Androgens in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Beyond Testosterone.

PCOS (Reproductive Metabolic Syndrome) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age group (5-15%). One of the major criteria for diagnosis is clinical or biochemical (Total testosterone >55ng/dl or free testosterone 9pg/ml) hyperandrogenism. There has always been a disparity between FG score and Testosterone (T) levels in PCOS women. Around half of those with mild hirsutism and small proportion of those with moderate-severe hirsutism are not associated with biochemical hyperandrogenism.
