Possible: Excessive hair growth in women is called hirsutism, there are several reasons for it, hormonal imbalance being one of them. Acne, hair growth and also irregular cycles are a part of condition called polycystic ovaries. Dibeties or Insulin resistance may also be associated conditions. The treatment depends on your plans for pregancy. Hope this helps.
