    thats very unusual ..there usually super quick.
    i got mine done saturday morning, and got the results emailed to me
    sunday around noon--- yeap about 24 hrs later.

    maybe your labcorp is being lazy...lol
    give it another day or two.. if not, call privatemd and have them check on it for you

    i ended up getting an email friday, i talked to privatemd labs and they said the free testosterone test that i ordered is what took so long.

    Oh nice...good to know at least

  7. I had labcorp do a total/free test today, and was told 1-2 days as well. Does it ALWAYS take 5 days or so if you want FREE test done?

  8. Question about fasting, I know that a fast is required for a CMP to get accurate blood glucose results, but I don't think that result is important here, so is there any other reason to fast? I'm starving and I have to ride my bicycle 10 miles to get the test so I would strongly prefer to be able to eat.

  9. How important is free test? I'm thinking of just getting the female panel, and nor adding anything else.

  10. need help finding june discount code for my follow up blood work.

  12. quick question...when I am entering my info....if I say I'm a male will that mess anything up on their end since I'm getting a female hormone panel?....sorry if this has already been answered before I skimmed over a few pages and didn't see anything.

  13. Nope, this is my second time going. Never had a problem

    No issue, the female hormonal panel just tells them what to test for, it is no different on a male. They will still ref range you correctly.
    Just inject.

    Until my arms turn purple from needlesticks lol. Been there, not tryin to go back. One every week/two weeks is fine if your on lots of supps or prepping for a competition. You dont see drastic changes daily unless youre in ICU.

    Ha, to me weekly testing is often, that is what I meant. Would be great for on cycle, especially for advanced estrogen control.

  19. This is really good info. Just ordered my panel minutes ago. Coupon XB49W8 works for 15% and has been an active coupon for 2 years..

    Thank goodness! I'm prepping my body for a long and heavy cycle soon and really need more than just a "seat of the pants" feel for my hormone levels..

  20. Does anyone know if PrivateMD labs accepts out-of-country (Canadian) Visa or Mastercard?

  21. This is really great! Question though, in my email it states that is someone is using Testosterone Cream that it shouldnt be used for 24 hour prior.

    For those who are testing on cycle do you continue business as usual right before testing?

  22. I am ok with getting the female > the male version since it is cheaper. I am ok with only getting total testosterone and not free. I am happy that the female version has LH and FSH.

    BUT, i have heard that the estradiol, sensative (in the male panel) is better than the estradiol, serum (in the female panel).

    do you guys feel that estradiol, serum is legit?

    I have heard of Canadians using it. i dont remember the exact forum that I read it, but they had to call the customer service and they fudged his address or something

  24. Just tried this the other day, worked great. Payed and printed the paperwork, walked in with no appointment and had my blood drawn within 5 minutes. By the time I woke up the next day I already had the results emailed to me.

  25. That's pretty much how it went for me as well.

    And really, I feel like if I know my total test, LH and FSH production, and total estradiol..I can figure out whether or not if my free test is well and I can also figure out which part of my HPTA is broken (if any)...

    However, I'd love to get a cholesterol count attached to this female test. That'd be awesome! I'd have everything I truly care about monitoring then..

  26. Yup.. lipids are expensive. There is an option to have them done also i believe buts its pricey.. but if youre really concerned about them I guess its the best choice.
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.

  27. if i want to test to see if the hgh i have is legit what do i test? i have been told to test for igf-1 because hgh raises your igf-1 levels but then i was looking around on the blood work website and found an option for human growth hormone and its $10 cheaper then the igf-1 test.

    sounds like u answered ur own question lol

  29. Not sure about HGH. Its "growth hormone" endogenously and I always remember hearing in sports that it cant be tested for.. thats why so many atheletes use it.

  30. Just received my results today. Had test done yesterday. I'm a 30 year old, 160lb. male who is moderately active and work out 3-4 days a week. I work shift work and have terrible sleeping habits which may have something to do with the low t readings. My dad was also diagnosed with low t when he was in his early 40's...
    Anyway, my concerns are the following:
    BUN/Creatinine Ratio 20
    Estradiol 5.8
    Testosterone, Serum 137

    Would anyone care to explain these numbers to me and what I should do next?
    I'd appreciate it!
