Nurs Times. 2006 Feb 21-27; 102(8):26-8.NT

Abstract

Female hirsutism is an embarrassing condition that threatens both a woman's perception of her femininity and her self-esteem. There are various causes of excessive facial hair in women, the most common being polycystic ovary syndrome. Periods of hormonal flux such as pregnancy and the menopause can exacerbate the condition.
