    TLDR Finasteride effectively reduces hair growth in women with polycystic ovary syndrome or idiopathic hirsutism.
    This document is a summary of multiple studies that evaluated the effectiveness of finasteride in treating hirsutism in women with polycystic ovary syndrome or idiopathic hirsutism. The studies involved a total of 88 women who were treated with finasteride for six months. The results showed that finasteride was effective in reducing hirsutism scores and DHT levels, with minimal side effects. The studies suggest that finasteride may be a viable treatment option for hirsute women with these conditions.
