After PCOS Diagnosis, Will My Insurance Company Cover Laser Hair Removal?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Since being diagnosed with PCOS, I have experienced excessive facial hair under and around my chin/neck area. I have to shave every day and sometimes 2x in a day. Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on this??

A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hi Ladies. So I got diagnosed today. My doctor wasn't very helpful. I don't know what type of PCOS I have and wasn't aware that there were other types of PCOS. I do a lot of research into things and had questions to ask. But when I got in there today and he told me the news I froze. I still don't really understand this Insulin thing. I have excessive hair growth on my face. Does anyone have any tips for that? That is my main concern at the moment.

A myPCOSteam Member

Yeah that’s true I heard that helps
