If you haven't already, see your GYN. Sounds like a hormone imbalance. Your dosage may need to adjusted

RE: hair ?

I asked my doctor about unwanted hair, he said it was a gift from your grandmother, not a hormone problem. Ahhh, Grandma, I don't want your gift, she didn't hear me. I got it anyway. :o(

RE: hair ?

I have a friend who had a complete hysterectomy in her early 20's...she occasionally has to have her hormones adjusted. Too many male (androgens?) hormones can cause excess hair growth, I think. She also had slight male pattern baldness...nothing a perm didn't hide, but hormone related.
Agree w/ both above...some people are just naturally hairier...and adjusting hormones should help a lot.
