Could I be hormonally inbalanced?

Any doctors or nurses out there that can answer this question?

I am a woman in her late 20's and I have an insanely high sex drive. I usually want sex more than once a day. I am also given to aggressive moods at times, I can just snap over something incredibly stupid... and I also gain muscle really easily. I've always had a very muscular, athletic body type.
Yet, in other ways I'm pretty feminine. I have a soft, high-pitched voice, I'm not particularly hairy and I cry very easily.

I guess what I'm asking is, could I have abnormal levels of different surplus testosterone or progesterone?

  • yes - there are many different types of hormones though - don't focus on one or two get a full workup. there are alot of possible explanations for what you describe though... take a good look at your dietary and sleeping habits and any lifestyle choices that may be affecting you.

  • I'd suggest to your doc to have a few tests done. Also, are you on any medications including birth control? There is also sex addiction.

  • Aside from everything listed.....I would say wanting sex more than once a day would mean something is "out of balance". But that is my opinion.

  • wanting sex more than once a day doesnt mean there is something wrong with you, if you gain muscle easily it could be b/c you have an athletic background some people naturally gain muscle easily which is good b/c a more muscular body burns calories at a higher right it may just be that you need to work on your anger management skills
