What Is This She Speaks Of?

Hello all. Well, its 12.43 in the morning and it's Labour Day. But i'll have to wake up at 7 am and go to school for some stuff. So much for Labour Day. Since I couldn't really sleep, I decided I'll write this post. So today, I'll introduce Hirsutism to you.

What Is Hirsutism?

Hirsutism. The word itself makes me spin into an ecstacy of emotions. Hirsutism which derived from a Latin word, "hirsutus" which means shaggy,hairy is a condition that effects every 1 in 100- 150 women of our kind. In a gradient from high to low, European/Caucasian women are more prone to having hirsutism than Asian women. But that still does not answer the question, WHAT IS HIRSUTISM?

Alright time for an explanation. Both girls and boys have hormones right? And in both sexes, they don't just have hormones of their own sex but also of the other sex. For example, girls have a hormone called Estrogen but the female body also requires them to have male hormones such as androgen and testosterone. Usually, in normal healthy women, the male hormone to female hormone ratio is something like 1 to 10. (Hypothetically speaking). This is totally perfectly normal and healthy.

However, in hirsute women ( women who have hirsutism ) , they face an elevated level of male hormones. In our hypothetic ratio just before this, their androgen level would be between 4 - 10 or 7 -10 which is rather high and not normal.


In my next post, I will discuss what Hirsutism does to a person's health and appearance. This is all for today. Understand it. Appreciate it.

An Introduction To What May Come.

Hey all. I would've started all the detailed stuff today, but what can I say? Fatigue fatigue fatigue!

So here let me just give you a brief introduction on what I am going to do in this blog.

First and for all, I want to educate each and everyone of you about hirsutism. Sure you can be educated by Wikipedia too, but its not going to give you enough insight. This is what I am going to do.

This blog and these posts are going to lay all the COLD HARD FACTS flat on the table. And there is only ONE WAY to take it, and thats the way I ask you to. Because then and only then, will I be able to create a sense of awareness and respect for women like me. Sounds harsh and a little arrogant? Nah. Its just the spirit to achieve something.

And to all you hirsute hotties, I promise the greatest tips on overcoming hirsutism. For I have overcome it and I want you girls to do so too. I'm no Medical Doctor, so you'll definitely not be getting any medical prescriptions from me. You're endocrinologist stills does that. I'll be here to give you emotional support and lifestyles tips and changes of a hirsute girl.

To the rest of you, help me, help me make a difference the world could use. =)

The Start of Playing A Part.

Hello everyone.

So here I am, Reen Khan on my SECOND blog.
But this blog is a little different. It isn't the same as "And Honestly I've Been Begging For Answers".
Yes, hirsutism. Some of you may know and some of you may not know.
Whatever it is, I'm a living example of a person who is fighting this painful condition and am overcoming it every single day of my life.
In this blog, I pray and hope to educate and create a vast sense of awareness among ALL MY READERS about this condition.
I'm going to teach you to LEARN. UNDERSTAND. RESPECT. LOVE. women who have Hirsutism for they DESERVE IT.
I will share the experiences I've had and am having throughout this complicated fight, and I promise all you hirsute girls, that at the end of every single post, you'll feel a whole lot better.
Because I learned to heal and I'll teach you how to heal.
Internet pages and medical references can't tell the experiences of a hirsute better than a hirsute can.
So this blog is deidcated,

- In the name of God most gracious, most merciful, may all my intentions that have been placed upon this path be accepted with open arms for the betterness of man -
