Elevated Androgens

Geraardsbergen, Belgium

#1 Feb 16, 2013
Hi everyone!

I have had acne on my back since I was 14 years old, I am now 26. I also have male hairgrowth on chest, belly ... small breasts (weight goes to my ass and thighs :p) For the rest I look very female. No one would think I am a man or something. I am 1m76 and weigh 61 kg.

I was first omnivore, then vegan for 10 years now. I changed my diet a lot, and no matter what I do, my hormones are always out of balance.
Im also moderatly active, I dance and ride my bike a lot, walk.

Whenever I get my blood taken, it shows high testoterone and too high androgens.
I went to the hospital, they did a scan on my belly to check for PCOS (with a thing they use for pregnant woman, with the gel), but saw nothing. They sad I did not have PCOS.

I wonder: why are my hormones so out of balance? What else is there I can have?
