Isn't it time those with PCOS got hair removal on the NHS?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a lifelong metabolic disorder, that affecst one in 5 women.  Hirsutism is excess facial and sometimes body hair and we are not talking peach fuzz here, we are talking coarse dark hair usually.  Studies have shown that many of those with PCOS experience anxiety and depression as a result of hirsutism.  It can have an impact on their self-esteem, sexual satisfaction, quality of life, mental health, interpersonal relationships.  Some research has shown that treatment for facial hirsutism in particular led to improved quality of life and a reduction in anxiety and depression.  We feel that given this condition causes hirsutism that this should be treated on the NHS to help reduce the impact of the condition on our mental health.  Please show your support by signing and sharing the petition - link below.  Thank you for your support.
