This is a really embarrassing thing for me to talk about, but....

Is anyone else a really hairy female? I have been cursed with hairy arms, facial hair, a hairy butt and even hair around my nipple area. Please tell me I am not the only one out there cursed with this and what do u do about it?

  • I used to use facial hair bleach for the hair around my nipples. That hair eventually grew to be less. I really don't think you should ever shave around there because the hair would probably grow back thicker and stubbly and possibly even could get infected. I do shave my bikini area and trim my excess pubic hair with small grooming scissors once a week. Good luck!

  • I have a hair issue under my chin and upper lip....i have PCOD wich can cause your hormones to be unbalanced...extra hair growth in women is usually a sign of a hormonal to your doc there is labwork they can do! ever since i started taking birth control with added estrogen i noticed the hair growth has slowed down so severely its hardly even noticeable...

  • I started puberty when I was young & by the time i was 14 or so I started noticing I had a happy trail & started shaving it, ive also always been thick around the inner thigh area...
    When I was 16-18ish, I noticed the nipple hair (how long had it been there, IDK!) and I also started getting a few chin hairs (OMG i was in highschool!).
    I had a kid at 24 & during pregnancy my chin hair went NUTS & started getting lip hair too.. I waxed/plucked, Thought it would go away with those pregnancy hormones.. but it only got WORSE.
    Im 26. I have side burns (they are long), mustache (kinda thick & dark-some wont even bleach anymore!), chin patches & strays (some wont bleach anymore either!), Nipple hair all around the nipple. a happy trail (THICK!), Butt hair (no biggie! I can deal with that!)...
    Also I am the type that I can shave & within just a few hours I have stubble..
    It must be true love cause hubby makes me feel sexy! LOL.
