Hi, I have been getting tests for Pcos, they have found I have more totesterone hormone, I have just had an appointment sent to me today for a ct scan, what does this mean?, Adam I getting tested for something more serious now? Thanks
This is Dr. David

a CT scan is a routine test for patients who have polycystic ovarian syndrome

it is to check on your ovaries and cysts.

your ovaries can be producing too much androgen male hormones.

you need to consult with an endocrinologist

and get on birth control pills and medications like metformin which can help

and you need to exercise and diet to loose weight to help.

you should also get your thyroid hormone levels checked as well

let me know if you have questions.

I have been given metformin,

The letter has came on back of me seeing the consuatant, they did not say i was getting a ct scan, I just received the letter saying a ct scan,

I wanted to know if this was normal or if it means that it is something more serious? if you can let me know, thanks

yes, I let you know already.

it is routine to do a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis.

this is not to look for something more serious.

let me know if you have other questions.
