Endocrine evaluation: How long has the hirsutism been present? Are periods absent or irregular? Any comorbid conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure? Depending on the situation, I would consider conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome, non-classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Cushing's syndrome. Adrenal or ovarian malignancy is a remote possibility.
