What is a PCOS Test?
COVID-19 patients usually recover entirely within a few weeks. However, some patients’ COVID-19 symptoms last for months after they’ve recovered from the initial infection. Patients may potentially develop problems that necessitate hospitalisation. Long-term COVID cases necessitate medical supervision beyond the first 15-day therapy period.
Patients can manage their symptoms at home and avoid problems with our post-COVID care service. We keep an eye on patients at home for early indicators of concern and respond quickly with clinical assistance
There are a total of 7 tests included in the PCOD test. They are:
- Androgen Levels: DHEA and Testosterone
- Hormone Levels: Follicle-Stimulating Hormone or FSH and Luteinizing Hormone or LH.
- Organ Evaluating: Thyroid (TSH only)
- Risk Assessment: Diabetes (hbA1C)
- Prolactin Level Analysis
It is recommended to undergo all these tests on the second or the third day of the menstrual cycle.
The LH test examines the amount of Luteinising Hormone present in a woman’s blood. LH is present in both men and women, affecting the reproductive organs. This hormone is produced in the pituitary gland, and the test is highly effective in pinpointing the exact time for ovulation. Therefore, it becomes very easy to figure out the different problems associated with ovulation.
The FSH test examines the amount of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone in blood. The FSH plays a significant part in the reproductive system of a woman. FSH levels can vary with gender and age.
The Serum Prolactin Test is conducted to measure prolactin levels in a person’s blood. If the levels of this hormone are found normal, the reproductive system will be in healthy working condition.
The total testosterone test measures the levels of testosterone in the blood. It is the LH responsible for the production of testosterone in the body. It is this hormone that gives women the physical characteristics of a male.
