i have been taught, by some traditionalist healers.. that this chin-hair in women, is in direct relationship with OVARIAN over-exertion. particularly, just before pregnancy, or just after delivery... or, if there is a disease, a cyst, or tumor in the ovaries.. women tend to sprout hair on their chins and upper lips. this I cannot prove.. but, I would suggest you to visit a gyno .. or your routine general practitioner/doctor.. and rule out any abdominal, uterine trouble. thanks for the reading!

I think a lot of women have this problem, but are too embarassed to say anything about it. My mom has some sprouting from her chin, too, so don't worry about it. I most likely will have the same problem when I get a little older, but I'm okay with that. What were tweezers made for?

I too get chin hair as well as hair on my upper lip. I shave every three days to get rid of it, but it keeps on coming back. I am not sure what else to try besides laser surgery (I know this is expensive). I also get hairs on my neck.

You are not alone. I have a few hairs that keep growing in. I pluck them out when they show up since it's only a few. There are alternatives. You can have lazer hair removal which can be expensive. There are facial depilatory creams. Waxing is also available in most salons. I think we just have to accept that we cannot change the fact we have facial hair and pick a solution we can live with.

You are not alone. My sister, the nurse, says it's a hormone thing. There's a cure, an expensive one, but there is a cure. Laser hair removal. The reason it's so expensive is it takes more than one visit to get rid of it forever. I had it done once and it does takes quite a while for it to grow back. If you do decide to try this, shave before you go. It seems to work better.

A friend of mine has the same problem as you.She tends to try to pluck the hairs in her chin out as it takes alot longer for anymore of them to show up.I know it is a painfull job,but she said this is the best way for her.
