While body hair is perfectly natural and normal for both men and women, many people do wish to take more control of what hair they have and how it looks. Most of the time, women have fine hair above their lips and on their chins, chests, abdomens, or backs.
The growth of coarse dark hair in these areas (more typical of male-pattern hair growth) is called hirsutism. In most cases, the exact cause is never known. The condition often runs in families.
Women develop excessive body or facial hair due to higher-than-normal levels of androgens, including testosterone. All females produce androgens, but the levels typically remain low. Certain medical conditions can cause a woman to produce too many androgens.
The presence of excess body hair can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and unhappiness.
