Which tests are performed to detect PCOS in women?
Hello, which tests are performed to detect PCOS? For the last few months, I have been having irregular periods and whenever I had my periods bleeding was light so I decided to visit a doctor. He said I might have PCOS. Is there any test that can detect PCOS? Which tests are performed to detect PCOS in women?
@inayka Hello, there is no test to detect PCOS. the doctor is likely to start with a discussion of your medical history, including your menstrual periods and weight changes. A physical exam will include checking for signs of excess hair growth, insulin resistance, and acne. They might perform a pelvic examination, blood test, and ultrasound. If you are diagnosed with PCOS then take Periodic checks of blood pressure, glucose tolerance, and cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Thanks.
