Please take your sample in the morning. 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 women that affects the ovaries - resulting in the development of cysts on the ovaries which can become enlarged. PCOS is a common condition and in the UK affects around 7 in every 100 women. Investigations of PCOS focus initially on medical history, incidence of irregular periods (or none at all) and the existence of high levels of male hormones (androgens) in the body.

Our Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Check includes tests for testosterone, sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and the free androgen index (FAI) to indicate the amount of available androgens circulating in the blood. It also measures luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH); a high LH/FSH ratio of between 2:1 or more may indicate PCOS.

This test is for any woman who is experiencing any PCOS symptoms and wants to investigate further. Our doctors will interpret your results and let you know what action you should take next.
