I was referred to endrocology excess fair hair

Customer Question

I was referred to endrocology for having excess fair hair for a number of years. Blood tests were carried out which ruled out cushing syndrome and late on set cogential hydroplasia. However the doctor has queried sub clinical Polycystic Ovaries. What does sub clinical mean. Also periods are normal and frequent - always has been. Testorone levels have been tested are again normal. The doctor has requested a scan of ovaries - I am wondering what is the point of this - as I do not think that there is much treatment given that periods and testorone are normal. Is PCOS harmful.
