  • not unless you have any others, but you could request a full blood work up.

  • It seems that most doctors will send you to a lab for blood work these days. So when you requst it, your dr will just fill out the orders.

  • Your doctor should order blood work when you have a physical.

  • well why exactly are you going for a normal check up i dont think they check hormones so why would you be testing that and worried about it

  • I'd also ask for a full panel of sexually transmitted diseases tests, just in case...Chlamydia is wide spread, but there are usually NO symptoms at all. It never hurts to be sure.
