What would cause high androsterone and high androstanediol but low testosterone in a woman in her thirties?

Then make sure it's repeated, including free testosterone and gonadotropins, prolactin, etc. And talk with your doctor. If you need testosterone, which is probably unlikely, there are better therapies than injections. Have you previously used Anabolic steroids which can cause your problem? ...Read more
Yes, by someone else: More likely than not, testosterone replacement therapy, whether by injection, cream/lotion/gel or patch, will render a man infertile. However, that is not to say that his female partner should not use contraception, just that, if fertility is an issue, he should find another way to increase t w/o replacing t directly. For instance, off-label Clomiphene or tamoxifen can be used to increase t level. ...Read more
