High testosterone

Hi all, I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 16 when my GP decided to do an ultrasound due to stomach cramps. They told me that as I was not symptomatic of PCOS to continue as I was and not to worry until I wanted to try for a baby. I decided a few weeks ago to go to the doctors and request for my PCOS to be checked up on as I am now 23 and concerned what could have developed in these 7 years. He did blood tests and found I had high levels of testosterone and wants to repeat the test. I don't really understand what this means and whether it is a good or bad thing in terms or fertility? I am very concerned about when I start trying for a baby and if this is a sign of infertility in any way. Please help if you have any advice or a similar experience. Thanks.

No, high testosterone is pcos so nothing to worry about really, we are not infertile in any way, it is extremely rare not to conceive because of pcos, some ladies take a little longer and some need extra help!!
