LH, Testosterone

I got my levels today- since they confirmed the PCOS diagnosis, they said the LH:FSH ratio was consistent with PCOS, anyhow i got the testosterone level today and they said it was 68 (i guess it should be under 75 they said) but that anything over 30 its really too much... They said we won't do anything different this cycle, but we need to get the LH level down.. Does anyone know how that is done?? are there any ways of lowering testosterone either?? Has anyone had similar ? Thanks in advance!

Have you had any other symptoms? Did they tell you your LH or FSH results? I know that they can prescribe medication to lower your LH, and it seems like that really has had amazing results with people trying to conceive. Good Luck!!!

I was given spironalactone (aldactone) not sure about spelling. It's a blood pressure medicine that's side effect is lowering testosterone, My hair stopped falling out and stopped growing on my face. It worked for me.
