Best of my knowledge, for those taking florinef: acne and extra body hair are possible side effects of it.

Hi, I have pcos but don't have the hair, acne or elevated testosterone. Pcos is actually caused by elevated insulin, which then can have an effect on the other hormones, but not always there are several ways pcos presents. Those that have the elevated testosterone though will usually have the have and acne.

Both forms however still cause infertility and can lead to diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

The hair growth became worse as the pots became worse. Quite clearly.

I see you've been on different forms of steriods, those can cause the hair growth and weight gain and cause diabetes or metabolic syndrome as well. Having a high heart rate doesn't cause hair growth as far as I know. However, an under lying medical condition may be causing both kinds of seemingly unrelated symptoms.

Pcos may be that cause if that is what you've been diagnosed with.

I do not have PCOS but I do get several cysts on my ovaries, each month, and I have had all sorts of lovely endometriosis issues. I don't have acne, never did really, and I don't think my testosterone levels have been checked. I do have a little more hair that's growing in, but I just attributed it to getting more mid-life and having kids! My waxer appreciates me. :rolleyes:

I always have (even b4 POTS) had higher than reference range testosterone levels but don't have excessive body hair. No doctor can explain this to me. I have no idea what it means and would love to know if it is significant.
