You may want to consider testing for testosterone levels if you notice any unusual symptoms including:
decreased libido (sex drive)
acne, especially if you are under 40
This test measures the total amount of testosterone in your blood.
No, you do not need to fast for this test, but it is recommended that you take your sample first thing in the morning.

Low levels of testosterone can produce a range of symptoms including:
low sex drive (libido)

decrease in body hair growth
