Misery loves company? Not really.. But I do understand what you are going through. I had high hopes of finding someone here who had triumphed over this problem. I believe someone must have found the answer..However, they are not on this site talking about it, but somewhere happily making up for lost time I have tried all but sugaring and I will be trying that while I wait for appointment with Endocrinologist. My problem started with what was termed 'endocrine shock.' After a brutal rape I became pregnant. Two weeks after a positive pregnancy test my pubic hair turned white and I had dark whiskers on my chin and a mustache. I was 24 yrs old. Post Traumatic events continued .. and the hair problem flourished over the years while raising my twins and two older children as a now single mother. Predictably, my marriage did not survive. With Peri Menopause the problem has escalated completely ruining my skin with ingrown hair, bumps and dark spots. Makeup has not been able to cover up this mess for yrs. I am hoping that an Endocrinologist can balance my hormones and halt the growth of facial hair before I resemble the Bearded Lady in the Circus.. Maybe then lasers, electrolysis etc.. can help repair damage to my skin..At this point I no longer identify with the face I see in the mirror.
