Just need to have a little rant as I'm struggling a little bit at the moment! Feeling really down about a few things and the doctors aren't really helping me! The past few weeks my hair growth (hirsutism) has got much much worse and I feel so manly and ugly and not feminine at all. I shave my legs, armpits etc and the hair is back the very next day I have stubble all over! The bits affecting me most at the minute is my stomach and face! My stomach is like a mans even when I shave or pluck you can see where the hair is growing and I feel so self conscious! As we are trying to conceive the doctor just keeps saying there is nothing she can do to help me and to try change my diet and lifestyle (I am not Overweight at all in fact I have lost weight nearly half a stone without meaning to past few weeks)
My partner is so supportive and says he doesn't notice it but there is no way you can't notice it it's hideous. We are wanting to book a holiday abroad but I know I will feel very self conscious in a bikini and it worries me. We have also been trying for a baby for nearly a year now with no joy and it's all I can think about and I have dreams of having a baby and it makes me so sad some days. I have a beautiful 4 year old already so I feel so guilty that I feel this way at times as other days I feel so grateful and lucky that I have the one. I had her young without trying for a baby before all my symptoms appeared.
Just wanted to get it all out and wonder if anyone can offer any advice on the hair and the next steps for baby trying as it's been a year.
