We all have hair on almost every part of our bodies, but some people have more than others. This can be embarrassing, distressing and difficult to manage, for both men and women.

In pre-menopausal women, a common cause of hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition which causes irregular periods and cysts on the ovaries.
Other possible causes for hirsutism can include hormonal conditions, side-effect of certain medications, obesity, and even simply getting older can lead to more hair to pluck, especially after the menopause. However, sometimes excess hair growth has no identifiable cause; this tends to be more common in skin types from a Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South Asian background. It can also be hereditary.
If you suspect that your hair growth is abnormal, it is best to consult your doctor as it may be a symptom of another problem.
