Due to having premenstral dysphoric disorder (PMDD) my gyno got all my hormone tests done again as apparently low testosterone can give bad PMS symptoms. (hadnt had all my female type hormones tested in 18 mths) and now my testosterone level which was high normal, (I have a beard so my body was over producing it) but my testosterone is now at ZERO. (im not even 40 years old) So I ended up having to get a testosterone implant put under my skin. So I just looked up to see what can cause testosterone issue and it says •Disease or damage to the hypothalamus or pituitary gland. can be one of the causes of low testosterone http://www.buzzle.com/articles/symptoms-of-low-testosterone-in-women.html ... so im wondering who else here has ZERO testosterone levels which CFS/ME may have factored in? What dont make sense to me is that with zero testosterone, my sex drive is still high... it dont make sense, so Im now worried that maybe my testosterone levels are dysregulated with it going high at times and low at other times??? Is that possible?? Worried now that I may end up finding that I have way too high testosterone with the implant now in me if that is going on. Im worried now cause i forgot that testosterone is a androgen .. and due to the study which said that androgens may increase viral replication of XMRV.. (what if my body has gone into damage control and zeroed out my testosterone as a self protection thing due to virus?). I tried to voice my fear to the gyno but of cause gyno didnt understand any of my fears of the XMRV stuff and didnt even know of its existance.
