Relax: You're supposed to have relatively low testosterone, after all, you're a female. If you're having normal menses, you're protected against significant bone loss until menopause. However, if you're caucasian or asian or have chronic illness (liver, kidney, rheumatoid arthritis, etc) or take anti seizure meds, steroids or the like you're more prone. Exercise, take calcium (diet) and vitamin d.
