    PCOS with normal testosterone???

    Is it possible to have PCOS and to have normal testosterone level? Is it also possible for all of the hormone tests to come back normal and still have PCOS?

    I hope someone can answer this. I've been meaning to ask this question for absaloutely months.

    What other thing apart from high testosterone can cause abnormal hair growth?

    Thank you.

    Re: PCOS with normal testosterone???

    I was wondering the same thing. I have facial hair, but my total testosterone is normal. My doctor just ran more blood work, and included a free testosterone. So I'll see if that is different. I would really like to know how facial hair just appears all of the sudden at 40ish, and NOT have high testosterone. I'll let you know what I find out. It may be a while, as I live in SW Louisiana, and we are currently without electricity(I'm running on a generator to check all my email!). I may have lost my labwork also, as they drew my blood 24 hours before the hurricane hit. But, if I find out any clues to this, I'll let you know!

    Hiya Karen,
    I have found out that if your hair follicles are over-sensitive like in PCOS sufferers that hirutism (hair growth) can happen and testosterone levels can be normal. I posted this message for my mum as she wanted to know. Thanks anyway hun and hope your electricity is back on soon!
