Hello everyone, I have a concern that I wanted to share. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and it has started causing me to have facial hair which is very embarrassing. Doc said its related to hormones. Adrenal glands are not balanced causing more steroids in the body which produces excess body hair. I am amritdhari and would like to know if its ok of shave off excessive facial hair since the hormones are responsible for it.

shaving is the simply WORST thing you could do as apart from busting your amrit  you will also cut finer hair causing thicker , longer regrowth . Try to control your blood sugar by PCOS diet , reduce /eliminate dairy and processed foods as extra xenoestrogens and mammalian estrogen will make your body create more androgens and create more male like hairs .

if you sort out your diet the hair will normalise , drinking peppermint tea daily will help also

I have been on this diet for a while and am taking spearmint tea. But nothing seems to work. Even had a surgery couple years ago.

don't shave that just makes it come back worse. I used to shave my chest and other areas before and trust me it grows back thicker and hairier lol, and it expands as well

No I am not on metformin because I don't have insulin sensitivity. I was told Spironolactone, but it has alot of side effects. I am trying herbs like saw palmetto pills to see if that will work.
