PCOS and hirsutism

I been suffers from hirsutism for about 10 years and last year I decide to good to my GP to know the reason of it I did blood tests and scans and about 2 month ago I was diagnosed with PCOS the doctor gave me Metformin and Eflornithine I been using for 6 weeks.

Does anyone in the same satuation as me had any change with the hirsutism by using those medication? I just want to know if this medication will do something to my hirsutism or should I look for some alternative.

I didn't realise you could ask for a blood test to determine why it happens so thanks for that tip. As for dealing with the unwanted hair, I use an epilator and moisturise my skin to prevent dryness
