The human body by nature should have hair, and this is completely normal. But sometimes hair can grow in inappropriate parts of the body, especially in women, such as hair on the chin.
Chin hair can sometimes be a symptom of a larger health problem in women that might not be noticed without it. A doctor can help you explain why you are growing hair on your chin. And, hopefully, to treat the problem. But sometimes the hair on your chin is just hair on your chin.
Polycystic ovary syndrome – Hair on the chin may be a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome (Pcos). Pcos impacts hormones and reproductive health. If you notice hair on your chin or excessive hair on other parts of your body, irregular periods, and infertility, you may want to talk to your doctor about PCOS.
Genetics – It is definitely possible to be predisposed to having hair on your chin through genetics. It may be annoying, but that is exactly what it is.
Cushing’s syndrome – a condition caused by overexposure to the stress hormone, cortisol. Stretch marks, weight gain and type 2 diabetes are other symptoms of Cushing’s syndrome.
Aging-usually menopausal people develop chin hair because estrogen levels decrease and these hormonal changes can lead to extra hair growth.
