Hi lybrate-user Hirsutism is due to hormonal imbalance which is due to PCOS .start daily exercise to lose weight ,mostly on lower abs .adopt a healthy life style ,avoid junk foods ,include green leafy veggies n fresh fruits in your diet. Drink 2-3 lits of water. Having flaxseeds is good but I dnt think its helpful in treating hirsutism. Take opinion of gynaecologist, she ll start you on some hormonal pills. For d hairs on upper lips n chin ,if de are very thick thn you cn go for laser hair removal but its only 80 %.Thanx.
