Estrogen and facial hair

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen and facial hair


Aside from the normal areas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the not so obvious peach fuzz tend to grow. My face has begun growing very obvious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> underneath my eyes beginning about a quarter inch below the lower eyelids which continues down and fills the width of my cheeks. These hairs are long enough to easily grab with tweezers and gives my face a blotchy 5 o-clock shadow. At this point I can not hide this with make up, and am too afraid to epilate.
Might this settle down and go away after longer usage of this pill? If I stop the pill, will the facial hair go away or will it stay at this level for the rest of my life.
I did not have a period for 2 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I got a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. I finally went to an endocronologist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found out that I had a tumor on my ovary. It was causing my hormone levels to be wrong. I had way too much testosterone in my system. I had my ovary removed and I have had a regular period since. That was 10 years ago. I was 17. I still have the facial hair. I was told that once the hair folical is activated, it does not go away. I would have to get laser hair removal done.

These are very painful and embarrassing! I have very fair skin (redhead) and these sores are starting to scar! PLEASE HELP!

I am a 28 year old middle eastern female <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I too cant keep up with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. My nipples are scarred because ive been plucking hairs around and now the hair is ingrown so I feel so unattracitve because of all the scars and I feel like no man wants me.. Its not that bad but it is to me if that makes any sense.. I shave my legs andt the hair grows so fast and so rough the next morning they are so spikey. I cant keep up with the maintenance.
Most thyroid folks feel best at the higher end of the normal range. Low thyroid can cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> is a whole different beast. It is not related to thyroid but to your heredity and your androgen levels ie: testosterone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone. It can be a marker for PCOS.too. Has any of this been tested or discussed with you? Once I got my own hormones straightened out, I had laser hair removal which worked well.
Now I only rarely get a regular migraine with aura <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> instead get the strange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> migraine that makes everything painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sensitive, from the top of my scalp on one side, the cheek, the gums, and down my neck. I take NSAIDs when required. Hope this helps.
I am 61 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have had problems with red, itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> skin around my eyes and mouth going on 20 years. Recently the burning, itchy and red areas on my face has become much worse. I am now also experiencing intense itching in my ears. I thought I had a sensitivity to nuts and chocolate so I eliminated them from my diet, but this didn't help. I also have tried eliminating high fat dairy products like ice cream and sour cream, but no improvement.
It is now also used to treat inherited hair loss (androgenetic alopecia), the most common cause of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss, as well as for other causes of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss. How Well It Works Minoxidil slows <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> grows new hair. In men, the 5% solution appears to be more effective than the 2% solution, but it costs more and may have more side effects.1 Some people who take minoxidil only grow hair that is thin and wispy or similar to peach fuzz.
Besides of other symptoms, I have constant problems with my face, such as acne <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I also have problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. Would laser treatment help me/with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> growth? Because this is what doctors recommended for me. I also have problems on my legs, but those are due to ingrowing hair-which also has to do with this disease. I haven't worn a skirt or short pants since I was 12 or so. I feel like I'm missing out on enjoying myself and my youth.
As for hysterectomy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> influence on hormones...I have no idea. Perhaps it's the influence on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. If not, I would think a look into Testosterone & Dhea-s (or perhaps Testosterone alone would suffice.) P.C.O.S. can cause hirsutism (and a number of women who suffer hypothyroidism, also have PCOS). As can adrenal problems. I would ask your doctor to take a look into your hormones (estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone...), if only to put your mind at ease.
One test that did come back irregular was a hormone test. My blood levels of Testosterone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>estrogen</span> were in normal limits, but then I decided to do a full hormonal 24hr urine panel. The Urine results showed my Testosterone levels were very low for someone my age. and one doctor recommended going on Testosterone Replacement Thereapy.
Mine was on the vulvar on the left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on the pubic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> area along the left side. I had it for over 2 yrs. I went to a Gyno. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he looked through this microscope divice and found small white sores so he did a biopsy and he said I had Eczema. He prescribed a cream that I have to use twice a day for a month and I have to take one Zyrtec a day. The cream is called Clobetasol 0.05% its generic for Temovate 0.05%. I've been using it for a week now and it really really works.
I am wondering if hormone levels play a part; maybe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>estrogen</span> (men <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> women have both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>estrogen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> testosterone). At 9 mos post my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> is growing back in but I in the last few weeks I notice the shower drain is filling back up again with lost hair. May need to check and see if its the short hair like meakea says.
