I have normal testosterone levels but have all the symptoms of a low level what else could cause the same symptoms ?
I have had some queasiness during my 7w pregnancy but not often or severe. Does that mean that my hormones are low? Do i need to worry? I have pcos.

As long as you have had an ultrasound showing a heartbeat over 120 a minute you have a 95% chance your pregnancy is fine. Pcos is not important once you are pregnant! except if you have diabetes. Eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids and take folic acid! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Women with pcos often have elevated estrogen, not low estrogen. Maybe consider going to gynecologist again to make sure that you have the right diagnosis. Again, if you are trying to conceive then bcp not indicated. ...Read more
I have increased urination since taking Losartan. Is this common and does it mean my creatine levels are increased?
Will levels return to normal?
Losartan acts: indirectly to increase blood flow to the kidneys, increasing kidney efficiency. If you were retaining body fluid, in theory, you may experience a temporary increase in urination as your fluid balance is restored.

Expectation level?: Exploring realistic expectations is a good start when evaluating sexual normalcy. There is a big range of "normal" in this category. Libido is a function of health and rest and stress patterns, and also reflects how you feel about yourself, even more than any attraction to others.
