Less likely: Where do you live that you're using SI units? Always ask for lab's normal reference range for particular test result b/c different ways of measuring can lead to different results. In fact, there are at least 3 different ways to measure testosterone. Given that your T is most likely at low end of normal, you're slim w/o acne & have regular menses, your hirsutism is unlikely to be due to PCOS.
