I am 22 yrs old I recently had a miscarriage


Q: I am 22 yrs old I recently had a miscarriage about 3 months ago now since then I have had severe painful acne, rapid hair growth on my face and arms no matter what I do my hair will grow back within a day or two after shaving/ waxing ect I do not eat much and am unable to lose weight I also keep getting boils on my inner thighs.
Please help as it is affecting me emotionally as well as physically.
Thank you.


A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
The possible causes of your hirsutism are polycystic ovary syndrome, Cushing syndrome, androgens producing tumors, usage of drugs that increase androgen levels like danazol etc.
By clinical examination and investigations like estimating levels of blood sugar, free insulin, testosterone and cortisol etc and undergoing ultrasound can help in finding out the possible cause of your problem and treatment can be planned accordingly.

Take care
