    treatment for women with high testosterone levels and PCOS

    what treatment options are available for women with high testosterone levels? are birth control pills the only option?

    Also, what are some good birth control pills with little side effects?

    My lab results showed i had a high testosterone level - 80ng/dl (the normal range was quoted as 14-76) and all other test results were normal.

    For this reason i was given birth control(Femcon FE) to see if my pcos symptoms would go away (mild hirsutism and irregular periods).I read that this is the most common line of treatment that is advised everywhere for the treatment of the symptoms of pcos.

    Has anyone else been given Femcon as a treatment?
