Do many girls have hair around their nipples and if so, how do they remove
it? – Kamira*
It's possible — and normal — to have hair almost anywhere on the body,
so a few hairs on your nipples are nothing to worry about. Lots of girls have them.
You have several options for removing nipple hair. You could try tweezing, waxing,
sugaring (a type of waxing), or even electrolysis or laser treatment (although these
last two can be expensive). Shaving is not the best idea since it's easy to cut sensitive
Some girls have extra hair on their bodies because of genetics — some people
have less body hair and others have more, so if your mom or sister also has nipple
hair, it may just run in the family.
Girls might also have extra hair because their bodies make too much of a hormone
called androgen. Too much androgen can make a girl grow hair on her face, chest, and
abdomen. High amounts of androgen also might cause skipped periods or stop a girl's periods
If you are worried about having a lot of body hair, ask your doctor if you should
get your hormone levels checked.
