    Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is a hormonal disorder in women where follicle cysts are formed in the ovaries. It also results in the excessive secretion of androgen (male hormones), which may cause missed or irregular menstrual periods in women and make conception difficult.

    If left untreated, PCOD can lead to serious health problems like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A PCOD panel test can help diagnose this condition.

    PCOD Panel Extended Test - Overview

    PCOD panel test assesses the levels of hormones in the blood because it is a problem rooted in hormonal imbalance. Around 10% of women suffer from PCOD symptoms between starting and ending period of their reproductive phase. 

    There is an imbalance in the level of estrogen and androgen hormones, which might lead to infertility at a later stage. Due to this imbalance, the ovulation phase of the cycle is disrupted. 

    The luteinizing hormone (LH) test plays a vital role in triggering the release of the ovum. It also identifies the problems that may be interfering with the regular cycle.

    It is essential to keep track of hormones that have a crucial role before and after ovulation. This is where the follicle-stimulating hormone test plays an important role. The levels of this hormone vary with gender and age.

    Many women develop male physical characteristics during PCOD. Hence, the testosterone test confirms the elevation in the level of male hormones. This is one of the molecular hallmarks of PCOD. 

    Prolactin is a hormone that plays a role in regulating the female reproductive cycle. It stimulates breast milk production. Carrying out the prolactin test allows the specialists to look at other causes behind PCOD. 

    Apart from these significant tests, the PCOD panel test consists of several other parameters that confirm the condition's presence. Other tests involve measuring estradiol levels, insulin-like growth factor levels in serum, and cortisol levels. 

    Who Should Get Tested? 

    While the PCOD test is an open option for every woman, it is essential to notice the symptoms and observe the changes in one’s body. Some physical changes in the body involve increased acne, weight gain, oily skin, and excess hair fall. 

    A woman also faces several problems like depression, mood swings, sleep cycle irregularities, and other bodily changes. Early detection of PCOD through the PCOD panel test may help manage or reverse the condition. 

    PCOD profile check allows you to work on the problem and understand its severity. If ignored for a longer time, minor issues like PCOD can become a cause of ovarian cancer.
