PCOS is a surprisingly common condition believed to affect approx 10% of reproductive-aged women, with up to 70% of affected women remaining undiagnosed. This comprehensive hormone panel can provide further insights into women who may be suffering from PCOS.
What we test
Insulin resistance is a common feature of women with PCOS. High levels of insulin can lead to increased testosterone production, as well as metabolic issues such as weight gain, increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular risk.
Female Hormone Panel
Hormone imbalances are often evident with PCOS, and may be associated with irregular menstrual cycles, infertility, lack of ovulation, and hyperandrogenism (resulting from high levels of testosterone).
This PCOS female hormone test measures:
Your finger prick test kit and all instructions are posted directly to you, and there is no need to visit a collection centre.
Take test 7 days before predicted date of menstruation (if known). If menstrual cycle is 28 days, test on day 21 (where day 1 is the first day of bleeding).
Fast from all food and drink other than water for at least 8 hours, and no more than 12 hours prior to your test.
Ready. Set. Go!
