Unwanted Hair Growth Chart

Millions of women struggle with unwanted hair. Most unwanted hair is caused by genetics or ethnicity. However, excessive hair can be the sign of a hormone problem or other conditions. Use this chart, based on the Ferriman Gallwey Evaluation of Hirsutism, to determine whether your hair growth is more than medically desired. Find yourself on the scale. Rank yourself for each area; scoring starts at 0 ("no excessive terminal hair growth") and goes up to 4 ("extensive terminal hair growth"). The maximum score is a 36. If you score a 6 or more, you may want to consider visiting a specialist.
