I have a real problem with excess body hair; even when I was 9 years old, I got called a ‘werewolf’ by someone in my class because I was so hairy!! My body hair is pretty much just as bad as my dad’s is now D:
I believe excess body hair is linked to PCOS, which I think I might have, because my periods are quite irregular. They tend to come every 5 weeks, but occasionally it will come later than that or it doesn’t come at all. I also used to get excruciating period pain, but since cutting out processed foods and eating mainly real food, I hardly get any pain anymore. But the excess body hair and irregular periods are still a problem.
I have quite a lot of body hair too, as well as acne (horrible breakouts at ovulation). I know it’s hormonal because the only time I’ve had a pimple in the past 2 years is the one cycle I O’d and conceived baby #3.
Do you have any info re:metabolism/diet and PCOS? I seem to have some symptoms, but have no fertility issues whatsoever (expecting our third in 2.5 years!)
