Over the last few years I have developed hair growth below the belly button leading down to the pubic area and also round my nipples. As this is an embarrassing problem I pluck the hairs or wax them, if I continue to do this will they eventually stop growing back or will I make them worse? I have never taken the contraceptive pill although did have one contraceptive injection a few years ago. Could this have anything to do with it and would going on the Pill maybe help with this problem by controlling my hormones? I do not have any excess hair anywhere else and even on my legs the hair is not that dark, so I don't know why I get it here. I did buy some cream which is called 'STOP hair regrowth' and claims to stop hair from regrowing if applied after waxing.

Right there. On your nipple. Of the approximately 50 million hair follicles covering your body, only one-fifth of them are located on your scalp , which leaves plenty of other places for random strands to pop up. When it comes your nipples, hair generally pops up on or right outside of the areola. On your abdomen, you may find yourself with a more pronounced patch of hair from your navel to your pubes or a few random hairs around your belly button. Your chin , meanwhile, is one of the most common places to find stragglers. Certain medications can also cause excessive hair growth, such as testosterone, danazol, anabolic steroids, glucocorticoids, cyclosporine, minoxidil, and phenytoin.

The best advice I can give you is to visit your doctor for a check-up. The fact that the hair is very visible and appears on certain parts of your body — especially the back — suggests there might be a hormone imbalance which can be treated. During puberty, there are rapid increases in several hormones chemicals in the body that lead to your physical growth as well as breast and pubic hair development. These hormones also cause increased oil production and hair growth.
Excess hair hirsutism in women often appears in the places where men have body hair, such as the upper lip and chin, the chest including around the nipples , the tops of the shoulders and the lower abdomen. The excess hair is usually coarse and dark different from the fine hair that some women have on their upper lip, chin, breasts and stomach. The hairs also grow longer than normal so, for example, hairs on the upper lip may grow to 1 cm long instead of remaining short, fine and fair.
