Is this for you?
The Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Blood Test offers a simple, at-home blood test that can indicate the presence of PCOS. This is the consequence of hormonal imbalance and, while it affects roughly 5-10% of women of reproductive age, it is renowned for going undiagnosed for extended periods of time. The test is recommended for those who have irregular menstrual cycles, excess hair growth, insulin resistance or stubborn acne.

Hormones: Hormones govern every activity of your body, from growth and metabolism to reproduction and your sleep cycle. Even a small imbalance in your hormone levels can have a significant impact on your health, affecting your mood and energy levels as well as fertility and libido. Hormones are known as chemical messengers which are manufactured in your glands and released into your bloodstream. They instruct your body in everything it does – regulating appetite, growth, mood and reproduction. Generally they keep the body functioning and in balance. Hormone disorders are common and can often be put right through hormone replacement therapy or lifestyle changes. Hormone levels fluctuate throughout the day and also, for women, through the reproductive cycle.
Why take this test?
You are experiencing irregular periods and you think that polycystic ovaries might be the cause
You are having difficulty getting pregnant and want to rule out or confirm polycystic ovary syndrome
You have symptoms such as acne, weight gain, and hirsuitism (excess hair) and want to investigate your male hormone levels
Prepare for your Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Blood Test by following these instructions. Please take your sample before 10am. Take this test 2 to 5 days after the start of your period, ideally on day 3. It can be taken any time if you do not have periods. Hormonal contraception can affect the results of this test.
Taking a break from this and waiting for your periods to restart before your blood test will give more accurate results. Avoid taking your sample from a finger used to apply hormone gels/pessaries/patches in the past 4 weeks. Use gloves to apply these. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.
