How should I get rid of unwanted hair?
Q: I am a 23 year old unmarried girl. I have the problem of unwanted body hair all over my body ie face, chin, chest, stomach, back. I have done a thyroid test. The report is as follows: Free T3: 3.39; Free T4: 1.22; TSH: 2.00. Haemoglobin: 13.5, Eosinophil: 03%. Please suggest me what should be done next as I am worried. Also I would like to ask whether it is normal for me if I do not masturbate at all.
A:The problem is unwanted hair - you should be investigated for polycystic ovarian disease. Diagnosis depends on body weight, menstrual regularity, and laboratory features. There are effective medications available for excess hair, like cyproterone, spironolactone, finasteride, etc. You should see an endocrinologist and get started on one or more. The choice of medicine will depend on your specific features. It is perfectly normal not to masturbate; it is also normal to masturbate.
