If you find any abnormal facial or body hair growth, you must undergo PCOS test. More than 10% women affected with PCOS suffers from the hirsutism condition. This is because, when you are affected with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), your ovaries start producing excessive amount of androgens. This leads to abnormal or male type hair growth on the face and other body parts.


Yes, acne not only looks ugly on our face but is also an indication of polycystic ovarian disease. How? Well, PCOS causes secretion of excessive testosterone in the body. This in turn increases the production of sebum in the skin cells leading to acne. However, not every woman with hormonal acne is affected by PCOS. It is best to do a confirmed blood test for PCOS.


But how can baldness and excessive hair growth both be symptoms of the same disease? Yes, the secretion of excessive androgen causes excessive hair growth on the body. However, on the scalp this leads to hair loss and baldness. Especially at the front of your head area and temples. Also identified as “female pattern hair loss”. The sad news is hair loss due to PCOD is permanent. The good news, you can stimulate new hair growth with proper PCOD treatment.
