In brief: Difficult

High testosterone is usually seen with pcos.
Your options are birth control, especially with yaz/yasmin which vary with different amounts of estrogen, avoid adrenal stimulating supplements like dhea since its a precursor to testosterone, decreasing animal fat, and trying vitex, a natural supplement that can help balance your hormones.
