I was newly diagnosed last week when my testosterone came out to 80.2 ( I dont know the ending labels...i.e. nmol/L..). My gyno said it was high since normal is 15-70. I was wondering what other people's values were to compare if my level is reallly high or not.

my gyno also told me to go on yasmin to get my period coming regularly. i also have thinning hair and acne. i really wanted to go on spironolactone to help with my acne and thinning hair. I know the yasmin has a comparable 25mg of it---but don't know if that is enough. What do you guys think? have any of you guys been sucessfull just on yasmin for superficial symptoms?

Should I go see an endocrinologist to have other tests run? she didnt think it was necessary since she said I probably don't have insulin ressistance (i am 5'3, 100lbs) and am not looking to get pregnant. I don't want to spend the money, but will if it will benefit me.

thanks!!! any insights appreciated!!