Started Spironolactone for mild acne <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> last Feb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> noticed some new <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> growth on my scalp as well as slight reduction in the few dark hairs on my chin. Because of the spiro I was told I had to go back on the pill. I went on Yaz in April, hated it and got off it in May. Was off pill for a month and then went back on trisprintec in June. Got off trisprintec in Sept because I panicked over the hair loss and thought that was to blame.
I have never had any problems with oily skin or oily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> ever. I wash my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> daily <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> condition. I have not changed my daily regimen in 2 years One thing I have tried was applied Shower to Shower powder to my hair before going to bed and washed out in the morning (not the sexiest looking thing at night but it helps). It drastically reduced the oil, but came back 2 days later. The only thing I worry about is clogging the glands that are producing the oil, so I don't do it daily...
I do not want to deal with this for another year of trial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> error. I have researched PCOS. I don't have any excessive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>, however I did have an ovarian cyst burst about 9 weeks before my show in October. Hopefully someone has some sort of direction with which to point me or alternative lens for which to dissect this problem as it is as alarming as it is frustrating! Thank you!
Whilst talking to a very good friend lately, I mentioned the unwanted visitor, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she mentioned that maybe, JUST maybe I may have follicles on my ovaries (? WHAT in the world are those???) and that is why I am having a very hard time conceiving, could she be right? Could follicles actually cause new facial hair growth, or would that be a result of hormones, or are those related somehow? I don't want a beard, that would make my unsupportive b/f jealous, as he can't grow one. HELP!!!!
I am underweight for my age <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> height but have lots of problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> (way to much for a girl!) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> excess body hair in general and extremely oily skin. I know that there is definitely an underlying problem with this acne and facial hair and feel that hormones must be in play. I am on birth control, but even when I was off of it I have very regular periods so I don't think that I have PCOS. I am wondering if the hypothyroidism has anything to do with it? Any suggestions?
Iv'e been on birth control for years without having many problems, but for the past year and a half, I've too been losing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. I was on Aleese, started losing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I seemed to start getting a little extra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> "fuzz" which was just freakin wonderful considering I now have to Nair my face! Then, I switched to Ortho tri Cyclen in hopes that my problems would end. Well they haven't, and I have no idea what to do. Im 23, feel fine, I exercise, and Im in great health.
I have very long, dark <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> thick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> on my face (upper lip, neck, cheeks, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> allover my face) on my arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> legs is just so horribly thick that even when I wax the hair just breaks off before the follicle...which leaves huge fat pepperspots. My stomach has long hair and the lower you go down my waist the more it looks like a mans body. My buttocks and my private areas are very dark and have long and thick hair allover. My back,shoulders, chest and breasts also have very thick dark hair.
I have had issues with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> since my early 20’s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it’s becoming increasingly difficult to manage. PRESCRIPTIONS: Levothyroxine – 125 mcg Lexapro – 225 mg Fenofibrate – 160mg Vitamin D – 1.25 mg (1X week) Any thoughts? Thank you.
That causes your body to produce male hormones which can result in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span>. It also causes obesity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> infertility. I'm not a doctor, just someone who has multiple health problems and has had to research, study and learn. Also, I've read that being premenopausal can bring about extra hair because of declining estrogen levels.
Thank you Annie, at one point in my peri pause I was taking low dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>estrogen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> progesterone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my cholesterol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tyglycerides shot way up so the doctor immediately took me off. However if I may say, while I was on it, it did make my face look more youthful and the lines softened and I was really pleased what it did for my face? I noticed on the other post that they talk mostly about loose skin on the arms, what about loose skin or lines on the face?
He finally wrote me a letter back two weeks later to say that he was puzzled because everything came back normal, but to continue the doxy to see if it helps the acne, even though it wouldn't fix the overgrowth of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span>/body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irregular periods. I wasn't thrilled with this "see if it helps" resolution of his because I felt like he was just trying to make the symptoms better instead of finding what was causing it, but he's been my PC doc since birth so I listened to him.
Have been taking arimidex for 50 days. Am beginning to get a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> all over face) long enough to hold between fingers. Is the arimidex causing this?
It also confirmed that I was not going through an early menopause. However in this last year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> more recently <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>facial</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hair</span> on my chin has increased <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I feel I am losing hair daily when I comb reach morning and my period is shorter. I am concerned these my be indications of progesterone or hormones not being quite right and impacting my fertility. Can you help?
