What is a Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Blood Test?
Polycystic ovary syndrome results from a hormonal imbalance that affects 5-10% of women of reproductive age. It is characterized by high levels of androgen hormones, irregular periods and small cysts on one or both ovaries.
Why get a PCOS test?
Signs and symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome often develop at puberty. But sometimes, it can develop later, for example, in response to significant weight gain. The symptoms can be:
- Irregular ovulation
- Imbalance of the hormonal balance
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
Instructions for use
Please take your Polycystic Ovary Syndrome sample in the morning. Take it at least one hour before any medication.
When you collect your sample, try the following tips:
- Drink plenty of water. Being well-hydrated will make it easier to collect your sample.
- Shower before you take your test or run your hands under warm water for a few minutes, as heat improves blood flow.
- Do light exercise (move around, walk, etc.) to get the blood flowing.
- Ensure your arm is below your heart level – let gravity do some of the work.
- Nails that are too long can make it difficult to collect a sample.
- Do not shake the sample vigorously but invert the tube gently 10 times. (gently swirl the tube after each drop of blood).
- Do not squeeze (milk) the finger.
- Re-warm your hands during collection where needed.
