Special instructions

Please take your sample in the morning. Fasting is optional for this test. Eating fatty foods might affect the results of a small number of blood tests so we may advise a retest when you are fasted. If you are interested in your triglyceride, LDL or omega 3 levels, then we do recommend fasting. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days prior to this test. If you are taking prescribed biotin you should discuss this with your doctor. Avoid taking a finger-prick sample from a finger used to handle hormone-gels or hormone-pessaries in the past 4 weeks.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which your ovaries are enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs around the eggs. It is quite common and affects normal ovarian function.  A diagnosis is based on medical history, symptoms and high levels of male hormones (androgens). Symptoms include irregular or absent periods or, excess facial hair growth, thinning hair and difficulty getting pregnant.

Our Complete Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Blood Test contains a comprehensive hormone panel including tests for testosterone, FSH and LH. It also measures anti-mullerian hormone which can be elevated in women with PCOS, as well as prolactin which can give further insights into your fertility. This profile includes tests for thyroid function, diabetes and cholesterol, all of which can be affected by polycystic ovaries.
