Polycystic Ovary Syndrome affects as many as 1 in 10 people with ovaries. Yet despite its frequency, it is often difficult to get the answers and expert care needed to manage symptoms. Whether you are living with PCOS or experiencing symptoms, we can test the relevant hormones to detect, diagnose and provide end-to-end expert care.

What is PCOS?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder that is named after the appearance of fluid-filled sacs (follicles) in the ovaries, which is where your eggs live. The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but research suggests that genetic factors may play a part.

The hormonal imbalances in PCOS cases can have a knock-on effect on the rest of your body, causing a range of life-changing symptoms and period irregularities which can make it difficult getting pregnant. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, require expert PCOS care or would like support getting pregnant or planning for future pregnancies, we would advise this package.

What do we test?

We test a panel of hormones and analytes that help us understand the type of PCOS you have, so that we can advise you on the best pathway to care. These include your cycling hormones; oestradiol, follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinising hormone, to assess the function of your menstrual cycle and understand any abnormalities. To assess the follicles in your ovaries (the fluid-filled sacs where your eggs sit) and ovarian reserve, we test your anti-müllerian hormone levels.

As PCOS is characterised by excessive “male” hormones (androgens), we also test your androgen health by measuring testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin and DHEAS levels. An underactive thyroid is also common in people with PCOS, and so we test your thyroid hormones; thyroid-stimulating hormone and thyroxine. Lastly, we measure your levels of Haemoglobin A1c which tests your long-term glycaemic control as many people with PCOS are susceptible to diabetes.

FAQ’s

We will test you for anti-mullerian hormone (AMH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinising hormone (LH), oestradiol (E2), sex hormone-binding globulin SHBG and your androgens.

Before collecting your sample it is important to be hydrated, and very warm. We suggest collecting after a hot shower, or after submerging your hand into a bowl of hot water. Your blood sample is collected using a small finger-prick device.

Collect your blood drops into a small tube, filling it to the top line. For this package, you must fill 2 tubes to the top line, to collect enough blood to analyse the full panel of hormones.

These samples must then be sent off on the same day to our lab using a prepaid returns envelope.

Once your results are in, you’ll be able to book in with one of our PCOS experts, to discuss them in further detail and understand what they mean for you. You will also be able to purchase access to our expert nutritionists, who will guide you through a series of diet and lifestyle experiments to restore hormonal health.
