Hair growth under the neck. Any relation for fertility ?

I am 23 years old unmarried girl. I have hair growth under neck . It is not much visible but few hairs are coarse and thick. My mother also few hairs under neck. I am having normal monthly periods within interval of 30 days. I just wanted to ask is it bad i mean does it affect the fertility? Does it means I cant get pregnant in future?

Hi juz,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The problem of excess hair in female is called hirsutism.
Most likely cause in your case is Polycystic Ovarian syndrome, when you have excess androgens from ovaries. The hirsutism can be hereditary also.
You need to get the female hormone's levels done and get evaluated by your physician.
It can affect your married life, can lead to overweight and may affect fertility.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
