The blood test show that I have more testosterone and low e2 and progesterone. Further I have high facial hair and hair on nipples. This shows that I have more androgens.

Brief Answer: Hirsutism. Detailed Answer: Dear Ma'm If this hair growth is something new definitely you need treatment. before starting any hormonal replacement I would suggest you few more tests to find out the cause of hormonal imbalance. please check your LH , FSH , TSH , FT4, cortisol as well. all tests done fasting 8 am and on 2nd day of your periods. After the results we can take the call whether to treat and how to treat. Regards!

Brief Answer: Medicines is the answer. Detailed Answer: Dear ma'm, hormonal imbalance will be restored with medicines as per the test reports. as far as breast enlargement is concerned that required cosmetic surgery called breast augmentation. Regards!

Hi Doctor, I have already taken T3,T4,TSH tests and results are as follows. T3- 89 ng/dl (reference range is 60-200) T4-7.5mg/dl(reference range is 4.5-12) TSH-1.3(reference range is 0.3 to 5.5) Is it mandatory to take all other tests that you have mentioned for Hirsutism. Regarding breast enlargement- Does increasing progesterone and estrogen levels is breast enlargement not possible? I know many people who are doing that by taking bovine ovary and pueraria mirifica

I do not want to have any surgery. If we keep aside Hirsutism.. is there any medication to lower testosterone?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Minal Mohit 10 minutes later
Brief Answer: yes there are! Detailed Answer: Dear Ma'm, There are anti androgens and there are conjugated estrogens and progesterones. But what do you need will be decided only by your test reports. breast augmentation is not possible by medicines or hormones or creams , those are fake advertisements and they don't work. Regards!

Brief Answer: How will it help? Detailed Answer: Dear Ma'm I am really not sure how will it help you but I can tell you one thing if you try any such thing without evidence it will prevent you from actual diagnosis and might do more harm than benefit. for cosmetic reasons, if you are doing it, you will not see immediate results rather go for waxing or hair removing creams or laser. Still if you insist antiandrogens like cyproterone acetate can be taken. Reagards!
