The list of tests includes:
- Fasting insulin
- Fasting glucose
- Testosterone

I also had these done but not sure if it was to test for PCOS or something else:
-FSH
-Prolactin

You would also need a vaginal ultrasound to check for cysts on your ovaries, even though you can have PCOS and not have cysts.

I think there are more blood tests that I am forgetting now, but those are the basics For my diagnosis it was the scan, the testosterone test and insulin test that came back abnormal.

Speak to your doctor about it, it's definitely not something you want to leave untreated if you do have it! I waited almost a year before I got help and ended up gaining a huge amount of weight in that period. Good luck!
