Hyperandrogenism (https://homosaurus.org/v3/homoit0002842)

People with hyperandrogenism have higher-than-typical levels of testosterone and/or other androgens. In people with XX chromosomes, hyperandrogenism can result in the development of secondary sex characteristics that are associated with the influence of testosterone (such as facial and body hair) to varying degrees. Hyperandrogenism may or may not be the result of an underlying intersex variation, but it is common in several variations (including CAH and PCOS). People with hyperandrogenism who aren’t intersex will nonetheless often have many experiences in common with intersex people, such as encountering exclusion and discrimination in sex-segregated contexts like sports.
