Causes of Beard and Mustache in Women
Some women have more hair on certain parts of their body. These hairs grow on the upper lips, chin, chest, lower abdomen and become denser over time. It can be said that men have thick hair on their body parts and women also have thick hair on those parts. In medical terms, this condition is known as hirsutism. Due to increase in male hormones or decrease in female hormones in the body, hormonal imbalance occurs and unwanted hairs appear in many places.
Hirsutism is a condition where excess hair grows on certain parts of your body. In hirsutism, unwanted hair on the female body causes the voice to become heavy, breast size to decrease, muscles to grow, sex drive to increase, and acne to appear. 70-80 percent of women with PCOS have hirsutism.
Hirsutism can have many causes. This condition can be caused by polycystic ovary syndrome, over production of androgens, over medication, post menopause, Cushing’s syndrome etc. The condition is most commonly seen in women of Mediterranean, Hispanic, South Asian, or Middle Eastern descent.
