Understanding The PCOS Hirsutism Dynamic

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 20 Nov 2021

[article]Hirsutism refers to a condition in women that results in excessive growth of dark or coarse hair in a male-like pattern around face, chest and back. This excessive hair growth happens because of an increased level of male hormones called androgens. However, women already do produce androgens, an increase in their level leads to hirsutism.

While excessive growth at areas like face, chest, lower abdomen and back (wherein hair growth is not that common for women) is one of the most noticeable symptom of this condition, there are other conditions that might eventually develop due to increased levels of androgen. This process is called virilization.

Below are some of the common signs of virilization:

➼ Deepening voice
➼ Balding
➼ Acne
➼ Reduced breast size
➼ Increased muscle mass

PCOS: the most common cause of Hirsutism

As mentioned, this condition happens because of excess production of a hormone called androgen that is secreted by the ovaries or the adrenal glands. PCOD is a common condition that disrupts hormonal balance in women. In this condition, women’s ovaries get enlarged and develop small cysts on the outer edge.

This results in their improper functioning! 

Women with PCOD have an irregular menstrual cycle. This happens because women do not ovulate on a regular basis and thus, no periods.

You can manage your hirsutism by managing your PCOD.

You can manage PCOD with the right medical treatment and a couple of lifestyle and dietary changes. Your doctor might also recommend you to loose some weight and start eating healthy.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
