Endocrinologist 's  Response
Hi Riya,
Good day.
Excess hair growth in females ( HIRSITISM) is a common problem.
Eventhough, hypothyroidism can cause hair growth in females, I suspect that you have poly cystic ovary disease. Apart from these there are a number of conditions associated with excess hair growth in females. There are a number of questions to be asked. What is your weight and Height ? Do you have a nipple discharge? Do you have a change in voice? DO you thin that your body is muscular now a days? Do you think that your libido has increased or clitoris has enlarged in size? Do you think that you have hair loss from sides of your scalp? Do you have headaches or pink stretch marks in abdomen or thighs ? Do you develop pimples on face and chest etc?
You need to meet an endocrinologist who can examine you and suggest a number of hormone tests and an ultrasound of ovaries. Again the timing of these tests are important and an endocrinologist can do that. Please visit my blog where I have discussed about this problem. The treatment of this can be suggested only after investigations and proper diagnosis.
Kind Regards
