Pcos pearl shaped cysts, all hormones normal no androgens high, all ratios normal lh/fsh, hyperhidrosis, what/why is this happening please help?

Not PCOS: Reading your question, the only clear-cut problem i see is hyperhidrosis. This is not a disease and it's hard to quantify "some people just sweat more than others." it is not clear from above that you have pcos; if you do, this wouldn't even be in the top 10 likely causes.

If those assumptions are true. Consult with a md about weaning off the testosterone. If the nightmares persist there is a medication that might help (prazosin). ...Read more

Is there a birth control pill that can lessen androgen hormones?

Is there a birth control pill that can lessen androgen hormones?

Maybe: In women, androgens are produced in the ovary and the adrenal gland. If, after appropriate evaluation, the androgens are found to be produced in the ovary (and are not so elevated as to raise the concern that they might be produced by a tumor) birth control pills can lower the androgen level because they "turn off" the production of all hormones by the ovary. ...Read more
