You can request a testosterone level check from your GP, this would be a blood test taken between 07:00 and 10:00 in the morning.
This level varies throughout the day and may need to be checked a few times. If your GP does not want to do this test you can see a private GP for the blood test, consultation cost will not include the costing of the blood tests, so I suggest you enquire of the charges involved in this before the test is taken.
