reported in this guideline has been determined using the criteria described by the Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination. Recommendations Hirsutism can be slowly but dramatically improved with a 3-pronged approach to treatment: mechanical hair removal, suppression of androgen production, and androgen receptor blockade. Lifestyle changes, including weight loss and exercise, will lower serum androgen levels and improve self-esteem in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome. The patient (...) . Evaluation A thorough history and physical examination plus selected laboratory evaluations will confirm the diagnosis and direct treatment. Treatment Pharmacologic interventions can suppress ovarian or adrenal androgen production and block androgen receptors in the hair follicle. Hair removal methods and lifestyle modifications may improve or hasten the therapeutic response. Outcomes At least 6 to 9 months of therapy are required to produce improvement in hirsutism.

suggest against testing for elevated androgen levels in eumenorrheic women with unwanted local hair growth ( i.e. , in the absence of an abnormal hirsutism score). For most women with patient-important hirsutism despite cosmetic measures (shaving, plucking, waxing), we suggest starting with pharmacological therapy and adding direct hair removal methods (electrolysis, photoepilation) for those who desire additional cosmetic benefit. For women with mild hirsutism and no evidence of an endocrine disorder (...) 1.0 Diagnosis of hirsutism 1.1.
