High testosterone levels and PCOS
(San Diego, CA)
How are you? My name is Heather and I live in San Diego, California. I've been enjoying reading your website over the last week and I wanted to write and ask you a question about drinking wine and acupuncture.
I've been seeing an acupuncturist that I really like here in San Diego. I recently completed a comprehensive female hormone panel saliva test and it showed that I have high testosterone levels. I was told that I have too much sugar in my diet with possible PCOS.
I think it may have to do with my wine consumption. I have a 2, sometime 3 glasses of wine just about every day (sometimes more on the weekends.) I just wanted to get your thoughts on drinking and acupuncture/fertility. Could this what could be causing my problem?
I'm 37 and have been trying for 3 years. There is no explanation for my infertility, and I'm not overweight (well, maybe 10 pounds.) My husbands sperm test was as follows: high viscosity and 40% motility, rapidly progressive was 30, sluggish 10, ph was 8.5, morphology was 76, concentration was 30. He doesn't drink alcohol at all.
I appreciate any advice you could give me.
Thank you so much!
