Hair Loss, Facial Hair growth

About 12 years ago I was diagnosed with Hypothyroid. Since then, I have has major weight gain. I also have recently noticed hair loss and facial hair. I have thick black hairs, and have grown lip hair and side burns. My doctors wont answer my questions because I am a girl and should not have this happening. What should I do???

This pattern is not likely thyroid related, would talk your Dr. about possible PCOS or insulin resistance as a cause of the symptoms.
