Androgen Receptor Test

Androgen Receptor Test

The test is performed to measure the level of Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate and 17-hydroprogesterone in blood. It helps to diagnose and confirm infertility and polycystic ovarian syndrome. The test is also used during and after the treatment of infertility and polycystic ovarian syndrome.

You do not need to prepare specifically for the test. You have to make sure that you have gathered all the information from your doctor and are well aware of the process and the medications. Apart from this, your doctor would also like to know the medicines or supplements you take as certain medications can affect the test. Depending on your situation and condition, your doctor will advise you with the best course of treatment.

The blood sample is taken to the lab for analysis. The normal result for dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate is 270 – 1070 ng/dl and for 17-hydroxyprogesterone is 15-70 ng/ml.

For the test, your doctor will collect the sample and analyse it. For the blood test, your doctor or lab technician will place a plastic band on your upper arm; this is done to fill up the vein with blood and swell up. Then, he or she will clean the area with an antiseptic and put a needle. He will then draw a blood and keep it in a vial or tube. The plastic band and needle are removed and a bandage is applied to the area to stop the bleeding. The whole process usually takes a few minutes.
