Possibly: If a woman's testosterone level gets too high, she may experience increased facial hair growth, oil (sebum) production, and possible acne, but the bony structure of the face will not change. She may also develop a deeper voice.

Possible PCO: When someone has a combination of increase testosterone as well as long heavy periods it brings up the topic of polycystic ovarian syndrome, which is not so much a problem specifically of the ovaries but it can be linked to problems such as diabetes hypertension and obesity.

I have been diagnosed pcos, i'v high testosterone level 1.47 ng. Ml, I am 26 and I weigh 49 kgs. Please tell me what to do to get pregnant. Desperate?

See an endocrine doc: Your testosterone is very high which is causing your periods to be irregular, and you need some additional testing to find out why. Pcos is most common in obese patients but we see it in normal weight patients too. There are medications which can suppress t production and help you get pregnant but first you need a complete evaluation to see why your ovaries or adrenals are overproducing t.

Genetics & health: Testosterone level reflects your genetics & your health. You're born to produce a certain amount (wide range of normal). You can decrease that amount via bad health habits. To some extent you can increase your t by losing fat weight. That's where exercise is important. Masturbation does not count as exercise significant enough to raise t. Genetics also determines baldness & t conversion into dht.

Anti-androgens: While spironolactone is typically used as a water pill in high blood pressure & heart failure etc, it can also be prescribed for its anti-androgen effects (http://www. Drugs. Com/spironolactone. Html). Depending upon effect of "high" testosterone, hormonal contraception can also be used to combat some signs & symptoms, such as acne. Best to check w/your family doc to first discover cause of high T.

Lab reference range?: Lab tests should always come w/reference range in order to determine if result high or low. Just as important for testosterone is how you feel. If you feel poorly eg hypogonadal, talk to your family doc about treatment options (which depend upon whether you want to father children or not). Also need to find out why your numbers are low before starting treatment. We check prolactin, lh & fsh +/-mri.

What do you suggest if my testosterone level is 1.5ng/dl but I don't have any symptoms. Should I go for further investigation or treatment or I should left it?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

What's your gender?: Are you a man or mouse? Seriously, your answer matters b/c reference range for testosterone varies depending upon gender. It's good that you included units (ng/dL) but your results should also include your appropriate reference range. Assuming your results are low, yet you're asymptomatic (no symptoms), consider repeating test before pushing ahead. Of course, best to discuss options w/ordering doc

1o hypogonadism: Cabergoline or some other dopamine agonist is 1st line treatment of hyperprolactinemia which is one of many 2o hypogonadotropic conditions (http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/121784-medication#1). Starting dose is 0.25mg twice weekly titrated up to 1mg twice weekly as deemed necessary by follow up prolactin levels. But this will not treat 1o hypogonadism where testes aren't functioning at all.

Just wait...: Not in a hurry! Just repeat it in 2-3 months but make sure it done during 7-11 am. Generally speaking, as long as you have adequate manhood, energy, proper size of testes and desire, I would not get excited and treated by the number. Of course, if doubt persists, see expert with common sense and knowledge. Read some life-related articles in www. Formefirst. Com may help. Best.
