Internal Medicine - Endocrinology

In brief: Testosterone women

Who is measuring this and why? Women make low levels of testosterone from their adrenals and ovaries, i as a byproduct of making estrogen and adrenal steroids.
Too much t is part of pcos; too much t will give you excess hair, male pattern baldness, etc. A low t... Is not really of significance. Your lh is responsive to your estrogen, not t. Maybe you should see an endocrinologist.
