Which therapy is best for PCOS-related hirsutism?

An Aussie review suggests the pill is 'superior' to metformin for menstrual regulation and hirsutism

However, the oral contraceptive pill (OCP) or metformin alone are less effective than combining the two treatments for improving hirsutism, says lead author Dr Michael Costello of the University of NSW and Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney.

But some studies have suggested that metformin may be safer
