About the PCOS Test

  • The total health check is a full body health checkup to focus on the complete health status of full body functions.
  •  This complete health checkup package will cover 65 test parameters for kidney and liver function tests, thyroid profile, lipid profile, complete CBC, uric acid levels, Vitamin D, B12, and many vital functions.

Metabolic Health 

Metabolism is your body’s way of chemically processing sugar and fat for use throughout the body as energy. An optimal metabolism supports healthy weight control and energy levels, while a dysfunctional metabolism can lead to undesired fluctuations in weight and fatigue or decrease in Vitality

HbA1c & Fasting Insulin –Chief source of energy for the body which if elevated slows down fat loss and is also a risk for diabetes


Cholesterol & Lipids – An essential fat that serves many vital functions such as energy creation and metabolism
.  It is the principal building block of many of our hormones including estrogen, testosterone etc and also plays a vital role in Vit D production. 

Thyroid Function – Overall measure of thyroid stimulation affecting metabolism, energy, weight and temperature control 

Sex & Fertility Hormones

Testosterone is a hormone important for both men and women that regulates your sex drive (libido), muscle mass, fertility, and mood.

FSH is produced in the pituitary gland and is essential for production of eggs by the ovaries

DHEAS is a precursor hormone that coverts into testosterone. Low levels could contribute to low libido

SHBG Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is a protein that’s made in the liver and attaches itself to sex hormones, primarily Testosterone, and removes it from direct utilisation in the body

Estradiol  it’s vital to maintain an optimised ratio of Testosterone and Estrogen for female health. Symptoms like fatigue, excess fat around your waist and belly, bone loss, lack of sex drive, anxiety, irritability, and depression are when your body is not producing enough Estrogen

Progesterone Its main role is to prepare the body for and support a pregnancy. It is produced in increasing amounts in the second half of the menstrual cycle. Progesterone is normally tested on day 21 of your menstrual cycle to assess whether ovulation has taken place. 

FSH , LH stimulates the menstrual cycle and peaks before ovulation

Prolactin stimulates sex drive and abnormal levels interfere with lack of energy, ED and fertility problems

Anti Mullerian Hormone (AMH)   it is produced by the follicles which contain eggs within the ovary. Levels can indicate how high or low a woman's ovarian reserve is

Blood Health 

Iron is needed by the immune system and the body uses the free radical action of iron to attack some pathogens. Iron helps the immune system in another way by enhancing the ability of white blood cells to engulf and kill bacteria.

Ferritin is Oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood is essential for endurance exercise as well as for normal function of the nervous, behavioural, and immune systems.

What does PCOS means

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges. It is common among women of reproductive age. 

Causes of PCOS Polycystic ovary syndrome

Doctors don’t know exactly what causes PCOS. They believe that high levels of androgenic hormones prevent the ovaries from producing hormones and making eggs normally.Genes, insulin resistance, and inflammation have all been linked to excess androgen production.

Polycystic ovary syndrome symptoms

The most common PCOS symptoms include - 

    • Irregular menstrual flow - A lack of ovulation prevents the uterine lining from shedding every month. 
    • Heavy bleeding - The uterine lining builds up for a longer period of time 
  • Excess hair growth
    • Acne - Male hormones can make the skin oilier than usual and cause breakouts on areas like the face, chest, and upper back.
  • Weight gain
  • Male-pattern baldness - Hair on the scalp gets thinner and causes hair loss
  • Darkening of the skin - Dark patches of skin can form in body creases like those on the neck, in the groin, and under the breasts.
  • Headaches - Frequent changes in hormone levels can trigger headaches in some women

Difference between PCOS and PCOD

PCOS and PCOD  are different from one another as - 

  • Nature of the condition - PCOD is not considered to be truly a disease since with the right diet and exercise, it can be managed. PCOS, on the other hand, is a metabolic disorder.
  • Cause - Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a disorder of the endocrine system, while PCOD is a condition developed by the imbalance of hormones. The theory is that high levels of androgenic hormones prevent ovaries from producing hormones and producing eggs normally. Insulin resistance and inflammation have also been linked to excess androgen production.
  • Impact on pregnancy - Polycystic Ovarian Disease does not lead to infertility in all women and shouldn’t be considered an obstacle towards pregnancy. For women with PCOS, conception can be a challenge due to irregular hormonal levels. To conceive, one should have balanced hormonal cycles that can create an environment for the ovum to release and infuse with the sperm post-intercourse.

 

How is the PCOS profile test done?

The blood test helps in the diagnosis of PCOS along with pelvic exam & ultrasound as suggested by the physician. The blood profile test is done to check for the symptoms of PCOS like high androgen levels, irregular menstrual cycle, weight gain.

Can having PCOS affect the results of a pregnancy test?

No, it should not affect the results of a pregnancy test. Although women with pcos struggle with irregular periods and difficulty knowing the ovulation period. In case of a missed or late period the pregnancy test result is negative, do repeat the test a week later if your period has still not come.

Does PCOS cause low testosterone?

Women with PCOS usually have increased levels of testosterone (free and total both). An increase in testosterone can interfere with your monthly menstrual cycle.

Can PCOS affect ovulation tests?

An ovulation test to find a fertile window for conception might not give reliable results in the case of PCOS.

How irregular are periods in pcos?

Periods are considered irregular when the period cycle occur eight times or less in a year. In PCOS, the menstrual cycle may or may not be irregular. They might even stop altogether.

What hormone imbalance causes PCOS?

A hormonal imbalance of the hormone LH (released from the pituitary gland) or insulin (from pancreas) causes the ovaries to make extra testosterone in women’s bodies causes PCOS 

Why does PCOS cause diabetes?

Women with PCOS are often insulin resistant. They are able to produce insulin but are unable to make an effective use of this hormone. This increases their risk for acquiring Type 2 Diabetes.

Is PCOS a reproductive disorder?

Reproductive disorders are disorders involving the reproductive system. As PCOS includes the involvement of ovaries, a part of the female reproductive system, PCOS can be classified as a reproductive disorder.
