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?

    • 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.
