Brief Answer:
Regarding coarse facial hair and PCOS

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

For diagnosing PCOS, specific treatment options mainly include oral hormonal pills, antiandrogens (like Spironolactone and Cyperoterone Acetate), Metformin etc. Besides this, for coarse facial hair, laser hair reduction (LHR) works best with or without topical Eflornithine cream application.

Hope I have answered your query.
