Please review the FTDNA info for the Marker Count (12, 25, 37, 67, etc) you want. So far, some of us are performing the 37-level test, the Y-DNA37. However, depending on your interest, the 12-level may, or may not, provide the results you desire. Obviously, the more markers, the better the results.
There will be comparison tests with as many Markers as available. In other words, if you only perform a 12-Marker test, those will be compared with the same 12-Markers of those receiving the 37-Marker test. Also, you can request an upgrade to a higher level test if the lower test does not provide you with the details desired.
Here is a discussion on the Marker Chart and its usefulness
Here is a discussion on the Quantity of Markers
There is also a difference in testing for Males and Females. Again, please review the FTDNA info.
Here is an Inheritance Chart and an explanation of the Male/Female test relationships
Note that this is not a blood test, but a ‘cheek scraping’.
Here is an example of the Test Kit
