Lots of girls have them.</p> <p>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 nipple skin.</p> <p>Some girls have extra hair on their bodies because of genetics &mdash; 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.</p> <p>Girls might also&nbsp;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&nbsp;periods completely.</p> <p>If you are worried about having a lot of body hair, ask your doctor if you should get your hormone levels checked.</p> <p><em>*Names have been changed to protect user privacy.</em></p>
