Is there any natural or home remedy to stunt hair growth on the face ?

Hello. I am a 20 year old female with now medical issues that I am aware of, but I have a very bad facial hair problem. When I was much younger I shaved for stupid reason once, but it didn t really grow back much thicker and never gave me a problem until about 3-4 years ago it became thick and course. I tried laser hair removal , but it simply thinned the growth for a short time and then went back to normal. Went to an obgyn and they said I may possibly have polycystic ovarian disorder and put me on an low birth control which thinned the hair slightly but at this point in time I can not afford nor have the time to go back to the doctor . Is there anything I can do at home? Possibly apply topically to stunt the growth some. It has progressed worse than ever and is quite embarrassing. I just need to get by a few more months before I go back to the doctor. Please help.

You must continue your treatment for PCOS. Get your hormone levels tested and get a pelvic ultrasound done. Be in contact with your gynaecologist. There is no home based treatment for this. But you may try using eflora cream once daily. But remember that getting your PCOS treated is of the first priority.
