My girlfriend (age 25 - never pregnant) has several long straight black hairs that grow on her areola's around her nipples. She has naturally light hair. I have never seen these kinds of hairs on a woman before, and I was curious to find out how common it is, and if these hairs are an indication of anything else. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
I HAVE THESE AND DON'T LIKE THEM. I BELEIVE PLUCKING THEM IS ONLY A QUICK FIX AND CAUSES THEM TO GROW IN MORE THICKER. I AM SEEKING PERMANENT REMOVAL (WHICH HAS NO GURANTEE FOR NEW GROWTH). IT HAS BEEN EMBARASSING FOR ME EVEN TO HAVE MY HUSBAND SEE THIS, I FELT IT MADE ME LESS ATTRACTIVE AND IN MY EYES GROSS. MY HUSBAND REASSURED ME IT WAS QUITE THE OPPOSITE. SO IF IT IS YOU THAT IS BOTHERED, YOU SHOULD WORK THROUGH THIS SO YOUR GIRLFRIEND DOESN'T BEGIN TO FEEL BAD ABOUT HER BODY. IF IT IS HER HELP HER SEE SHE IS THE SAME LOVE OF YOUR LIFE AND SEEK PERMANENT REMOVAL IF SHE WANTS TO. GOOD LUCK.
Good Lord! Are you afraid she can take you 2 out of 3? Hair covering is part of the definition of a mammal. Ethnic background could be one reason. But any relations built on asthetics is one that will not pass the committment "for better or worse, for richer or for poorer, in sicknes and in health, etc.
A man who loves you won't really care, so trust your husband's comment and don't let OTHER people out there convince you what is supposed to be beautiful. Besides, who else is going to see those hairs? Hair is naturally part of you. We shave and pluck to get rid of it. Why do we insist on this process? As Jet said, we are mammals. Besides, hair doesn't make you who you are inside, which is hopefully what someone will love you for.
I face this same problem and yet here I am getting electrolysis, and it has not been working from all I can see. I'm male with fine back hairs and don't know WHAT TO DO!! I know most people view them disgusting and that is what pushes me to keep getting the electrolysis. But now my body is so red and somewhat hyper-pigmented I cannot even go with my shirt off anyways. I would have been better off shaving I think.
Does anyone know of hormonal treatments that work? FOR MEN? Women have all these drugs to help, but men have nothing.
