The Cause Of The Presence Of Fur In A Woman’s Abdomen?
Hello, I’m 18 years old, I want to ask, is it normal to grow hair on a woman’s stomach? But the growth is not only the area below the navel to the vagina, but almost the entire stomach to the cleavage. Some are clearly visible and some are not. What’s the cause? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In women aged 18 years, the growth of hair around the abdomen and chest can be caused by several things. Among these can be due to hormonal changes occurring in the body, it could also be due to heredity (genetic) from the family or the factor of ongoing puberty.
Hormonal changes that occur in women aged 18 years can be due to several things, including having higher metabolic hormones than women her age. In addition there can also be other factors that cause abnormalities in the body's hormones due to abnormalities at the source that produces these hormones. One of the causes of hormonal changes in the body is a disease called Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). In these diseases, the occurrence of hormonal disorders caused by ovaries (hormone-producing organs) have an unknown cause.
Symptoms of PCOS include:
-growth of more hair than women in general, namely in the face, chest, abdomen, buttocks, back, hands and feet
-Easy skin is oily and blotchy
- irregular periods
- excess weight
If there are symptoms like the above, you should do an examination to the nearest obstetrician for further examination as will be carried out laboratory checks to determine hormone levels in the body, ultrasound examination and other examinations.
However, aside from PCOS, it is also possible that the condition of the hair that grows around the stomach and chest is something normal just because of descent from the family (genetic) which is like that too. In addition, it can also be due to puberty which is still ongoing, so that hormones in the body are irregular and can cause hair to appear around the stomach and chest.
Things that can be done to reduce complaints include:
- Reducing eating fatty foods
-Keep your body weight ideal
-for women who smoke, you should stop smoking or being close to people who smoke
Thus, hopefully useful :)
