Overcoming The Growth Of A Thickened Mustache In Women?
Hello, I am Ratih, I am 20 years old, I often feel less confident with the growth of a mustache. My sister and my mother have mustaches but they are thin, while I’m a bit thick because from a young age I liked to trim my mustaches and attack my mustache where I often shaved, which is only the ends, so that in that part it looks thick. according to my doctor what should I do.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Mustache growth is common in men. However, many women also have a mustache at the top of their lips. This condition generally indicates high levels of androgen hormones in the woman's body. In the medical world, this condition is known as hirsutism.
In addition, the following factors can also increase a woman's risk of developing mustache growth:
Genetics (inherited, hereditary)
Certain races, e.g. South Asian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern women
Taking certain drugs, such as anabolic steroids
Having certain diseases, for example PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), Cushing's syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, tumors that produce androgen hormones, acromegaly, and so on
Shaving or plucking your mustache shouldn't make your mustache thicker. However, shaving or plucking your mustache doesn't make your mustache go away permanently either.
If the mustache growth is still within reasonable limits, then in fact this can be a characteristic that makes you unique and different from your other female colleagues. Therefore, as long as the growth of secondary sexual organs and your menstruation does not experience abnormalities, then there is no need to feel inferior or worry too much.
However, if the mustache bothers you a lot, you can consult a dermatologist directly. If there are no other complications, the annoying mustache growth can be overcome by giving certain creams or drugs, laser therapy, waxing, and several other procedures.
Hope it helps ya..
