Hi Shilpa,
Thanks for writing to us.
This hair growth or hirsutism is due to PCOD.
You are already taking medical treatment for the same. As you are worried about hirsutism, the best treatment option would be laser hair reduction of your chin hair. Usually 5 to 6 sessions of laser sessions 4 weeks to 6 weeks apart are required. This would give you desired and permanent results.
Hope that helps. Take care
