About Polycystic ovary syndrome check

What is polycystic ovary syndrome?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition resulting from a variety of genetic factors, environmental factors and abnormal hormone levels in women. Individuals with PCOS typically have irregular periods, elevated male hormones and enlarged ovaries with multiple underdeveloped follicles. PCOS is thought to affect up to 1 in 5 women in the UK and while there is no cure, lifestyle factors such as obesity can affect symptoms. Symptoms of PCOS include irregular periods and infertility due to lack of ovulation.

Why take the test?

This test checks the most common PCOS related hormones. It is used to help diagnose PCOS in women with irregular menstrual cycles or reduced fertility.
