Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Male type of hair distribution in females happens commonly due to the hormonal disbalance or is seen in polycystic ovaries. If everything is normal then it might just be hereditary in nature.If the hormonal problem is there then it can be treated but if it is due to hereditary cause then tablets cant help you.
