BP testosterone: In the absence of symptoms and orthostasis probably nothing although a pathologically high testosterone level should be investigated to exclude an endocrinopathy

Possibly...: A common cause of elevated testosterone in women is Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)--usually associated with menstrual disorders, infertility, and obesity. The only link I can see with low blood pressure is if you also have associated Diabetes and have low overall fluid volume due to excessive urination from high sugars. Also, associated heavy periods might make you anemic with low pressures.
