I actually don’t know?
My hair growth got a bit bad 3 years ago, but it wasn’t that bad. Then over a year ago I started to get some on my chin (I already had small tiny tiny hair on my cheeks, a little on the upper sideburn, where it is normal, on the skin patch between my eyebrow and hairline and on my stomach along arms and hands). I was then checked for PCO in May, got the negative result in August, that my hormones were fine.
In October (2012) I got laser on my chin and a few days after, I had sideburns all the way down to my jaw line, along my jaw line, my hairline increased, I got a lot more hair over my eyebrow, on my arms, back, neck, throat and on my stomach and these were long hairs. Ever since it’s only gotten worse. The hairs has gotten longer and longer on my face and they grew quicklier too. On my body they got more thick too and 2 weeks ago there 4 4 cm long and dark hair appeared on my throat. This week they are even longer on my cheeks. It’s horrible and they’re black since I am of Indian origin. No one is this hairy in my family except for my bro.
I got on sprionolocatone on 7 of February and I take 50 mg every day. On thursday I am meeting with my skin doctor. He says that there is no explanation and it can not be the laser that caused all this hair growth on all of my body. My hormones are apparently fine, I got them checked in November and in December by a doctor and a skin doctor . It’s so frustrating and I’m not seeing any results with the medication as there can go up to 14 months before it works.
I feel that my hair grows, after I’ve eaten things with sugar as cake, candy etc. My skin doc tells me that it’s just a coinsidence, but I ate a loot of sweet things when I had laser done once! ;( Now I still eat it a couple of times during the week, but not as much as before, and I feel that it helps. However, earlier (before medication), when i had not eaten sweets etc, I felt that the hair still grew.
Sorry for the rant, I’m just frustrated and want to feel like a women again and be able to go out in the sunlight and wear my hair in a ponytail and not constantly hide from people…
