Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

From history and high testosterone test most likely you have PCOS

Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

But in order to confirm PCOS you need some more blood tests and possibly ovaries scan

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
is my testosterone levels high?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
What should I do?
Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

Testosterone high. But we usually do not interpret it alone we need to do SHBG levels also. I would advise to make an appointment with GP and request for referral to an Endocrinologist who would do all the work up for you to confirm the diagnosis

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Ok is there anything else I need know about it
Expert:  Zee J replied 13 days ago.

Polycystic ovary syndrome - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Best of luck
