CAH: Hi. It sounds like you may have a condition called non-classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to a sluggish enzyme activity (21-hydroxylase). This can interfere with periods and fertility, and can cause hirsutism. Any of those things going on? The ACTH stim test can tell if 17(OH)progesterone and androtenedione go up out of proportion to the rise in cortisol. Good luck!
