Well today i’m going to tell you about the next step. Many people with PCOS have hirsutism of the growth of excessive hair on the face. I have had ‘sideburns’ for many years and have taken to wearing my hair down so that they’re covered. I used to trim with scissors, I didn’t want to shave because they’d probably look much worse, and waxing at home didn’t work very well.
When I went to see my doctor I mentioned it to her and she referred me to the dermatologist who I saw the other week. He said that my ‘sideburns’ are perfect for electrolysis or laser hair removal but it’s something I would have to pay for myself. However what he did do is prescribe me VANIQA which is an eflornithine cream. I was told to apply the cream twice a day and it will gradually reduce the amount of hair.
I noticed when using it for the first time that a little goes a long way, and so this should last me a good while yet!
I was told that within 4 months of using it I should see a difference, and if I don’t then it’s not working for me. I though I might do a monthly update so that you can see if it’s working, and whether it’s worth trying for you.
