Dr Owen : Hello
Customer:

Hello

Dr Owen : hi
Dr Owen : Well testosterone itself will not cause abscence of your periods
Dr Owen : I am not sure what else you have had checked - but things like Weight can cause abscence of periods
Dr Owen : Also a thyroid condition can cause abscense of perids
Dr Owen : And also if you have an elevated Prolactin level
Dr Owen : Or if you have PCOS - polycystic ovarian syndrome
Dr Owen : Each of these should be checked to ensure you can get a period IF you are desiring to become pregnant
Dr Owen : If you have elevated testosterone - this means you can have PCOS - and hence you should consider using Metformin to help this condition
Dr Owen : I wish you well

Dr Owen : Thank you
Customer:

My BMI is in the overweight area (28). I am thinking the high testostrone might be linked to PCOS due to the high testorone. Can you just confirm my level is high and I should ask about Metformin?

Dr Owen :

Okay

Dr Owen :

Yes testosterone levels In women DOES indicate PCOS -

Dr Owen :

so hence you use Metformin for this - and the dosage is 1500 mg per day

Dr Owen :

PLUS the metformin will help you to lose weight too

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
