sure your standing up and warm up your body before hand to get the blood flowing I made the mistake of sitting down and it took forever to fill the tube up had to prick all my fingers 🤣

Any one tried doing a venous blood draw themselves?
I had an Advanced TRT blood sample done this morning by a nurse friend and it looks simple enough, next time i will definately do myself. Hardest part is not allowed to ejaculated for 48 hrs before sample and my nurse mate had to cancel three times before popping in.
Pornhub took a thrashing this afternoon!

I should have mentioned its the more expensive test which requires 2 tubes of blood. Venous draw.

Good to know lol. Seen some good vids on YouTube, will get mrs to help and give it a go. Hopefully I don’t cock it up and waste the £100 😁

It is mainly to do with Prolactin I think, any kind of stress, particularly ejaculation or hard workouts (or both) can make it shoot up - which is why we get so many posts where guys are worried when they register 500+ on the results.

Personally, if I have a stress free 48 hours before venous draw then prolactin comes in at 200-300. If I do anything else then it can hit 700-1000 quite easily.

And yes, after I have paid 40 quid for a venous draw and gone to the hassle of finding, booking and attending a nurse or clinic to do the draw i always think damn this looks so bloody easy, surely if I could buy the kit I could do that myself, not sure if Medichecks or other places would accept it though.

I have read on other threads that if you cocked up your sample then Medicheck would send you a new test kit free of charge. If it was a genuine mistake. It’s the lab testing and analysis that costs the money.

I thought exactly the same thing this morning watching my nurse friend draw my blood. I wouldn’t think they’d know any different.

If you can stick needle in your butt you can stick needle into vein. Drawing venous samples my self, first time had someone with me just in case, now its just piece of cake. Wake up shower then drawing blood most accurate test is venous one. Watch youtube tutorials and youll be fine.

Bro I've got the same kit sat here, not been grumpy enough to hurt myself with it yet lmfao, I'm sure it'll be a bit of a challenge just to click the damn things, but once you have, squeezing the blood out will probably be ok, just gotta do the click prick thing first enit 🤦‍♂️😂 I know exactly how you feel, do it after your next injection whilst you still got that badman feeling lol

This is what I always try to explain to people, jabbing a muscle is easy, but veins are scary 😂😂 I never had an issue with IM, but IV scares me, that's REAL, injecting lol
