Biotin + body hair growth

Anyone start to see an excess of body hair growth on biotin? When I used it for three months I started needing to thread my upper lip hair once a week instead of once a month. And the hair felt much thicker!

    I took 10,000 mcg biotin a few years and I regretted it. It did increase the rate of growth of hair on my scalp but it also made my PCOS-induced terminal body hair worse. My body hair started turning terminal much quicker and grew really fast.

    My leg hair does grow a little faster but I never had a lot of body hair anyway so I just deal with it. I'm at an age now where I don't have as much body hair, anyway(late 50's early 60's).
    I have been using hair supplements (GNC advanced hair skin and nails)
    It takes several months but I think they honestly help.
    I'm looking for more curl, body, volume, and shine-a miracle really.
