Key biomarkers - see full list below

  • You are experiencing irregular periods and you think that polycystic ovaries might be the cause
  • You are having difficulty getting pregnant and want to rule out or confirm polycystic ovary syndrome
  • You have symptoms such as acne, weight gain, and hirsuitism (excess hair) and want to investigate your male hormone levels
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.
You need to let us know the date of the first day of your last period (if you have them), this allows our doctors interpret your test accurately. You will receive an email asking you to complete this information in your MyMedichecks account, and there is an option to tell us if you no longer have periods.
