What is Hirsutism?
When women have thick, dark hair on their face, neck, chest, stomach, lower back, buttocks, or thighs, it is called hirsutism.
A doctor will check what’s causing hair growth and you may have a blood test to measure your hormone levels. A change in your hormone levels is a common cause of hirsutism.
Hirsutism is caused by an increase in hormones called androgens, which your body is more sensitive to, or both.
The most common cause is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), but sometimes there is no clear cause.
In rare cases, it can be caused by certain medications, anabolic steroid use, other hormonal conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome and acromegaly, or tumors that affect your hormone levels.
To treat hirsutism, your doctor may suggest removing or lightening hair at home with shaving, waxing, plucking, depilatory creams, or bleaching.
They may also suggest using a prescription cream to slow hair growth on your face (eflornithine cream), take the birth control pill that can help control hormone levels, or lose weight if you’re overweight, which can also help to control hormone levels.
If these have not helped after 6 months, your doctor can refer you to a specialist. They may recommend other medications to control your hormone levels.
My mother had something to say about it. She didn’t like it at all and told me to get it under control, but I didn’t care. I refused to shave it.
‘I’m just building my confidence, it’s okay to be a little different.
‘Many people are self-aware, but you have to learn to feel comfortable in your own skin, that can be very difficult.
“The universe wanted it to be so, so I’m going to trust it.”
Hirsutism is a condition that causes women to have thick, dark hair that grows on their face, neck, chest, stomach, lower back, butt, or thighs.
It is often caused by a change in hormone levels and an increase in hormones called androgens, where your body is more sensitive to these hormones or both.
The most common cause is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which caused the condition in Alma Torres, 27, who lives in the Bronx, New York.
She developed polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) at the age of 15, which caused her to develop excess facial hair.
But after eight years of shaving, waxing and bleaching, she decided to grow a full beard.
Last August, Alma ditched her razors four years ago to hug her natural beard – and now she’s using her story to inspire others.
When Alma was a teenager, she got dark facial hair for the first time at 16 and shaved for the first time after negative comments from students in her class.
But last year she celebrated her four-year ‘beard anniversary’, the anniversary of the day she started growing it naturally.
She says she’s now learned to love her natural body, so negativity from other people doesn’t affect her.
College student Caiopa Jade Marja, 23, from Farmville, Virginia, was brutally bullied because of the thick, dark hair that grew on her face on her body.
She spent her school days feeling insecure after being ruthlessly bullied by her peers for being “ too hairy ” to the point where she would sneak in a razor every day to shave her face and arms.
It wasn’t until 2016, when she was 19 years old, that she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries function.
Klyde said that when her facial hair started to grow her mom told her to ‘get it under control’ but she didn’t care and refused to save it, saying ‘The universe wanted it to be so I’m going to believe it ‘
‘I have PCOS, which means that as a woman I have more testosterone in my body. I was kind of bullied for being “too hairy” and having facial hair, “Caiopa said.
The three main features of PCOS are irregular periods, too much androgen and high levels of ‘male’ hormones in the body and polycystic ovaries, where the ovaries become enlarged.
Caiopa recalled using hair removers on her arms and throwing a razor to school to shave her face, and said, “It was a bit gruesome to think about it now.”
In June 2019, she started discovering a lot of social media pages owned by other hairy or ‘bearded’ women, which was important to her as she didn’t know there was a whole community of women like her.
After eight years of regular shaving, she decided to drop the razors in December 2019 and hasn’t looked back since.
