If you have a question, please ask it under the appropriate forum. This is for emotional support only. Questions will be moved to other forums.

A reader suggested I move this category higher, and I agree it is important. Please feel free to share how you feel, whether it's anxious, proud, sad, delighted. Others will certainly feel the same way.

Again if you have a question, please ask it under the appropriate forum. Thanks!

Hair is great if it is in the places you think it should grow! As a female I should not have facial hair of a man. To me this is not natural. Overall I try to take my facial hair with a smile on my face, but inside I am embarassed and insecure. I can't even let anyone get to close to me for fear that they might see. I am not saying that I don't love my hair I do, but I don't love having to feel unattractive over such consuming thing as trying to control my facial hair. As seen on the site I am not alone in this situation and that in some strange way makes things easier that I am not as "freakish" as I feel. This site is a wonderful hope for all of us who are trying to find answers.

If you literally have male pattern growth on your face, you should see an endocronologist and get tested for hormonal imbalance disorders.

Exactly "hair" can change from culture to culture, or even within cultures. For example, a woman with chin-length hair may be said to have short hair, while a man with the same length of hair could be said to have long hair.

Find a reputable endicronolist in your area and get tested for potential hormonal imbalance disorders. You can have cysts or something else causing this which can be treated with medication.

I hate how my parents ridicule my insecurity....they don't support me one bit and that just makes the problem worse for me. I'm going to have to get through this by myself =\

Basically, it makes me selfconcious(I have a small amount of upper lip facial hair) and I will stand further away from people to try and make it so it is not seen. I'm most likely beginning electrolysis soon so hopefully it will be all good after that!

Most women have some sort of upper lip hair. It's completely normal. Most either wax, bleach, shave, etc.

Just remember that shaving and clipping are the only things that don't cause potential increased growth and thickness.
