I am a 22 year old hispanic female (with light olive skin color) that has a lot of black/thick hair growth pattern everywhere on my body (even on my face and chest). I was like this since I was very young (7 years old) and it became worse with time.
Recently, I saw an endocrinologist and he did some blood work and saw that my hormones are abnomormal (I am not sure which ones). However, I have regular monthly periods, I don't have acne or hair loss, and I am not overweight.
He said that I have CAH (congenital adrenal hyperplasia). He prescribed me 50 mg of spironolactone and diane-35 per day. He said that the birth control is for keeping my periods regular since spironolactone messes up some female's periods. Also, he will see me in 6 months from now in order to test my potassium levels and see if the medication is reducing my body hair.
Does this sound like a good combination of drugs to reduce my body hair?
