In case hirsutism is present then additional tests include Free testosterone, FSH, LH, Prolactin, 17 OHP, Androstenedione, DHEAS, DHT, Lipid profile-2, T3, T4, TSH.

People with the following symptoms:

  • Irregular periods, hirsutism (unwanted male-pattern hair growth) and obesity.

12-14 hrs of fasting is required, only plain water can be consumed during fasting

FBS, PPBS and HOMA index

Elevated levels of blood glucose levels indicate diabetes mellitus.

HOMA index is raised in patients with insulin sensitivity. This is useful in monitoring the insulin therapy.

FSH - Follicle Stimulating Hormone

Normal to decreased FSH occurs in polycystic ovary disease in females, and very underweight patients.

LH-Luteinizing Hormone

Primary LH is decreased in primary ovarian hyper function in females and Polycystic Ovary disease (PCOS).

LH: FSH ration more than 3:1 is often found in PCOS, despite the fact that individual values are within the normal range

Testosterone (Free) Serum

In females high testosterone levels are seen in Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), Adrenal tumor, Congenital Adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and idiopathic hirsutism.

High values require clinical correlation.

TSH(Ultrasensitive), T3 and T4 test

TSH, T3 and T4 levels are prone to physiologic, seasonal and diurnal variation.  Levels are associated with regular menstrual cycle and ovulation and any increase or decrease should be further investigated.

Prolactin Test

High levels may also be seen in Prolactinoma, anorexia nervosa, hypothalamus disorders, hypothyroidism, Kidney disease, Liver disease, polycystic ovary syndrome and other pituitary diseases and tumors. High levels are associated with infertility

DHT (5-alpha Dihydrotestosterone)

High DHT levels may be seen in patients with PCOS and hirsutism.


Levels are increased in polycystic ovarian disease, hirsutism, virilization, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, adrenal and ovarian tumors and Cushing’s disease, pregnancy and exercise.

DHEAS (Dehydroepiandrostenedione Sulphate)

High levels of DHEAS may occur due to congenital adrenal hyperplasias, adrenal tumours, or PCOS.

AMH Test

Lipid Profile 2

High cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL levels may indicate risk of lipid disorders and cardiac ailments. Clinical correlation is recommended.

Low HDL levels indicate risk of lipid disorders and cardiac ailments. Clinical correlation is recommended.

In PCOS, depending upon patient to patient there can abnormal results for the other tests especially if other comorbidities exist.

  • PCOS test
  • FBS test
  • PPBS test
  • HOMA index test
  • FSH test

  • Testosterone test
  • TSH test
  • Progesterone test
  • Lipid profile test

The fasting as well as blood glucose levels are measured to know the diabetes status in the patients. Diabetes is common in patients suffering from PCOS.

HOMA index helps to know the insulin status as well as insulin sensitivity in patients suffering from PCOS.

FSH, a hormone responsible for the reproductive functions, menstrual functions as well as development of secondary sexual characteristics in women.

LH is a hormone co-secreted with FSH by Anterior pituitary gland which together control growth and reproductive activities of the gonadal tissues.

Testosterone aids in the development of secondary sexual characteristics like enlargement of the genitals, body hair growth, development of muscle and deepening of the voice. Free testosterone test helps to know the functional component of organ development and sexual characteristics.

Prolactin is a hormone secreted by pituitary gland. High levels of prolactin in non-lactating mothers can lead to amenorrhoea and infertility by inhibiting production of FSH.

17-Hydroxy Progesterone(17-OHP) has a role in the development of secondary sexual functions and organ development. 17-OHP test aids in the diagnosis of infertility and congenital adrenal insufficiencies.

The DHEAS and DHT tests are useful to know the status of sex hormones in the body.

It is a major adrenal androgen produced by the testes and ovaries.

TSH is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland and is responsible for the production of T3 and T4 hormones. Thyroid hormones have an impact on the physiological bodily functions and are indirectly also related with the sexual functions in the body. Normal levels of this hormone aid in ovulation and hence aid fertilization.
