    These guys are the best. Quest with insurance was triple the price on the same labs. Never using quest or insurance again for any labs..

    I asked about testing in another state. This is the response I recieved from privatemdlabs:

    The Phlebotomist are instructed by LabCorp to ask for ID at which point being a resident of NY they should not collect your specimen. Residents of NY cannot use our requisitions for lab testing in other states either.
    This really sucks. I don't even have insurance, I wonder how many hundreds upon hundreds of dollars in will cost to get tested here. Maybe even a thousand?

    Maybe check NJ? They don't ask for any kind of ID in Michigan. Just a thought.

    If you get the female panel through private md labs, it must not include liver values. Any ideas on how to get these? Am I missing something?

    Yes, put that 15% off coupon in there too and I think it ends up being about $40-50. Can't remember exact number. Make sure you fast and try to take the bloods 2 full days after your last training session, as torn and recovering muscles will cause a rise in liver values and skew results.

    ID


    You will either be asked for ID or you won't, so if you are, you need a form of ID that doesn't list your address, i.e. a passport.

    I have always been asked for my ID (two separate locations), and the phlebotomist has never batted an eye at my passport.

    Sorry I wasn't a bit more clear in my post. I was writing in response to some of the earlier posts in which there was concern about residing in a non-participating state.

    Guys, thanks for making this thread. I've been having some issues. Recently I've been wondering if I have low testosterone. I saw this thread when googling around and went and got a blood test done. Sure enough its low. I know that should be bad news but its a relief to know what my problem has been and its treatable.

    Now I just need to find a doctor who won't bust my balls over using these results. I can't afford a bunch of doctor's visits and trips to quest diagnostic.

    I'll treat this one way or the other.

    Really, I can't thank you enough guys.

    I know this tread has been going for a while and it is great to see. But I have noticed some confusion about the test and price. It really isn't a "loophole". Yes, it the package is called "Female Hormone Testing" but it is just the name for the group of tests. The price is based on the number and type of tests. You can see this when you go through some of the male testing menus which state "females ordering this male testing package will not betested for PSA". So, they know that people are just ordering the package that best fits them, regardless of name. I start and end my cycle with the Male Hormone Testing, which is more expensive, but then use the "Female Hormone Testing" during the cycle to see how things are progressing. If I thing there may be an issue, I would think of ordering something additional (like the Thyroid TSH, Cholesterol, or Liver). But this really makes no excuse for not keeping close watch of what is happening in my body.

    How would one go about it if they have 100% medical. That would be my cheapest route, like what would I say to the doctor? haha

    You don't need this then. Just go to your Dr and tell them exactly what bloodwork you want and be clear you want the actual results.

    Although, if you go that route, your results will be on your medical file. If an issues arises, it will then be a preexisting condition. Atleast, I believe...

    How useful could Free Test (or SHBG) be if you happen to get yourself into a situation where you had recovery issues after cycling?

    I'm really stuck on "Hormone Panel with F&T Testosterone & SHBG" + "Lipid" vs "Hormonal Panel for Females" + "Lipid". The Female is like $100 cheaper.

    Edit: Decided to get the full deal, since it is my baseline. 15% code, came to $173.XX for "Hormone Panel with F&T Testosterone & SHBG" + "Lipid"

    Either get the male or female panel. Female if u just want to see if ur bouncing back from PCT as hoped or male panel if u need to troubleshoot.

    Female panel hits everything on a high level. Male panel is more comprehensive but costs 3 times as much. Be sure an use the 15% discount at the beginning of this thread.

    I'm so happy they finally put a center near my home.

    First time I used this I had to drive two hours away from my house.

    If you have one of these reasonably close, you're a fool for not using it.

    Getting bloodwork done, whether it be on-cycle or post-cycle, is always strongly recommended when running any type of AAS cycle. However, many people often neglect to do this based on cost, and the fact that a doctor visit is usually required.

    Here is how to get bloodwork done very cheaply by scheduling your blood panel on-line, without going to the doctor, and without the need for medical insurance. The testing will be done by Labcorp, so as long as you can get to a Labcorp office, you can use this option. There is a trick to getting this done cheaply, so read on.

    ***Please note that this option will not work in NY, NJ, or RI due to state medical billing laws***

    "Here is the trick. Go to privatemdlabs.com and select the hormone panel for females. This test comes with a CMP (liver, kidney values and more), CBC (blood counts), total Testosterone, total Estrogen, LH and FSH.

    I have done this a few times before and all your reference ranges come back based on males once you enter in all the info that the lab co wants.

    Also use the discount code ______ (search internet for current discount codes, can usually find a 15% off). Total should come to roughly 50 dollars.

    They use labcorp so just select a location nearest you. You can also make an appointment to have blood drawn, which many people don't know. Just go to their website (labcorp) to do so after you paid for the bloodwork.

    If you go on a weekday (except friday) you will have your results emailed to you the next day most likely as they are that fast as effff!!!!

    The only thing missing is a lipid profile, which you could add on if you so choose.

    So STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR NOT GETTING BLOODWORK DONE!!!!!!!!! You most likely won't be able to beat this price even if you do have insurance!!!!

    So take advantage of the loophole I found as the male hormonal panel costs about 150 dollars!!!!!"


    - Credit to user "heavydeadlifts" on PHF.

    For $50 lousy bucks, you can get everything you'd want tested after a cycle (except lipids, which as mentioned can be added for $47.99 retail, before discounts): liver and kidney function, HPTA, estrogen, etc.

    I have not used this service myself, unfortunately, as I live in NY. However, a well-known AM member has and will weigh in with his experience soon.

    So no more excuses, no more guessing at problems during PCT, no more self-medicating without medical confirmation of an issue; if you are mature enough to cycle, then be mature enough to protect your health.

    This coupon code: JTRDD547X reduces the cost more than the other one btw



    Hey guys, New Member, found this thread from google and I am finally going to wise up and get my bloods...

    As far as a baseline (this will be my fourth cycle) should I get anything besides Hormone Panel with F&T Testosterone & SHBG" + "Lipid" ,

    Also should I get a during cycle Bloodwork or just during PCT?

    I will be using Tren for the first time so I want to be as careful as possible.



    Might as well get some STD testing while I'm at it lol
