Blood sample collection options

Finger prick kit (FREE)

All our kits require a finger prick blood sample which is quick and easy to do at home. But if you don't like the idea of squeezing blood out of your finger, here are some other options:

A home visit by a nurse (+£60)

Have a nurse visit you at home to take your blood sample from your vein. The kit will come with everything the nurse needs to do the blood sample collection. Once you've placed your order, we'll be in touch to arrange an appointment.

Visit a clinic (+£45)

You can visit one of our partner clinics to have a nurse take a blood sample from your vein. Select this option at checkout where you can also see which clinics are near you. Once you've placed your order, we'll send you an email to arrange your appointment.

Organise a nurse myself (FREE)

If none of the above options work for you, you can arrange your own medical professional to collect your sample. There is no additional charge for this. Once you've ordered your test, we'll send you everything you and your chosen medical professional will need to collect a sample and post it back to our labs.

You can choose your blood sample collection method in the checkout. Learn more about sample collection.

Info Gold

When to take the test

If you’re having a regular period, collect your sample on day 3 of your menstrual cycle (day 1 being the first day of your period), otherwise take the test at any time. Take within 3 hours of waking.

IMPORTANT: To avoid contamination, use a different hand than the one you applied hormone gel/cream with for your blood sample.

Benefits of Blood Testing for Cyclists

Improve Cycling Performance

Take your cycling performance to the next level with biomarker testing tailored to female cyclists. Our blood test measures key indicators that influence your endurance, strength, and recovery capabilities. Learn about your body's unique responses to training, nutrition, and stress, and optimise your training approach to improve your cycling performance.

Optimise Recovery and Prevent Injury

Prevent overtraining by understanding your cortisol levels. Cortisol, a stress hormone, can hinder recovery and increase the risk of injuries. Our test provides insights into cortisol levels, enabling you to tailor your training schedule around rest and recovery for the best results.

Fine-tune Your Nutrition

Our female cyclist blood test evaluates essential nutrient levels, including iron, B12 and vitamin D, ensuring you're properly replenishing your body with the right foods. With this information, refine your diet to optimise energy, prevent fatigue, and support recovery.

Understand Your Hormones

Discover how your hormones influence your cycling performance. Our test measures key hormones like oestradiol and testosterone that impact muscle strength, endurance, and recovery. Understanding your hormonal profile empowers you to make informed decisions about training intensity, nutrition, and recovery, as well as helping you prevent RED-S (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport).

Used by professional Athletes

As an endurance athlete I know how easy it is to tip the balance from training and pushing your limits by ‘over-reaching’, to over training and having the potential to be injured. This is where MyFORM® has really been able to help. Tracking my hormones over my entire menstrual cycle has enabled me see the impact my training is having and avoid putting stress on my body resulting in a loss of periods.

Having regular testing with Edge twice saved my season in 2019 by identifying biochemical issues before they put me out of action completely. I’d highly recommend regular testing for any high performance athlete.
