Not sure of your Q. We know that giving someone excess testosterone can increase body & facial hair. If we give just enough testosterone to someone w/hypogonadism (low t), it shouldn't affect hair growth much, unless that testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which can cause male pattern baldness. Don't forget that genetics & ethnicity play a role in hair growth, too.
In my late puberty I was treated with testosterone to help me grow, could this be related to my excessive body hair growth?
I have polycystic ovaries and high levels of shbg. I am showing signs of high testosterone (excess body hair, acne, absent periods, etc). Why is this?
