What is the first step to exploring a possible diagnosis of PCOS?
Early diagnosis is important to manage symptoms and may prevent long-term health problems such as diabetes from developing. Medical treatment and diagnosis of PCOS starts with your GP. Your GP and specialists can discuss possible treatments with you to help you decide what treatment best suits you. The diagnosis process will likely involve your GP exploring the following:
> Medical history
> Tests to measure hormone levels in the blood
> Other tests when necessary, such as a pelvic ultrasound.
