Complications of hirsutism

Hirsutism can sometimes be emotionally distressing. Some women feel self-conscious about having unwanted body hair. Hirsutism can produce mental trauma and emotional anguish. Even mild cases of hirsutism may be viewed by the patient and others as a presumptive loss of femininity.

In more severe cases, hirsutism can be a serious cosmetic problem. Also, although hirsutism doesn’t cause physical complications, the underlying cause of a hormonal imbalance can.

If you have hirsutism and irregular periods, you may have a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome, which can inhibit fertility. Women who are taking certain medications to treat hirsutism should avoid pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects.
