Re: OK, here's the question I have

No, what I am saying is that once your skin is sensitized in the womb to respond, like a male's, to testosterone, it doesn't take the normal male levels of testosterone to produce male-type facial hair. Even the levels of testosterone which are normal for a female can produce male-type facial hair in those circumstances.

That is part of the reason why many females whose testosterone levels are perfectly normal for a female find themselves will male-type moustache growth, while other females with the same adult testosterone levels but who have not had the fetal exposure to such high levels of testosterone may have no moustache growth at all.

One situation in which it's quite common for an absolutely normal female to have high levels of fetal exposure to testosterone is where she has a twin who is male.
