Please help as it is affecting me emotionally as well as physically.
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.
