According to Mirror, Annalisa Hackleman was 13-years-old when she developed polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal condition that caused her to grow facial hair similarly to a man.
Soon after developing the condition, Annalisa’s mother took her to get laser hair removal treatments, but they unfortunately didn’t work; and Annalisa’s only option was the razor.
After dealing with years of shaving and depression, Annalisa recently decided to ditch the razor due the unconditional acceptance from her husband.
“Thankfully my husband helped me to get out of my haze and demanded something be done, as it was ruining our life together,” she said.
