High testosterone in women is affecting up to 4 in 10 fertile women!
Commonly referred to as PCOS, I have referred to it as Female Hormone Disorder (FHD).
My best selling book, Beauty and the Beast Within is about this phenomena.
Potential causes of elevated testosterone
- estrogen pathways
- insulin pathways
- psychological elements (masculine activities)
And some basics on how to recognise high testosterone in yourself:
- Psychological : Aggression, irritability, inability to relax, anger, broken sleep, competitiveness
- Physical : acne, unwanted facial or body hair, receding hair line, belly fat, cysts on the ovaries, infertility, longer cycles or no period, fat distribution on the neck.
