Symptoms of hirsutism

Hirsutism is stiff and pigmented body hair, appearing on the body where women don’t commonly have hair — primarily the face, chest and back.

When excessively high androgen levels cause hirsutism, other signs may develop over time, a process called virilization. Signs of virilization may include:

  • Deepening voice
  • Balding
  • Acne
  • Decrease in breast size
  • Enlargement of the clitoris

Some additional symptoms, such as

  • oily skin
  • irregular periods
  • no periods at all
