Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders, effecting approximately 5%-10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old) and is thought to be one of the leading causes of female sub-fertility.

One of the problems associated with PCOS is excess hair growth (hirsutes) and can occur in more than half the women who suffer from the condition. The hair is mainly located on the face, the lower abdomen and chest. The hair growth is due to the increased level of the hormone testosterone.

For many women, having to deal with excess facial and bodily hair can have significant psychological consequences. Because physical appearance has so much to do with how people relate to each other, hirsutism can be a painful experience. Women may be chronically stressed by the amount of time and money they spend removing unwanted hair, to say nothing of the frustration of having it continually grow back.

What can you do to treat the hair growth?

Unwanted hair can be removed by shaving, waxing, hair-removing creams and electrolysis. However, these methods need to be repeated many times over an indefinite period.

A cream called Eflornithine may be prescribed to rub on affected areas of skin. It works by counteracting an enzyme involved in the production of hair in the skin. Some research trials suggest that it can reduce unwanted hair growth, although this effect quickly wears off after stopping treatment.

Drugs taken by mouth can also treat hair growth. They work by reducing the amount of testosterone you produce, or by blocking its effect.

Other antitestosterone drugs can be advised by a specialist if the above treatments do not help.
