🍋 Your saliva (DNA) sample can be collected whenever you want (make sure you don’t eat anything 30 minutes before!)
🩸 Your blood (hormone) sample should be collected on the 3rd day of your cycle (3rd day of bleeding).
You will send each sample back in the individual pre-addressed USPS envelopes inside the kit (🩸 for blood, 🍋 for saliva).
A Prick Party is a virtual celebration of this next step on your Birth Control Odyssey and a chance to collect your samples with our support.
Whether you have questions about the process, hate the idea of pricking yourself, are squeamish at the sight of blood, or just want to make sure you collect your samples correctly we can’t wait to see you! ! Bring your Birth Control Test. Bring a friend. Join the party!
In order to collect 🩸 your blood sample, please schedule your Prick Party for the 3rd day of your cycle.
Track your period so you are ready to collect your sample of the 3rd day of your cycle.
Try pricking the side of your finger instead of the pad (center) of your finger.
If blood doesn't flow, apply slow, gentle pressure around your finger, or try warming your hands under water or doing some jumping jacks to increase blood flow.
