What should we do about male-pattern hair growth on females? The medical term for this condition is hirsutism. Hirsutism affects 5-10% of premenopausal women and is usually an indication of an underlying endocrine disorder like polycystic ovarian syndrome. Women with hirsutism have coarse dark hairs in androgen-sensitive areas like the upper lip, chin, back, and buttocks. Please see your physician to investigate the root cause of the hirsutism.
There was a recent meta-analysis, where many studies are combined to get a more robust result. The best treatment for hirsutism is birth control pills with combined estrogen-progestin pills. Other medications that help curb this hair growth are antiandrogens like finasteride or metformin a medication used mostly for diabetics.
