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.

Hey there, I have a question to ask. My gf has PCOS, so sometimes her period comes either a few days late or early. We were fooling around one day (8 and 9 of June). (We have never has intercourse before as we want to wait.) Anyways after fooling around, we then only noticed that it was around her ovulation period. (Because of her PCOS, I m not sure if it was really her ovulation time of the month). There are moments when our genitals touched (probably at the clit area). Now, about 5 days later, she did tell me, that she saw some light brown discharge on her pad (for only a day / 12th June). It was completely fine after that. We took a pregnancy test on the 22nd June and it stated negative. I m curious, can she get pregnant? Her period was due in the 23rd but but has not come yet. Or is it just delayed.
