Approximately 20 million American women need to remove facial hair at least once a week, according to a 1999 study done by Bristol Myers. It is not a disease but women with beards and hairs are often regarded as men, gross, impotent or witches.

The growth of excess beards and hairs on women is usually called Hirsutism. Hirsutism occurs on parts of a woman where hairs and not expected to grow or its growth is expected to be minimal. These hairs could appear in places that it normally occur on men, including the chest, back and face. Women develop excessive body or facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of male hormones. Male hormones are called androgens, and they include testosterone. All females produce


androgens, but the levels normally remain low. Certain medical conditions can cause a woman to produce too many androgens, causing male-pattern hair growth

4. Cushing disease: Those with Cushing disease have higher-than-normal levels of cortisol. Cortisol is sometimes called the “stress hormone.”
