Many women develop hair on the chin, on the upper lip and on the abdomen. That looks very unsightly and any woman who has this condition would wish to get rid of it as early as possible. The problem that is known as hirsutism is serious in some women and psychologically affects them. Let us find out more about it.
In some races this is common condition and not taken seriously. While in most of the races overgrowth of hair in a woman at unwanted places is certainly a problem. This problem happens because of androgens. Androgens are male hormones. Women also have androgens. Sometimes a woman produces more of androgens resulting in overgrowth of hair in the male pattern. Sometimes a woman may be very sensitive to even the common accepted levels of androgens and that may cause hirsutism. Some anabolic steroids cause hirsutism and so do some hormone pills. If you are having any such side effect please consult your doctor.
