Keywords:Ferriman-Gallwey, Hirsutism, Menstruation, Transvaginal Sonography
Background: Hirsutism is an annoying change that brings many women to gynecology and dermatology clinics; it can also indicate important events such as serious hormonal problems or malignancies. As a result of genetic changes, a percentage of these people show this finding in a benign and uncomplicated way, but some of them are also associated with ovarian problems such as excessive testosterone secretion. this was the main theory of the current study, where women with normal periods and oligomenoric hirsutism were examined in terms of the relationship between hirsutism and total testosterone laboratory parameters and ultrasound findings. Materials and methods: 93 women with hirsutism, their average age was 32.6 years and none of them were more than 45 years old or less than 15 years old, were included in this study. 60% of them had regular menstruation and 40% had irregular menstruation. None of the subjects had received drug therapy and had no reports of conditions of hypothyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, or breastfeeding. Results: The data was analyzed by using SPSS-22 software and the results showed that the average testosterone level difference between both groups was significant. (0.8575 vs. 1.5276) (P=0.000). Ultrasound findings in the group with hirsutism and irregular menstruation were significant in terms of the number of follicles between 2 and 5 mm (P=0.03). Conclusions: According to the results, it can be said that the Freeman-Galloway scoring system can be used as a predictor in some women with hirsutism.
