Hi, I am 24 years old female. I have hair on my chest, breast and stomach. Why do I have hair in that area? and how do I get rid of it naturally? It is really embarrassing. My sincere request to please help me find a solution. Thank you.

Such condition is known as hirsutism. Hirsutism can result from excess male hormones, called androgens. This may occur with certain medical conditions. It may also be inherited. Hirsutism results in excessive amounts of stiff and pigmented hair on body areas where men typically grow hair, including the face, chest and back. Hair can also be removed with electrolysis or laser therapy.
