    Question Emergency contraception and hair growth

    Over the past year, I have overused emergency contraceptives. I'd say I've taken maybe 12 over the year. before you judge, i am not promiscuous...i'm engaged to my boyfriend of 3 years. Anyways, my body does not respond well to birth control pills so I thought at least the side effects of a plan b pill only last about 2 weeks right? wrong. I took 2 emergency contraceptives about 4 months ago and have started growing hair in places that women should NOT grow hair. it's extremely embarrassing for me...i have to shave every day...and it causes me all kinds of anxiety. I went to an endocrinologist and she told me I do not have PCOS because i usually have regular periods (although the last 2 were very irregular). She can't really explain the hair growth...just that my testosterone levels are slightly elevated. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this and did the side effects ever subside???? How long did it take? I KNOW this is because of overuse of the plan b pill. please write back if you have any valuable information.
