Hi, I’m Alisha, a master’s student at Birmingham City University. I am currently conducting a study for my dissertation project investigating the effects of hirsutism (abnormal hair growth) in women with PCOS and the effect this has on their self-esteem in relationships. The study requires females over the age of 18 and suffering from PCOS with hirsutism symptoms. The questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete with a total of 22 questions and may contain questions assessing the quality of your intimate relationship. There will be no personal details collected and all responses will be anonymous.
In order to participate, you will be asked to fill an online questionnaire via a link posted on the verity website.
The link will take you through the participant information sheet detailing the study, consent form and you will be then shown the questionnaire. Once you have completed the questionnaire online you will be presented with the debrief form consisting of researchers contact information as well as helplines.
Your answers will help in finding out more about PCOS, its challenges with hair growth and helping create the right support and advice.
