I haven't had a period for 3 mths. I have increased facial hair and worse hair on my head.
I am waiting for hormone results.

What could this be? How can it be treated?

Sounds like your estrogen levels have dropped and your progesterone levels are not high enough to make you have a period... Your testosterone levels are now too high because your estrogen levels have dropped... Get your hormones taken when you feel worse...since you are missing periods... Usually when you are feeling worse is when your hormones are at their worst. IF you an wait until you have a period, then have your estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels taken on the 21st day of your cycle!
