You may be suffering from Non-classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia which can als cause the above symptoms and signs. You may get your ACTH levels analysed along with DHEA levels. You must increase fibre in your diet by eating fresh fruits and vegetable everyday and also cut down on carb rich food like chips, colas, hamburgers etc. Stick to natural wholesome food like oats, wheat bread, pulses and cereals. Exercise for 40 minutes everyday with moderate exercise like a brisk walk. Regarding hirsuitism, a Dermatologist will help you best.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You have all the features of polycystic ovary disease ,like facial hair , acne ,weight gain,you need to consult a endocrinologist or a gynecologist for proper medicines (diane35 ot gennete) .As far as facial hair is concerned the best is laser hair reduction.

The best of the treatment is lasers which is a permanent treatment (strictly speaking long term) .Laser hair reduction requires multiple sessions at an interval of say 4-6wks.Normally one would require 6-8 sessions ,but if one has hormonal problem then you may need more touch ups.It is safe an effective. Result also depends upon which laser machine you are going for.There are three basic types of lasers used --
1) IPL(intense pulse light)
2) Nd:yag laser
3) Diode laser.

The best of the lot is diode laser which is costly but very effective .The worst would be a IPL (which is actually not even a laser),its just a light device.Apart from its low effectiveness it has other disadvantages also like it can lead to burn marks.The probe of laser is big in size ,so its difficult to manipulate in smaller areas,and thus leads to big rectangular burn marks.Many doctors keep this machine as the cost of machine is less as compared to diode laser.Diode laser not only destroys the root of hair which is black but also the stem cells responsible for new growth of hair. Nd:yag laser comes next ,inferior to Diode laser.But if you don't get a diode in your place then you can go for Nd;yag.One thing you should remember before taking the laser ,that its not just the machine but the man behind the machine also which is important.I've been doing lasers myself for last 12 years now ,so I know in and out about lasers .I f you are further interested then you can visit my website for details .
Kindly find out whether you are taking the right laser or not.

As for wight ,there are good medicines which works both on facial hair and weight like metformin.It has very good result on weight too,so talk to your endocrinologist for the same. Exercise and proper diet maintainaince would help further.
