Is this normal?

I have been taking vitamins lately and I have noticed that I cant keep up with the shaving of all my hair. I look like a sasquatch. Normally I could shave my whole body(chest, back arms legs) about once a week, now the hair on my boobs grows within minutes! What should I do?

  • Speak to your doctor about having a hormone test done to make sure your not producing to my progesterone. Are you pregnant? Do you have PCOS? PCOS usually has excess body hair as a side effect and they do have creams you can use like vaniqua to try and stop the hair. Its costly or you can always try waxing, bleaching or plucking.

  • If you were shaving all those areas before you obviously already are a sasquatch. But, I'm sure you knew that already which is the point of the question.................troll

  • OMG, my sister is like this! We (my other sister, my mom, and I) all have to shave her every other day. She had to wear long sleeves for all her dances at school, it didnt start to be like this until she was 16.... then one day she just woke up and was really "fuzzy" and its not just blonde peach fuzz either, Im talking... dark cat fur style hair! Her dr. said it was normal for some people, its a rare form of something... i dont remember what...but normal none the less! And her skin is too sensitive for lotions that remove the hair...but you could try it.

  • I say you should see a doctor since that isnt normal. When I was pregnant H grew a few stry hairs on my chest but now they aregone I dont know I agree that it could be hormones.
