In brief: Consider PCOS

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is characterized by elevated androgenic (male) hormones in females.
It is potentially treatable and can increase one's risk for Insulin resistance and diabetes. I would recommend you discuss this possibility with your doctor to see if you have any of the symptoms of pcos.
