From the expert

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 Advanced Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Blood Test contains a comprehensive hormone panel including tests for the hormones 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.
