Frequently Asked Questions
How long are saliva samples stable for?
Saliva samples are stable for up to 1-2 weeks when stored at room temperature with no exposure to direct sunlight. We recommend that you mail your saliva samples the same day they are collected, however if that’s not possible they can be frozen until you are ready to ship.
How much saliva do I need to collect for this test?
To ensure the lab has enough sample to provide the most accurate results, all tubes should be filled at least 1/2 way but preferably 3/4 of the way filled, excluding any bubbles.
Are there any additional fees after I purchase my HealthConfirm Home Test Kit?
For those located within the United States, there are no additional lab or shipping fees once you purchase your test. All lab fees are included in the cost of the test and your kit will come with a pre-paid 2 day shipping label for returning your sample to the lab.
How long will it take to receive my results and how will I receive them once they are ready?
Results for our saliva tests typically take approximately 3-5 business days to process once received at the lab. Blood spot and dried urine samples typically take approximately 5-7 business days to process. Once your results are ready, you will receive an email with instructions detailing how to view them in your secure online account.
Do I need to stop my current hormone therapy before taking a hormone test?
No, there are optimal times to perform the test when using hormone therapy, for example: 12-24 hours after last dose of topical gels, 1-2 days after applying a patch or 6-10 hours after taking progesterone pills (including birth control pills), however you do not need to stop taking any hormone supplements.
I suffer from dry mouth – do you have any suggestions as to how I can increase my saliva production?
To increase saliva flow, you can try things like pressing the tip of your tongue against your teeth, smelling strong smelling foods like lemons or yawning.
What are some tips to make my blood spot collection easier?
To encourage blood flow, you can try the following tricks:
- Running your hands under warm water and/or rubbing hands together
- Swinging your arms before pricking your finger
- Making sure your hand is below your waist before you begin collection to make your blood flow easier
I am nervous to prick my finger – will it hurt?
The lancets provided with your test kit give a quick and nearly painless finger prick, however if nervousness is an issue, you may ask someone such as your healthcare provider or friend to help you. Once you’ve completed the first finger prick, the rest will be easier.
What time of the month should I collect my sample?
Men may collect samples any day of the month. For women, if you have a normal menstrual cycle, collect on Day 19, 20 or 21 of your cycle. If you have an irregular or unpredictable cycle then you may collect on any day that you’re not bleeding or 5 days before your expected period. If you have no menstrual cycle at all, you may collect on any day of the month.
My test results came back outside of the normal ranges. what should I do now?
If your test results come back abnormal, it’s best to consult your physician to review your report with them.
Weight Management Home Test Kit
What panels does your weight management profile test for?
Our weight management profile tests for Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA-S, Diurnal Cortisol, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Vitamin D and HbA1c levels.
How can a thyroid disorder affect weight gain?
If you have hypothyroidism, often referred to as an under active thyroid, it may slow down your metabolism in turn making it more difficult to lose weight. Our test measures your levels of TSH, also known as Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, to give you a better idea of how your thyroid is functioning.
How is this test performed?
Our weight management test kit is a combination of 4 saliva samples (collected throughout one day) as well as a dried blood spot sample (performed using a simple finger prick).
PSA Home Test Kit
What does PSA stand for?
PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen which is a protein produced by the prostate gland. Knowing your PSA levels will give you an overall idea of your prostate health. Elevated levels of PSA may be an indication of early stage prostate cancer.
What are some symptoms of elevated PSA levels?
Symptoms of elevated PSA levels may include things like:
- Increased frequency of urination
- Pain or burning with urination
- Blood in semen or urine
- Frequent pain in lower back, hips or upper thighs
Who should test their PSA levels?
Men with a family history of prostate cancer should begin performing regular PSA screenings at the age of 40. Men with no family history of prostate cancer and those with lower risk factors should consider beginning routine testing around the age of 50.
Menopause Hormone Test Kit
How does menopause effect the body?
Menopause may cause a shift in the balance of certain hormones, especially estrogen and progesterone. When estrogen gets too high or progesterone gets too low, this causes an imbalance called estrogen dominance.
What are some symptoms of menopause?
Symptoms of menopause may include:
- Night Sweats or Hot Flashes
- Irregular Menstruation or Complete Absence of Menstruation
- Loss of Hair
- Dry Skin
- Reduced Sex Drive
Should I avoid using over-the-counter anti-aging cream before I test?
Yes, you should discontinue use of anti-wrinkle creams for at least 3 days before collection. You may substitute with moisturizing creams that are safe for infants during those 3 days.
