5 Best At-Home Kits for Hormone Testing

Caitlin ClementJuly 27, 20225 minute read

At-home testing has grown in popularity over the last couple of years with advertisements everywhere from TikTok to the local pharmacy. So, with so many out there, how do you know which ones aren’t a total waste of your money?

Great news! We went ahead and did the research for you. In this blog, you’ll learn why you might want to take a hormone test and the five best companies to use when shopping around.

What we look for

Test variety: We look at the types and the amount of hormones tested for each kit. Testing for more hormones can give a better picture of overall health.

Fast results: Are results returned back in a timely manner?

Medical support: Access to board-certified providers and clinicians is important when dealing with lab results. Patients often have questions about what certain results may mean and next steps to take.

Value-for-money: Most insurance companies won’t cover these kits. So affordability is important when looking at overall access and potential financial barriers.

Why test your hormones?

There are a couple of reasons why someone would want to test their hormones. First, let’s talk about what hormones do. Hormones are the body's chemical messengers sending signals to the bloodstream and tissues. If certain hormone levels are too high or too low it could affect growth, metabolism, reproduction and even your mood, among other things.

So, why test hormones? Knowing where your hormone levels are at could help explain why you’ve been feeling so…bleh. On the other hand, maybe your goal is preventative care. In either case, these results should be shared with your primary care provider during your next physical.

Alright, we’ve kept you waiting long enough. Here are the five best at-home hormone test kits on the market.
