Use a Stepwise Approach to Treat Hirsutism
Women will need your help managing hirsutism.
About 10% of women have excess male-pattern hair growth commonly on the face, chest, back, abdomen, etc...typically due to high androgen levels. Most cases are in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Metformin may be used for PCOS. But don't prescribe it specifically for hirsutism...it doesn't seem to work better than placebo.
