So I've been going untreated for a while now, since November. The gynes I saw over the summer prescribed Microgynon which is hands down the worst pill ever for PCOS so I refuse to take it because I went suicidal for *no reason* after ten days, and it's been known to make hirsutism happen in normal females which is like the OPPOSITE of what I want. I can take spironolactone but my GP recommended not to until I get my fainting issues sorted.
And it's horrible. My hair has gone out of control on my face. My diet is doing okay and I've lost some weight but it seems to have made it *worse*. My husband hates the hair, and I hate the hair, and my cats hate the hair. On Dianette it almost disappeared and in less than a year it's exploded again. Shaving isn't practical any more.
Is there anything aside from shaving/waxing and threading I can do? I've also tried Vaniqa, which doesn't work for me and I'd need buckets of it anyway, and electrolysis is out of the question since we simply can't afford it.
I should clarify I'm interested in reducing the overall load of hair being produced in general rather than skin surface treatments and looking at possible supplements to curb hair growth.
