In general, the doctor will not require a blood test prior to commencing you on treatment. This is because hormonal fluctuations are best represented by your symptoms over a period of time rather than a blood test at one point in time. Once you begin the treatment program, the doctor may organise blood testing for you as a monitoring tool. Of course, certain patients with pre-existing conditions may require screening testing prior to treatment.
