Doubt it: Teenager may go though issues like this. My advice is to see an OB/GYN instead of a Pediatrician. If she has issues like this, she may benefit with a low dose oral contraceptive to help regulate her cycle and help with the hair issue. She may have polycystic ovarian syndrome and be checked out.
