Almost 10% of testosterone is converted by the prostate and testes into DHT in males. If levels of DHT are low,it can cause the male to appear less masculine.
In the case of females, the ovaries will convert almost 10% of testosterone to DHT. Too much Dihydrotestosterone in women can cause hirsutism, which is excessive facial and pubic hair growth; amenorrhoea which means that menstrual periods cease; as well as increased acne.
