Tricky one: B"sd first - thank G-d you are not a woman. Hirsuitism in men as in women can be nonhormonal or hormonaly mediated. the most common hormonal issue is a mild form of genetic defect that affects adrenal steroid production - Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia - of which many varieties. This usually fine for men as it raises testosterone. But male pattern balding is worsenned . Glad to discuss.
