Please help.:oHi wiggles1984,Either condition that Kiera has noted is a possibility but I think the likelihood is greater that you have PCOS. This is diagnosed through a combination of symptoms, labs for hormone levels, and ultrasound.See either your GP or (preferably) your GYN. If you do have PCOS, treatment with medications to regulate hormone levels/menstrual periods and also medications that suppress hair growth can be effective. Your doc will likely also want regular follow-ups to stay on top of development of secondary complications such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes.Bets regards,John
