A woman has dropped the razor and hugged her ginger beard after years of battling a hair growth disorder.

Morgan Coleman first noticed that she was getting hair on her cheeks, chin and neck when she was 11 years old.

Now the 26-year-old had decided to stop removing her hair and embrace her condition known as hirsutism.

Morgan said: “I’ve battled hirsutism every day for 15 years and after spending a lot of time in the hospital lately I’ve decided it’s time PlymouthLive reports.

“It’s time to embrace my natural face and surprisingly, people aren’t as judgmental as you think!”

She added: “I struggle with confidence – after many years of being bullied it has an impact on your confidence but I definitely feel a lot more confident since I decided to embrace my natural face.

“I’m really fine with it now. It’s hard to explain but I feel free – I wake up and that’s the last thing on my mind, it’s wonderful!”

Morgan, who now lives in Australia, says she faced cruel taunts from classmates and used whatever tools she could get her hands on to remove the unwanted facial hair.

Morgan said: “It was terrifying and isolating. Both children and young adults were very cruel. I was severely bullied for many years. I don’t have many fond memories of my school days.

“I used to get a lot of horrible comments from bad people saying I’m ugly, I’m a freak, I’m a man, I’m transgender.

“I used to get a lot of comments about my sideburns – there was a phase where every other person who passed me commented on them, told me to shave my face, laughed at me and made fun of me.

Morgan underwent electrolysis to remove her hair in 2011, but it didn’t work.

She also claims doctors previously dismissed her concerns until she developed menstrual problems and went to her GP for help in 2019.

In 2020, Morgan had an ultrasound for cysts on her ovaries and was later sent to an endocrinologist for tests. After years of hiding her facial hair, Morgan was finally diagnosed with hirsutism and polycystic ovary syndrome in January 2021.

Hirsutism is a condition in which women have thick, dark hair on their face, neck, chest, abdomen, lower back, buttocks, or thighs.

PCOS is a condition that affects the functioning of the ovaries. Many sufferers suffer from irregular periods and facial hair, and often have trouble conceiving.

In April 2022, Morgan decided to embrace her facial hair after being stuck in a hospital for six days after contracting Covid-19 while on holiday, and said it gave her time to think.

Morgan said: “I decided it was time to prioritize my physical and mental health and part of that for me was accepting the things I can’t change. We are all unique. There’s nothing wrong with looking different.”

Since she ditched razors two months ago, Morgan has no regrets and is loving her new confidence that her facial hair is no longer hidden.

She says she’s experienced “disgusted looks” from strangers but feels freer since embracing her natural face and has no plans to return to get the hair removed.

Morgan said: “I enjoy spreading awareness wherever possible – I believe that creating acceptance and normalizing facial hair in women is best done by spreading awareness, answering questions and the Exchange of information can be achieved. PCOS is such a common syndrome.

“I’m really fine with it now. It’s hard to explain but I feel free – I wake up and that’s the last thing on my mind, it’s wonderful!”
