Jess, Im 52 yrs. old and have had PCOS since a teenager. I have the same symptoms that you have. I have bought everything , thru the yrs. , that been put on the market for hair removal. NOTHING worked. I wasted a lot of money by trying everything that said "hair removal" on it. Please don't waste you money on anything that promises hair removal. Over a period of probably 15 yrs. or longer I went to a dermatologist for laser. I couldn't afford to go but maybe 3 or 4 times a yr. because it is very expensive. Back in March I purchased a home laser to do it myself. Wished Id known about these devices earlier. They do work and they save you LOTS of money. They can range from 3 to 500 dollars but still a lot cheaper than going and having it professionally done. I truly empathize with what your going thru. The hair growth alone burried my self esteem six foot under. Bless you , Dear.View Thread
