  1. Hello,
    Thanks for the query,
    Considering your age at 16 years, you are in your adolescence and the irregular cycles are often related to immature reproductive hormones which often lead to anovulatory and delayed ovulation. However , polycystic ovarian syndrome again is very common in women which is one of the most common causes in young for irregular cycles along with hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia. Serum testosterone levels alone are not indicative of PCOD but one has to fulfil both teh clinical and biochemical criteria to establish PCOD, which consists of acne, hirsutism, acanthosis nigricans, oligomenorrhoea and polycystic ovaries on ultrasound.
    Testosterone levels in women vary. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, normal measurements range from 15 to 70 ng/dL. So in your case they are normal. So you need to get a thyroid profile, serum prolactin levels and also an ultrasound pelvis done to complete evaluation.
