Excess Facial Hair in Women - 4 Reasons Behind it

DNB, MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Excess Facial Hair in Women - 4 Reasons Behind it

Excess facial hair growth in a woman results from a condition known as the hirsutism. The growth in hair pattern is exactly similar to that of an adult male. Areas, where abnormal hair growth is visible, are chest, above the lips, etc. These hairs are dark, but fine in nature. They are more commonly known as peach fuzz.

There could be a number of reasons for excess facial hair in a woman:

  1. Genetic reasons: Women from the Indian sub-continent or Mediterranean region are more likely to have facial hair as compared to their American, European and East-Asian counterparts. One of the common reasons for facial hair growth is genetics. It is a trend that runs in the family, it is more likely that a woman will get it. There is not much that can be done in this case except managing the hair growth effectively.
  2. Imbalance of the hormone: Abnormal hormone production can lead to hirsutism. In many cases, there are conditions where female starts producing male hormones leading to abnormal hair growth in the face. One of the most common causes of facial hair growth is polycystic ovarian syndrome (POS). This again is a hormonal imbalance leading to facial hair growth. Even adrenal gland related disorders such as Cushing’s syndrome, Adrenal cancer and congenital adrenal hyperplasia can lead to excess hair.
  3. Medications: Certain medication can lead to excess hair growth in the face. For instance, the certain steroid such as anabolic can lead to excess hair growth. Minoxidil is also known to cause hirsutism if taken in excess of 1 ml per day. Other medication related to testosterone and cyclosporine can lead to excess facial hair in females. It is advised to follow the doctor’s advice before consuming any of these medicines.
  4. Androgens: Although androgen is a male hormone, it is present in minute quantities in women too. Facial hair increase is nothing, but the sudden increased production of androgen in a female. Even birth control pills can lead to an increased production of androgen in the body. In these cases, it is very important to seek medical advice.

Treatment and remedies:
Medical help:
One should get medical help at the earliest if one of these conditions matches their symptoms:

  • The hair growth is sudden and abrupt.
  • One witness male features such as increases muscle, acne and reduced breast size.
  • Certain medication has led to the hair growth.

Home Remedies:

  • Usage of shaving, plucking and depilatory cream
  • Laser hair reduction procedure shows immediate results in stopping and countering any further hair growth.
  • Electrolysis can be tried to permanently damage the follicles.
  • Weight loss is another good solution to excess hair growth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

No it does Not. Lead a normal life unless your doctor tells you for bed rest & that includes Abstinence/ Masturbation. Both lead to contraction of Uterine Muscles, making risk of a miscarriage many fold ,in an already Vulnerable woman having a history of miscarriages.

This month you check with urine pregnancy test and if it is positive then consult a gynecologist. If it is negative then wait for 7 days for periods. To avoid further unwanted pregnancy use proper contraceptive methods with medical guidance.

Congratulations! cant advance your periods but delay them. I suggest you take progesterone tablets like norethisterone three times a day a few days before your period is expected to start and continue till the event. Your periods should then resume in two to three days time usually.

The chance is there but lower. Again at this age, there is increased chance of having birth defects in the baby. So, you should consult your doctor to find out, if she is having normal ''eggs". If not, she may need IVF with ovum donation. And after pregnancy confirmation, you should maintain contact with doctors as there are numerous methods to detect the birth defects during pregnancy. All the best.

Is he also interested to have a baby. The semen he gives you, flows out immediately or later. No harm. Anal sex is bad. Don`t entertain. If he has a lack of interest in sex or lack of erection at sex contact a sexologist.

The best time to get a pregnancy test is after 7 days of the missed period. You should take it at around the 21st of this month.

Hello doctor. I have one very bad habit. Whenever I miss my ex bf I try to damage myself. Yesterday, I inserted comb inside my vagina. after that I took oath, I will never insert anything inside. But please tell me, what could happen. Does it will lead to infertility? I am very afraid. Please.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you have taken an oath never to repeat this behavior, we do not need to worry about the effects. Any way inserting anything into your vagina is very serious and may not only cause injury but will also introduce infection. I don?t know if you are aware but combs are loaded with bacteria! However you need to be concerned also about your reaction to the loss of your boyfriend: I think that the sexual association with him must have been pretty strong to cause you to indulge in this action. Also for some reason it seems that you could be angry with yourself for the breakup. However turning that anger towards yourself is capable of causing a lot of harm. You are still very young and have a long life ahead of you and will probably meet a lot of boys to choose from. So be patient and bide your time for the right guy to turn up. Anyway at your age there are a lot of things to do vis-�-vis your studies and building a good career. If you are well educated and have good career prospects you will become highly desirable to a lot of guys. So do not distract yourself at this age. Also this behavior does not augur well for your self-control or the lack of it. There may be some mitigating circumstances in your childhood that needs some attention. Do meet with a counselor and deal with them and make yourself a balanced person.

Dear Lybrate user. Your vagina is so elastic that it will even come back to its original tightness even after giving birth to a baby. Therefore please don't worry about the elasticity. Do some kegal pelvic floor exercises. Take care.
