We offer a second opinion service where you can send us your hormone test results, sperm test results and other results. We offers our opinion based on our longstanding experience in this field on the phone. It will not be a face-to-face medical consultation.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is characterised by:
Two hormone markers for PCOS are:
PCOS patients often have higher-than-normal AMH levels because small cysts in the ovaries generate AMH additional to that generated by the egg reserve. They also may have high testosterone, responsible for hair loss or hair growth.
Treatment for PCOS will therefore often involves lowering your AMH and Testosterone - the two hormone markers for PCOS.
Taking a Female Fertility Profile test where periods are highly irregular or do not occur can also be worthwhile.
After starting treatment, hormone retests will show how well you respond to treatment.
Includes a report, follow-up phone call to explain the result and to talk about potential treatments.

While we are happy to explain your test results to you, we always advise consulting your GP and having a proper medical consultation about your result. This is because these tests are Western medical tests and are best explained by Western medical doctors. We do not accept any liability regarding interpretation of test results should you wish us help explaining them.
If you have booked a test and decide to change the time or date, we are more than happy to help you change it to one that is convenient to you at no extra charge. However, cancellation will carry a small administrative fee of £30, before refund.
