Test Details & Preparation

  • Total Testosterone test is done to detect an abnormal testosterone level in males and females, to help diagnose the cause of erectile dysfunction, the inability of your partner to get pregnant (infertility), or premature or delayed puberty in females, to help diagnose the cause of masculine physical features (virilisation), infertility, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

  • For males total testosterone test is performed when you may be infertile or are unable to get or maintain an erection when you are a boy with either early or delayed sexual maturity (puberty).

  • For females total testosterone test is performed when you have male traits, such as a low voice or excessive body hair (hirsutism), when you have abnormal uterine bleeding, do not menstruate (amenorrhea), or are infertile.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm for a total testosterone test.

  • No preparation is needed for a total testosterone test.

  • The normal range for testosterone levels in men is broad and varies by stage of maturity and age. It is normal for testosterone levels to slowly decline starting in the third decade of life.

  • A low testosterone level (hypogonadism) may be due to hypothalamic or pituitary disease, genetic diseases that can cause decreased testosterone production in young men and impaired testosterone production because of acquired damage to the testes, such as from alcoholism, physical injury, or viral diseases like mumps.

  • Increased testosterone levels in males can indicate testicular tumours, adrenal tumours that are producing testosterone, use of androgens, early puberty of unknown cause in boys etc.

  • In women, testosterone levels are normally low. Increased testosterone levels can indicate PCOS, ovarian or adrenal gland tumour and congenital adrenocortical hyperplasia.
