After PCOS Diagnosis, Will My Insurance Company Cover Laser Hair Removal?

After PCOS Diagnosis, Will My Insurance Company Cover Laser Hair Removal?

I was wondering, does having a PCOS diagnosis improve your chances that health insurance companies will partially or completely cover laser hair removal? That would be great considering how expensive multiple treatments can be.

Facial Hair!! 😭😣

Facial Hair!! 😭😣

Im getting so frustrated ladies, its horrible. Im not shaving every other day because the facial hair is growing back so fast. Laser removal is too expensive. Waxing does not work and Nair does not work. Is there anyone out there who have tried to anything prescribed by their doctor? I’m at the end of my rope here and super self conscious lately.

Which Do You Recommend For Hair Removal? Veet Or Nair?

Which Do You Recommend For Hair Removal? Veet Or Nair?

I would love to try the hair removal method for unwanted hair, but was wondering what you ladies think. I know that there is a charcoal Nair, and it seems to work better (smell better, too) than the original Nair. I don't know much about Veet, though. I would like to know quantity and quality as well as price, as I don't have much funds. thank you!

A myPCOSteam Member said:

Both work about the same veet just gave a smoother more moisturizing finish.
