Just wanted to share something that really helped my facial hair problem. I have suffered with this problem for around 15 years -I've tried anti-androgen BCP's, laser treatment, etc, all with no lasting results. I stumbled on NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) and took just one 600mg capsule a day and within a couple of days had astounding results - went from plucking dozens every day to one or two every other day. Where the hair grew on my chin, the skin was kind of thickened but after taking NAC, it softened back to normal. I was so excited I was crying. The brand I used was NOW Foods.
If you have unwanted facial hair, I would recommend trying it. NAC is a liver detoxifier and is considered extremely safe, it also has a very short half life in the body too. I don't have PCOS (as I don't have cysts on my ovaries) but have all the other symptoms of PCOS. People with PCOS and insulin related disorders have all done well with this cheap supplement because it normalizes insulin levels (but if insulin levels are normal, it does not lower them).
I intitally had some adverse reactions (about 20% of people will), like nausea and headache but they only lasted a 4-5 days. I plugged on as I saw that my hair problem was dramatically improving.
I had other health benefits too - all within two weeks of taking it:
Nail biting since 5 yrs of age stopped and had full set of beautiful nails.
Dry cracked heels - healed up and I was no longer embarrassed to wear sandals.
Nervousness around people I didn't know very well, dramatically abated.
Hair that had started to fall out after taking Antibiotics
, started to grow back again.
Menstrual cycle had been progressively shortening over last 9 months - same month I took NAC, cycle was back to a normal 28 days - even natural progesterone cream was not able to achieve this.
I was dispairing of this worsening condition before I found the NAC - I'm posting this so that maybe someone else will find relief too. If anyone tries it, please post how you go.
