PCOS is very common. A study identifies that the global prevalence of PCOS is estimated to be between 6% and 26%. But despite it being so common, research estimates that up to 75% of women with PCOS remain undiagnosed.

A 2017 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism showed that over one-third of women with PCOS had to wait over 2 years and visit with at least 3 different health professionals before a doctor their diagnosis was established.

But you can now bypass the failed and unhelpful doctor visits and reach the correct diagnosis.
Take control of your health with the LetsGetChecked at-home PCOS test.

Taking this test can empower you to have an informed conversation with your healthcare provider and reach a diagnosis.

The test kit measures key hormones that help control essential functions, including your menstrual cycle, weight and metabolism.
