Extremely Hairy: Please Help?
An_197495 posted:
Okay, so I'm 14 years old and being in Florida, summer is just around the corner. Problem is, I'm embarrassed to wear a swimsuit in public. Because I'm overweight? No. Because I'm hairy. Ever since I was born, my mom has had to wax my eyebrows/univrow, & and I now tweeze it everyday (along w/ my mustache and chin). I can deal with that, but what should I do about the body hair? My stomach hairs are about an inch long, curly, and BLACK like a man. As much as I tan, the hairs are still noticeable. Same with the hair on my butt. I've just started shaving my lower arms, and I shave my legs everyday. Especially playing volleyball (my favorite sport) and swimming (my other favorite sport) it's hard to hide all of this hair. I even have dark hair on my toes, feet, and knuckles! My chest and back hair are bad too... I really don't know what to do, but being in high school, I'm embarrassed to even change in the locker room. What should I do? Is this normal? Pleaseeee help I don't want to wax, my hair grows SO FAST. And shaving leave stubble & ingrown hairs, bleaching never works, and Ive tried laser hair removal (it's only worse). My mom said she was like this when she was younger, but she lived in NY so it wasn't as big of a deal. Any tips/ advice is appelreciated...

You may want to be checked for PCOS, Polycystic ovary syndrome, and have your adrenal hormones checked. Some women who have lots of hair have issues with too much male hormones. The PCOS will cause problems with your periods and fertility.
