Re: PCOS, Hereditary, Facial Hair

It's unlikely that she would have PCOS and then PCOS disappear.

Let's take the facts as you spell them out:

Your wife

* did competitive skating when she was young
* had irregular periods when she was younger

that tends to suggest that her natural hormonal balance would have been low in estrogen and high in testosterone when she was younger.

* she went on the Birth Control Pill and her periods became regular. That's what one might expect with the artificial increase in estrogen

* she has female relatives who have obvious facial hair of which you're aware

* she has coarse facial hair, though not as thick as yours.

There are a number of points you don't give information on, such as

* How old is your wife now?

* Has she had children?

* When did her beard growth start?

* If she shaves it, how often does she shave? Daily? Twice a week? Once a week? Once a month?

It's worth remembering that when it comes to facial hair, there's a very considerable overlap between men and women and many women have beard growth as heavy as most males.
