Hirsutism is a disease of the Hormones and Metabolism.
An abnormal growth of Hair on a woman's face and or body parts where normally hair should not grow is Hirsutism. It is defined as the presence of terminal coarse hair. Normally, we have hair on our body and the amount varies. If we have an abnormal growth of facial Hair and or on the body parts, then it is a problem. It is a result of imbalanced Hormones and the Metabolism. A woman has both the types of hormones, female type as well as a low level of male type hormones. The Hormone is androgens. If the level of male hormone increases, it may results in an abnormal Hair growth in females. The male Hair pattern will grow in females.

Do one thing, Go to a Homeopathy shop and buy Medorrhinum 10M. Take only 2 granules and dissolve them in a glass of water. Divide it into 3 doses and have 1 dose every day. Do not get scared if you may get your old symptoms back or Hair may also increased. Please let us know after 15 days and do not interfere the medicine by taking coffee.

Dear Monica
It could be a symptom of hormonal imbalance. If you have irregular periods it can be a symptom of that. Eat a healthy diet and get your test done.
