If the test result is abnormal, we can help you to organise a more advanced follow-up test.
What happens next?
The lab sends the results to your personal dashboard, with comments from both a doctor and a nutritionist. If results are abnormal, we recommend seeing a doctor and, if appropriate, booking an appointment with a Nordic Wellth nutrition lifestyle specialist.
Follow your health practitioner’s guidance on the correct day to take this test. No other advance preparation is needed for this test.
If the purpose is to evaluate your fertility, this test should be taken on day 3 (or at least between days 2-5). A woman’s menstrual cycle is measured from the first day of her period (blood flow, not spotting), so cycle day 3 is the third day of her period.
