i am 15yrs old and have been getting irregular periods. My first one was at the age of fourteen. i have also begun to get a lot of facial hair around the upperlip, chin and now it seems as if i ahev grown a beard. I also weigh about 64kg. i am very concerned about my health. what should i do? could i have Polycystic ovary syndrome? And would electrolysis be safe to get rid of my facial hair?

User avatar Hello,
You definitely could have PCOS and I would advise you to see a doctor about this - OB/GYN, internal medicine, or endocrinologist. Electrolysis is a safe treatment for excessive hair.

Best wishes.
