hair growth with no hormones

Can someone please give advice, i have had TAH and no ovaries left but I seem to be growing hair on my tummy which I didn't have before! I noticed it when getting dressing changed today! Is this normal?

Re: hair growth with no hormones


You should discuss this with your Dr . Sometimes, if our estrogen levels drop too low, our adrenal glands can try to compensate by giving us other hormones (androgens) which can cause unwanted body hair. You can ask to have your serum testosterone levels checked to see if this is the case. If it is, then there is a drug called spironolactone which can control this.

No need to worry, if it is caught soon enough, it is often completely reversible.

THanks for advice. I may do that. If it is only hormonal, I might just wax rather than take medication. Will ask on next visit!
