What is PCOS? What are the causes could be for it being so high? I do have excessive hair growth, that's why I requested the blood work.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Does that mean I have a high testosterone level ? I've noticed my desire for sex has increased. Is that related to that ?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.M.D.Mazumdar, Doctor replied 2 years ago

PCOS is a condition in which there is high male hormone levels in women together with irregular periods, excessive hair growth, increased weight gain and irregular periods. It is a complex hormonal problem but can be treated - please consult an Obgyn for a full workup.

Yes, a high male hormone level cna increase the libido - the sexual desire. DHEA S inot testosterone but is the precursor of testosterone - meaning that testosterone an be formed in the body from DHEA - S.
