What causes underdeveloped breasts in women w/ pcos, I have all normal hormones/no elevated androgens/normal ratios but poly. Cys. Ovaries/acne/hirsu?

Although the levels : Of hormones are normal, i suspect the bioavailability or functionality of these hormones are still off - with higher testosterone and lower estrogen bioavailability.

Probably: Most ovarian cysts are harmless and in fact almost all women have a few tiny or not-so-tiny ones. Heads-up... the meds you're taking for acne will work best if you also use a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid. If you don't get a good result from this regimen, there are others -- spironolactone can often help a young woman. ...Read more
