The polycystic ovary syndrome is a disorder of the endocrine system. With this disease your ovaries generate a large amount of androgen hormone (male hormone, present in the female body as well but in small amounts), and your ovaries will develop many fluid-filled cysts. Menstruation, ovulation, and fertility are all impacted by these factors. To detect whether you have PCOS, it is important to have a PCOS blood test.
The common misconception is that PCOS and PCOD are equivalent. The similarities between the two diseases’ symptoms make this conclusion seem obvious. When compared to PCOS, PCOD is far more prevalent in the general population. In order to treat PCOS, external hormone replacement is required, but PCOD can be managed with a healthy lifestyle alone.
Both diseases can make it hard for a woman to get pregnant, but PCOD does sometimes let women get pregnant. To inquire about how much a PCOS test will set you back, contact a nearby medical laboratory.
For some women, PCOD symptoms manifest themselves on the first day of their period. The typical signs and symptoms of of PCOD are:
- Gaining weight
- Breakouts in Skin and Hair
- Excessive body hair growth
- Inconsistent menstrual bleeding
- Skipped menstruation
- Severe menstrual bleeding
Routine blood tests are common and crucial for diagnosing any illness. In every blood drawing procedure, there is a slight risk. There is a chance of tingling and bruising at the site where the needle will be inserted. A day or two should be enough time for any soreness or bruises to fade away on their own.
Fasting (no food or liquids) for at least eight to twelve hours prior to the pcod test is sometimes required. Moreover, since the pcod profile blood test looks at various hormone levels, there are some medications that can skew the results. Therefore, before following any test instructions, you should talk to your doctor.
