Many women with PCOS are diagnosed without further investigation or advice, leaving them without the proper treatment and support. While the Rotterdam criteria is commonly used to diagnose PCOS, it’s important to understand that there are many other imbalances and conditions that could cause these symptoms. That’s why it’s essential to get a thorough evaluation and the right tests.
Here’s a list of the following tests I use in clinic to help inform the next steps in a clients journey.
These tests can help identify any underlying hormonal imbalances that may be causing your PCOS symptoms. Treatment strategies should be specific to you and address any underlying imbalances, rather than relying solely on the pill or Metformin, which may only provide temporary relief.
It’s important to remember that not every PCOS case is the same, and you need a personalized approach to manage your condition effectively. Therefore, it’s essential to work with a healthcare provider who can provide you with the right diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.
