Possibly: You need to find out the reason for the high testosterone level. Many women have polycystic ovarian syndrome associated with high testosterone levels. This is also associated with infertility. Treatment depends on what is causing the high levels.

Probably But See MD: If you have not seen an md about this, i think you should seriously consider it. If you would like to read an in-depth article on androgen excess, see this artcle link: http://emedicine.Medscape.Com/article/273153-overview.
