Doctor: Lowering testosterone is possible, but should be done under a physician's supervision. I'm assuming that you had a doctor diagnose your high levels of testesterone, that same doctor should be able to assist you in lowering your levels as well and helping you get pregnant. Sometimes excess weight can cause increased testosterone, thus being at a healthy BMI can lower testosterone as well.

Testosterone: Your testosterone levels themselves should not affect your ability to get pregnant. If you are having periods every month, you need to give it a year of trying before it would be considered infertility.
