You should not feel awkward asking this question, it is very reasonable. It certainy sounds like your problems are due to a condition known as Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome. This is quite common, but it really needs to be checked out. Since you are still quite young (under 18) perhaps you ought to have your parents take you to a gynecologist and an endocrinologist. Once you have an accurate diagnosis, then you can look into some alternative means of safely helping out your condition. There is a forum on women with facial hair around Curezone. You may wish to look there and see how others are dealing with it. At any rate, do not worry. You may have to do a little extra work to keep healthy and beautiful, but there are many thnigs available for us in the health and beauty fields these days. You will find a good solution. Many blessings to you.
i got my period in the summer of 4th grade (i was obese then, but now avg weight), before i hit 5th grade. i vaguely remember seeing my first strand of pubic hair the summer i was supposed to go into 2nd grade. i remember being very freaked out but my mother told me that it wasn't anything. i have notably dark hair in areas usually associated with male hair growth. i've had tests done by conventional doctors but things came out fine, although i'm on the high side for testosterone. i have way enlarged pores for my age group as well, but the doctors won't do shit because i'm not 18 yet. my periods are late all the time and i have horrible pms. not to mention dark hair all over and my skin seems to be aging quite fast. does anybody know what this is called? or how it can be helped? i recall very dark hair as young as 11. my mother's side of the family is a bit hairier, but only the male cousins seem to match my level of hairiness/facial hair thickness. my father is virtually hairless.

Doctors should not be ignoring you because you are under 18!! Search for a doctor who will listen. In the mean time there are many things you can do to help your hormones balance naturally. It sounds very much like you have PCOS to me, but I am not an expert. A friend of mine had a bad case of this and healed herself with diet and yoga alone.
Yoga, t-tapp exercises, liver flushing, bowel cleansing and avoiding all processed foods, grains and non-organic meats will help to balance your hormones and insulin levels.
Here's a link with some herbs and supplements that will help, but there are many more sites out there with good info too.
Also, I would recommend posting in the Iodine forum, they may be able to help you too.

thanks. i've been to several gynecologists and 2 endocrinologists. they all said i'm not past the line of having too much testosterone or that i'm fine/ wait til 18. i want to try to go get a bio meridian assessment test to see if they can locate the cause since it seems like i developed the hormone problem even when at 10-11. or is it something you're born with? what is there to fix / revert back to normal if the hormones were bad since i was really young or possibly since i was born? i have a horrible case of ibs and that's my primary concern right now although its extremely frustrating to have both at such a young age. traumatizing for hs life especially since i live in the big apple. so much to do. my severe case of ibs constipation developed after antibiotics (age 14), however, i had ibs like diarrhea symptoms before the antibiotics (ages 5-14). i'm struggling to make it through school and it's a lot on my plate since my parents are immigrants and i have to do the research and communicate with the doctors myself.

Just a couple of comments. They told me the same thing about my hormones. It seems that doctors are not particularly crazy about treating high testosterone levels in young women. One told me it would just make me have a good sex life.
Important for balancing hormones is to avoid heated fats. Try cooking the food and adding a good oil afterward (olive, coconut, etc). Your diet must take a high priority and you should avoid fast food, and in fact all processed food, like the plague. No margarine and do not re-use fat that has been heated!
IBS is helped by L-glutamine (very cheap) and both diarrhea and constipation are helped by probiotics. I always suggest acidophilus after a round of antibiotics, even if the antibiotics were far in the past. I buy mine at Walmart; it is cheap, effective and does not need refrigeration. Take it to bowel tolerance, then back off. What I suggest is 5-6 capsules per day until the stool loses its smell or until you get diarrhea, then just enough daily to keep the odor out of the stool. Until you get it under control, avoid grains and raw foods, and anything else that gives you gas. If it gives you gas, it is not digesting. I suggest a diet of protein and vegetables only. Introduce raw foods very slowly.
As for what causes this, some people think it is the hormones added to meat and chicken. They found that some young girls in Puerto Rico began developing breasts and 6-8 years old after hormones were added to the chicken.
Hair growth on face/body of females is called hirsutism. You can google it, and there has been a medicine released recently.
You can do a lot with a clean diet and good elimination! I would suggest you not use artificial means to try to balance your hormones yourself as this is a delicate balance. You can try to balance the high testosterone with eating foods high in estrogen like black beans and soy (google for more).
