One of the faces of PCOS is Harnaam Kaur. She handles her conditions symptoms with confidence and ease. She is the youngest female with a full beard. Yes, a fun beard. It began coming in just after she hit puberty. I once read that she tried to shave and wax it in the past. Yet, I get why she did't continue. The facial skin is sensitive, she'd still have stubble, and even bumps. Still remnants after the beard was gone. Kaur began embracing her facial hair. For her mental health, and religious beliefs.
Kaur's beard is an extension of her PCOS. Of course she was ridiculed from ignorant people. Who weren't aware of the limits a woman body can push her. Or that women with certain gynecological conditions can grow facial hair. Yet, she overcame it. She even walked the runway. As the fashion industry also embraced her beauty.
