What Causes: Hirsutism (Excessive Hair Growth)
Hirsutism is usually caused by an excess number of male hormones or androgens. This is common in women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). However, it is possible to have hirsutism even if you don’t have PCOS. Other causes of hirsutism include a reaction to certain medication, being overweight, alternative hormonal conditions, or using anabolic steroids.
