Our expert says:
There are a number of other blood tests that would assist in determining the severity of the PCOS and whether this is an associated with the co-existing metabolic syndrome. These blood tests should be combined with careful pelvic ultrasound evaluation as well so as to obtain a holistic picture of the problem and to be able to choose the appropriate treatment option. It would be best to discuss these tests with your gynaecologist. Apart from the blood test and ultrasound scanning you should also undergo tests for tubal patency and your partner should also have a semen analysis done. In many cases of infertility the problem is multi-factorial and therefore a full and thorough evaluation is necessary.
