Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query.
Hair fall and unwanted hair both together indicate that there is hormonal imbalance.
This type of imbalance happens in cyst of ovary. I would suggest you to get an ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis done. This will confirm the diagnosis. Based on this report treatment can be started. For now you can start using minoxidil lotion. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

ok, thats good to know that there are no cysts at present.
Please get the following additional tests done,
1. Free as well as bound testosterone.
2. SHBG levels
3. DHEAS levels

The above are hormones and their levels can lead to a diagnosis on the basis of which treatment can be done.

Regarding treatment, you can start with minoxidil 2 % application and androanagen tablet daily one.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
