About Testosterone

Testosterone is commonly thought of as a “male sex hormone," and certainly male characteristics are the result of testosterone production in the body. However, women also produce testosterone and need healthy levels of it for hormone balance. From libido to facial hair to muscle mass to voice depth to energy levels and more, this sex hormone is vital for both younger and older men, and low levels of testosterone or “low T,” may cause troubling health challenges.

For those men who are interested in understanding their testosterone levels, we offer an at-home testosterone panel as well as other lab tests like the Men’s Health Test and the Metabolism Test.


How to test testosterone levels?

You can check testosterone levels with an at-home test or at a clinic. The Everlywell at-home test uses a saliva sample that you collect in the morning by spitting in a tube that comes with the kit. You then mail the sample to a lab and get your results online. Testosterone testing at a clinic usually involves a blood draw from a vein in your arm (known as a serum testosterone test).

The Everlywell testosterone level test helps you check your free testosterone from the convenience of home

This testosterone panel is affordable and reliable. It is a first step in understanding why you may be experiencing symptoms of high or low testosterone. Both younger and older men and women can check free testosterone levels with this at-home test (you must be age 18 or above to take this test).

Your results will provide detailed information on whether your testosterone level is normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. If you’re experiencing signs and symptoms of low hormone levels, sharing your test results with your health care provider can help them recommend possible next steps to take.

Your results from this testosterone level test will include evidence-based guidance about lifestyle changes you can make that can positively impact your testosterone and—more importantly—your health. It's always a great idea to share your results with your doctor, and this testosterone panel gives you a head start.

How It Works: the Everlywell At-Home Testosterone Levels Test

Wondering how to test for low testosterone levels from the convenience of home? The Everlywell at-home testosterone level test is an easy, convenient way to check in on your T levels. The test uses a sample of your saliva (not blood, also known as serum) to determine your body’s level of free testosterone – the type of testosterone that’s biologically active and able to regulate metabolism and other functions in your cells.


How to Test Testosterone Levels at Home

Here’s how to check testosterone levels at home with the Everlywell Testosterone Test:

(1) Once the testosterone test kit arrives, you’ll wait until morning to collect your saliva sample. This is because salivary testosterone levels fall throughout the day (by as much as 50%!), so the saliva sample needs to be collected within 30 minutes of waking.

(2) To collect your sample, you’ll simply spit into a tube that comes with the kit. Then you’ll use a prepaid shipping label – also included with the kit – to send the sample to a lab for analysis.

(3) Once the lab has analyzed your sample, you can view your test results on our secure, online portal.

How much does a testosterone test cost?

The cost of a testosterone test depends on a number of factors—like whether you’re getting tested at a clinic or at home.

If you get tested at a clinic or lab, prices can range from about $80 to several hundred dollars.

The Everlywell at-home Testosterone Test is $59—including shipping. There are no hidden fees: we’re committed to transparent pricing for all tests we offer. Plus, we can provide itemized receipts for the test you order—which you can submit to your HSA/FSA benefits coordinator for reimbursement.


What’s the difference between a testosterone blood test and a saliva test?

Both blood tests and saliva tests are well-established techniques for clinically measuring testosterone levels in men and women. But there are a few differences between these two testing methods:

  • Sample type - Testosterone is circulated throughout your body by the bloodstream, and a fraction of it enters your saliva. Blood tests measure testosterone levels in a sample of blood, but saliva tests use a sample of saliva.
  • Collection process - Blood samples are often collected through a blood draw (venipuncture), while saliva samples are often much easier to collect: you just spit into a tube, for example.
  • Units of measure - Blood tests use nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Saliva tests (like the Everlywell Testosterone Test) use picograms per milliliter (pg/mL). For comparison, 1 ng/dL = 10 pg/mL, so the numerical results from two different tests that use different types of samples (and different units of measurement) will look completely different. It doesn’t mean either test is inaccurate.

So how is testosterone measured by this test?

The Everlywell at-home Testosterone Test uses a saliva sample – not a blood sample – and reports results in picograms per milliliter (pg/mL). This test measures your free testosterone levels, instead of total testosterone.


What’s the difference between a total testosterone test and a free testosterone test?

Some of the testosterone in the body circulates freely, but much of it is bound to other proteins in the bloodstream like sex hormone-binding globulin (or SHBG). Testosterone that circulates freely (unbound) is known as free testosterone. (In general, higher SHBG levels correspond to lower levels of free testosterone.)

Total testosterone, on the other hand, represents the total amount of testosterone in the blood – both free and bound. So your total testosterone levels should be higher than your free testosterone levels.

While a total testosterone panel measures your total testosterone, the Everlywell Testosterone Test measures your free testosterone. Research shows that free T levels can be a better predictor of testosterone deficiency symptoms compared to total testosterone levels.

For example, in one study, “free testosterone correlated with erectile dysfunction severity among young men with normal total testosterone.” (Source: International Journal of Impotence Research, 2019)

Why is testosterone considered a male sex hormone?

Testosterone is widely regarded as a “male sex hormone.” This is because testosterone drives the development of many sexual characteristics in men, such as testes and sperm – as well as secondary characteristics like male hair patterns on the body.

However, testosterone is also a very important hormone for women. For example, testosterone in women can contribute to the maintenance and growth of bones, increases in muscle mass, decreases in body fat, and more.

Can this test help me see if my testosterone supplements (like gels or implants) are working?

This test can help you monitor your testosterone levels, so it’s an easy, reliable way to track the effectiveness of different kinds of testosterone replacement therapy you may be undergoing.


How do you test for low testosterone?

Screening for low testosterone (or “low T”) can be done with the Everlywell at-home test. This low testosterone test measures free testosterone—instead of total testosterone—and only requires a simple saliva collection done in the morning (the test can also detect high testosterone). After collecting your sample, you send it to a lab for analysis. You’ll get your secure, online results just a few days later.


How is testosterone related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women?

Polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with high levels of testosterone in women. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, experience a hormone imbalance. PCOS affects up to 1 in 10 women between the ages of 15 and 44. Symptoms can include irregular menstrual periods, abnormal amounts of hair on the face or chin, acne, hair loss and male-pattern baldness, weight gain, and more.
