Extra androgen comes from medications such as certain progestins used in
some brands of birth control pills
or bodybuilding steroids that contain androgens or have some effects similar to androgens.
Other medicines may indirectly cause the body to manufacture extra androgen hormones. These include some medicines to treat nausea, schizophrenia, agitation, epileptic seizures, migraine headaches, bipolar disorder, aggression and high blood pressure, as well as estrogens and opiate medications.
