Menstrual Disorders, Fibroids & Polyps

Blood Tests

Frequently, some blood tests are necessary to help in the diagnosis of a particular menstrual disorder. These tests may range from certain hormonal measurements (thyroid hormone, adrenal hormones or pituitary hormones) to tests that measure your ability to clot (platelet count and bleeding time). The kinds of blood tests that you might require will depend on your menstrual history and your initial ultrasound exam.
