      I’ve heard spirinolactone and metformin can work for some people. I also ended up shaving lol

      My dermatologist put me on Spiro and it’s helped a bit. It’s only been 3 months and I’ve heard it can take 6+ months for it to fully kick in so I’m super happy. It’s extremely dangerous for pregnancy though so you have to be done having children and on super reliable birth control.

      I used to get laser hair removal but it did not work for me long term. Now I just shave occasionally.
