Can you have normal testosterone and estrogen levels with multiple ovarian cyst and still be considered to have pcos?

Yes: Pcos is a clinical syndrome. It is not diagnosed by blood test results, though high male hormone levels, or other tests suggestive of Insulin resistance, can support the diagnosis. If you have problems with irregular periods, weight gain, excess hair growth, you can be diagnosed with pcos, despite normal lab results.
