okay second reason is higher androgens that aren't necessarily caused by this

increase in this enzyme but your androgens are just higher okay androgens

are male hormones but females have antigens but not in the quantities that

males have if a female has too much androgens she's going to get facial hair

acne because of the enlargement of the sebaceous gland or the oil gland and

large learnings what's that going to do it's gonna drop the voice a deeper voice

axillary hairs armpit hair and a female this is called polycystic ovarian

and lessen the amount of DHT being produced all right next one androgens how
