Excess Female Hair Growth

Do you think you might have excess hair growth?

Are you dealing with hair growth where you wouldn’t expect it?


Maybe you are wondering if you are just a hairy person. Or perhaps something else is going on with your body.


The truth is that a female should not have excess, coarse, dark hair growth on their face, chest, or abdomen.


Hirsutism (Excess Hair Growth in females) 

If you have this, you have the medical condition known as hirsutism and you probably have an underlying hormonal imbalance.


What is hirsutism?

Hirsutism is excess hair growth, most often noticeable on the chin, cheeks and neck. Women will  have thick, dark hair on their chest, tummy, lower back, buttocks or thighs.

This condition often arises from excess male hormones (androgens), primarily testosterone.


How is excess female hair growth treated?

Hirsutism will not resolve until the hormonal imbalance is identified and properly treated.

Simply starting a medication and hoping that it helps seldom successfully treats the coarse hair growth.
