I've been wanting to have a hormone test for a very long time. but im on the pill and not keen to get off it any time soon for a whole book of reasons.

am i right in saying that I cant get my hormones tested because they will show up inaccurate due to being on the pill that is feeding me synthetic hormones? OR..will it come up accurate and show me what my hormone levels are including the synthetic hormones but still the overall 'balance' of my hormones? because i still have acne despite being on diane so it definitely hasnt cleared me completely..might a hormone test show WHY (considering it usually clears others)?

I went to the doc and he looked at me with worry and kinda didnt know how to answer my question (i dont think he knows ha) so wanted to ask here and you guys definitely know more than most doctors I've seen.

thanks :)

also just quickly .. is it possible to get a stress hormone cortisol test on a normal blood test (kinda like the average test of all vitamins not specific) does that show up? or do i have to get a hormone test to see cortisol? because god i'd love to know what that might be. (assuming if cortisol is high that might mean chronic stress?) actually wouldnt that be a urine sample test?
