Excess body hair - please help

I was diagnosed with PCOS 12 years ago when struggling to get pregnant. I have had lots of problems with periods although hoping they are starting to get sorted after having the mirena coil fitted. The last few years I've had the odd hairs growing on my tummy but recently I have got lots and on my chest as well, it's really getting me down! Is there anything I can do to get rid of this apart from shaving/waxing or will the Dr be able to give anything to help? I've avoided going to the Dr so far because I'm too embarrassed!

You can ask for vaniqa cream but is expensive so GP's dont always mention it. Also ask for laser on the NHS as well, it can be a bit of a fight but ladies have managed to get it.

I got my beard done privately and its the best thing I ever did, expensive but so worth it.
