Did You Know Chin Hairs Could Be A Symptom Of A Disease?

About 20 percent of the female population has polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), yet most women don’t know about it. PCOS is characterized by enlarged ovaries that have small collections of fluid, referred to as follicles, in each ovary. It can occur in women who have gone through puberty and are able to get pregnant.

According to the Mayo Clinic, PCOS can cause infrequent, absent or prolonged periods, excess hair growth, trouble conceiving, acne and obesity.

Some women are standing up to the stigma surrounding PCOS. According to Little Things, Rose Geil got sick of hiding her excess hair in shame and said the hell with it. She decided to just go with it and grow a beard, and show other women that they shouldn’t be ashamed to be themselves.

Here’s some tips for managing PCOS, from Little Things:

1. Change your diet - Eat a diet of foods that maintain insulin levels, like leafy greens, vegetables, fruit, lean meat and fatty fish that is rich in Omega-3. Avoid soy, dairy and processed foods that can interfere with hormone and insulin levels.

2. Take magnesium - Magnesium will help regulate insulin and your hormones.

3. Exercise - Exercise to maintain your weight at a healthy level for 15 to 30 minutes.

4. See an aesthetician - An aesthetician can help you remove excess hair.

5. Talk to a therapist - These symptoms can cause stress and affect one’s mental health you may want to consider talking to a therapist.
