Polycystic Ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

At Fusion Healthcare we offer a comprehensive PCOS blood test profile which evaluates hormone levels in relation to Polycystic Ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

PCOS is an endocrine disorder which affects how the ovaries work. PCOS is related to abnormal hormone levels in the body, including high levels of insulin. 

Symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Irregular periods/no periods
  • Hirsutism (Excess hair growth, usually on face, chest, back, or buttocks)
  • Weight gain
  • Hair thinning/Hair loss
  • Acne
  • Difficulty getting pregnant 

The PCOS blood test profile evaluates a number of hormones which relate to PCOS. These include:

Testosterone: Women with PCOS have elevated testosterone/excess androgens which causes symptoms like excess facial hair and hair thinning.

Oestrogen: High oestrogen levels are associated with PCOS.

TSH (Thyroid): TSH levels are checked to rule out any thyroid problems that can often cause irregular periods or anovulation.

Cholesterol: High cholesterol is lined with PCOS. PCOS is causes weight gain, obesity, and excess belly fat (visceral fat), this can lead to higher triglycerides. 

Prolactin: Some women with PCOS may have raised prolactin levels.

Evaluating these hormones is vital to identify what may be causing any problems. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, or having difficulty conceiving, then this blood test may be valuable in ruling out certain problems and aid the planning of your fertility journey.
