Brief Answer:
About less facial hair treatment;

Detailed Answer:
Some men just can’t grow beards, no matter how hard they try. They have what one might call “perpetual baby-face syndrome.” This isn’t a real medical condition, but many men suffer from it nonetheless.

In general, most males have around the same level of testosterone. Men who grow thick beards are more sensitive, or responsive, to testosterone than their baby-faced peers.
In other words, the capacity to grow a beard has nothing to do with manliness, virility or testosterone levels, and everything to do with genetics.
The treatment you are taking is effective mainly in hair loss rather than in growing the beard. They consist in increasing the blood supply of the hair follicle and have an antiandrogenic effect. In most of the cases are ineffective.

You may discuss with your treating physician regarding to testosterone treatment ( even though your testosterone level is normal), sometimes increasing the testosterone level can result in increasing the sensitivity of the hair follicle to testosterone.
Of course, your treating physician will inform you about the risks and profits and decide rather to start treatment or not.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

Hi I had my first gyn appointment yesterday, I didn t see a Dr I seen a pcos nurse who asked me loads of questions and has booked me in for a ultrasound scan in two weeks.. I was referred to the hospital after my first blood test showed I had high testosterone levels. ( I have regular periods - 25 day cycle).. But she went on to say if the scan came back clear then they would look at my kidneys and brain..as this could also be the reason of high testosterone levels.. I was already very nervous but could not wait to leave and as a result as left me more nervous as I have no idea of what is wrong .. I do retain a lot of water in my legs but always have done.. But my initial reason for my gp visit was my right leg was more swollen than usual- from the tip of my toes all the way to my hip but only in one leg (normal swelling for me only occurs in shins never ankles).. On a positive note I don t feel unwell :) .. Just a little stressed..
