Hair Growth

Hair Growth

I know this is something many women experience with having PCOS. I've experienced it for years now even though I was just diagnosed late 2016. Do yall shave the hair or just let it be??

I use the Flawless shaver As Seen on TV. That really helps the stash, goa tee area. A lot of times I pluck cause the shaver misses areas but for the most part and for santairy reason I would pluck it.

When I was 18 I started to get facial hair but literally 2 or 3 single hairs would pop up and I would pluck them. One day I had a date and couldn't find my tweezers so I found some Nair hair removal cream and decided to plaster it all over my face in paranoia. It progressively got worse after that...fast forward 10 years and I have to fully shave my neck and chin every day, sometimes twice daily if I go out in the evening. I hate it! But it's my own fault for being an idiot all those years ago.

I pluck my beard. Sometimes I forget LOL. It doesn't really bother me because my hair isn't dark.
