PCOS? CUSHING’s? POI? A Round-Up of Common PCOS Misdiagnosis

We have found that Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can be misdiagnosed or confused with other conditions due to overlapping symptoms. We’ve rounded up the common conditions that can be misdiagnosed instead of PCOS. 

  • Hypothyroidism: Both PCOS and hypothyroidism can cause irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, and fatigue.

  • Cushing’s syndrome: This condition involves excess cortisol production and can cause weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, and hirsutism (excessive hair growth), which are also common symptoms of PCOS.

  • Adrenal hyperplasia: This condition affects the adrenal glands and can cause symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycles, hirsutism, and infertility, similar to PCOS.

  • Ovarian tumors: Some ovarian tumors can cause symptoms similar to PCOS, such as irregular menstrual cycles and pelvic pain.

  • Endometriosis: While not directly related to hormonal imbalances like PCOS, endometriosis can cause pelvic pain, irregular menstrual cycles, and infertility, leading to potential misdiagnosis.

  • Hyperprolactinemia: Elevated levels of prolactin, a hormone that stimulates milk production, can cause irregular menstrual cycles and infertility, symptoms that overlap with PCOS.

  • Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI): Formerly known as premature ovarian failure, POI involves a loss of normal ovarian function before the age of 40, leading to irregular menstrual cycles and infertility, which can mimic PCOS.

At Rocco’s Remedy, we conduct a thorough evaluation, including medical history, physical examination, and appropriate diagnostic tests, to accurately diagnose PCOS and differentiate it from other conditions with similar symptoms.
