I have a very bad case of facial hair. It's becomming more and more dreadful for me to go out in public since it is so bad. I mean it is just like a man's facial hair. When I was younger I tried Nair, waxing, plucking and shaving. I am not interested in electolysis due to the long, painful procedure. I am interested in laser hair removal, but have read a lot where it is not permanent and hair can regrow in lighter so when you go to get the removal done again it's not effective due to the color of the hair. My menstrual cycle is very unpredictable. Most of the time it is very light and lasts a couple days to lasting a month and very heavy. My hair is thinning on my head. On my legs you can see my pores. Looks like chicken skin.

Sounds like you have PCOS.  You may want to go to your OBGYN to get checked out.  They can put you on medication to help the reactions.  Also, I have discovered that the foods we eat cause these reactions as well.  I to suffer from it and it has taken a toll on my social life.  I just started my laser hair removal treatments.  I am seeing a dramatic difference.  My confidence has improved and I am even starting to loose weight.  Wish you the best of luck.

Hi
Im Hye and I too suffer from an extreme case of facial hair. I've been tested for just about everything there and all my test results come back normal. The sad thing about it all is that I have a 10yr old and she gets picked on alot about my appearance. Personally I feel so bad for her I don't know what to do. It has messed up my relationships and my self esteem is way down. I've looked into laser treatment had test studies but yet I can't afford them right now. Is there something else that can be done?
