Polycystic Ovaries Blood Screening

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a common hormone disorder that can cause problems with your period, fertility, weight, and skin. Although there’s no single test that, by itself, shows whether you have polycystic ovary syndrome, a blood test can measure your hormone levels to understand whether your symptoms could be caused by PCOS. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) make more male hormones and that can cause issues for fertility. It also increases the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, uterine cancer and type 2 diabetes.

What we test
Testosterone II
While found at higher levels in men, women still produce testosterone. If these levels are low, you might feel less sex drive, low motivation, weight gain, depression and less motivation for daily tasks.
LH
The luteinizing hormone (LH) controls the menstrual cycle. It can detect pregnancy and high levels may explain infertility related to polycystic ovary syndrome.
FSH
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) plays an important role in growth, puberty and reproduction. A high FSH might indicate a low number of viable reproductive eggs.
Free Androgen Index
The FAIR looks at how much testosterone in your body. Out of range levels impact your mood, sex drive, body hair and fertility in women.
SHBG
Sex hormone binding globulin is a liver-produced protein which attaches to our sex hormones. It can help identify more precise issues with fertility, weight gain, menstrual irregularities and more.
