Endocrinology: See an endocrinologist. After a proper evaluation, controlling or blocking excess testosterone can often help hair changes in pcos.

Not related: The hair loss is not associated with pcos - you should see a dermatologist to determine why you have the hair loss and secure any treatment that is available.
