Diagnosis PCOS

    I have irregular periods and lots of body hairs so I want to know if this could be PCOS? Should I see the doctor and if so, how will the diagnosis be done? Ultrasound, blood test or how does it work?

  3. Hi there. I’m sorry you’re facing it. Our Dr at BTC says there is no one single test that is done to diagnose PCOS. It is more a combination of different test results and your symptoms that will lead to a diagnoses.
    Common testing that is done to diagnose PCOS:
    Blood tests for LH, FSH, TSH, Testosterone, Prolactin, Cholesterol, Triglycerides, Vitamin D.
    Progesterone blood test on 7 days past ovulating.
    Glucose tolerance test, and fasting Blood glucose numbers to check for insulin resistance.
    A pelvic ultasound to check your ovaries for cysts, and to see if they are enlarged.
    Hope this helps.
