I have bleached, plucked and waxed my hair from pretty much everywhere (stomach, arms, mostasche, chin & back). I am now 23 and married and have never discussed this with my husband although I thought it was really obvious. The only time he did notice it when I was pregnant and it got much worse, but i didnt care at that point! Even so, it didnt bother him at all,and no boyfriends before ever noticed. They really arn't that observant, but it does affect confidence, I understand that. Just whatever you do about it, do it for you cos men dont care I promise.x

Actually we have hair all over our bodies, if you look closely enough. Light haired people, they get lighter hair on arms but I noticed black hair people have darker arm hair and I even seen stubble on their upper lip. Nothing wrong with that, but it's normal.

scythe agony auntYep, I do. It's natural and normal. Most people have fine, barely noticable hair all over their body (depends on your ethnicity). I have slightly larger hairs around my nipples.. i tent to pluck the obvious ones out, but the rest can stay. Its normal honey, don't fuss about the small stuff ;)

A female reader, anonymous, writes (12 October 2008):

One of the reasons for this could be sensitivity of the hair folicles to hormones, which could be natural, or it could be one of the sympthoms of polycystic ovary syndrome, which can be checked by a doctor.It is not a serious condition in which the menstrual cycle is affected and male pattern body hair occurs,however this condition means that there is an increased risk for diabetes and insulin resistance,infertility and depression so it is better to have it checked.In cases if hirsutism due to PCOS(male pattern hair growth, in areas such as abdomen, breast, face etc) a doctor can prescribe hormonal reatment such as Dianette 35 which is a strong version of the pill, which will decrease the hair appearance. However, in your case as you are young the reason might be natural hormonal imbalance due to puberty etc.Unless a doctor diagnoses you with a serious problem such as very sever acne, or no periods for 3 months I would not agree to taking this pill (dianette 35): it is a very strong pill which will have side effects such as depression and weight gain and it is not good for your liver (you will need to get the liver checked after 2 years of taking it, (I am not sure about this though I read it somewhere and the doctors will usually let you take it without much warning)). Generally If you have hair somewhere else on your body (belly, face, etc) and if you have problems such as irregular periods, acne, I would advise you to seek a doctor, in case it is a sympthom of polycystic ovary syndrome.If you have hair only on your breasts then I would just bear with it and wax it or pluck it. There is a photo of Yoko Ono in which she has some breast hair, so don't worry...women come in all differnt shapes and styles :)

Yeah. I get some around my nipples. If you're almost furry, see a doctor, but if it's only like ten or fifteen hairs, just pluck them off.

I have some hair on my breasts. I also have hair on my stomach. I have had it since I was a teenager. Some of my friends wax their body hair, but unless it's really bad I wouldn't worry to much about it. If you have a tan it should help make it harder to see.

Blue_Angel0316 agony auntSometimes women get facial hair and even hair on the breast. Don't worry. It's hormones! If they are soft and light they may not be a noticeable to others as they are to you. If they are dark and more noticeable then simply get a pair of tweezers and gently pluck them away by pulling the hair in the direction in which it grows.

If they are more than a few you might consider using a mild depilatory(something like Nair of Neet) If the problem persits and it really is a nuisance then consult with a doctor to see if they have any options,which could involve electrolysis or some other method available.

God bless,
