Hello and welcome to HCM
Polycystic ovarian disease
is a disorder in which there is hormonal
There are two hormones secreted by the pituitary gland
These two hormones are Lutenizing hormone (LH) and Follicular stimulating Hormone (FSH).
In PCOD the ratio of LH to FSH increases.
Increase in LH secretion leads to increased production of testosterone
(male hormone) in females and hence effects of male hormone.
This is the reason for the growth of coarese hair on your chin.
The treatment for PCOD will reduce the growth of these hair.
You should consult your gynaecologist for this problem.
The drug used most often for this problem is metformin
PCOd could be the cause of menstrual disturbances.
Susten consists of progetserone hormone and it helps to regularize menstrual cycles in some cases.
Thanks and take care
