Not necessarily: Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a condition in women characterized by irregular or no menstrual periods, acne, obesity, and excess hair growth and affects 5-10% of women of reproductive age. While higher than normal levels of testosterone is a common feature of PCOS, it is not the only cause. If your levels are of concern, discuss with your doctor.
