Updated guidelines for those with excess hair were just published online by the Androgen Excess and PCOS Society. If you want to see them on line they can be found here.

1. All women with excess hair or hirutism should have blood level testing for testosterone and free testosterone

2. All women with signs of elevated male hormones should have testing for 17-hydroxprogesterone, testing at the appropriate time of the day and the appropriate time of the cycle is important as well

3. Even if blood testing doesn’t indicate you have abnormal levels, the new society guidelines suggest treatment, for this you have to see your gyno and discuss

4. Lifestyle changes have positive effects on the hirsutism, improving all aspects of the hormone disorders that cause this
