which birth control is best with unwanted facial hair


#1

Which ingredient is best to help with female facial hair - I guess leveling out hormones? My laser/electrologist said birth control pills can help but she did not tell me a type/ingredient or brand. Thank you!

Acetate of cytoproterone is the component that helps for excess of hair.
In Europe you can get it in a pill called Diane 35.
Best is to check with your doctor anyway.
Hope this helps.

As far as I know, Diane 35 is also sold and known as Dianette or Diane in different countries. Ask your doctor/gyno about what birth control pill in your country contains ciproterone acetate.

Yasmin should help… but just help a little. It contains a type of progestagen that is not really anti-androgenic, but just not likely to have androgenic side effects or make androgenicity worse, as it is the case with some other progestagens in birth control pills. Ciproterone acetate is an anti-androgenic substance, so its effect is more dramatic, and the one you are really looking for, IMHO.

i take yasmin, it regulates my period but i haven’t seen any change with the reduction of hair. i’ve been taking it for quite a while too, and have no changes in hair growth.
