Have you experienced irregular or absent periods, difficulty getting pregnant, excess hair growth, weight gain, thinning hair or acne? These could all be symptoms of PCOS. It is a condition that affects up to 10-15% of women and will usually appear during your late teens to early twenties, however could become apparent at any time in your reproductive life.
During an appointment with one of our Consultants they can talk through your symptoms, carry out an ultrasound scan and, if necessary, order blood tests. These tests will determine whether you have PCOS and also assess for any complications such as diabetes. The doctor will talk through the results with you and can explain your diagnosis and any implications it may have for you. The doctor can recommend a management plan and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Please see our fees page for the prices of appointments and ultrasound scans with one of our Consultant gynaecologists. Any further tests will be billed for by the appropriate facility.
