    This was one of the symptoms that led my gyn to diagnose my ovarian mass... she thought at first that I might have PCOS, even though I'm almost 45 and have never had most of the symptoms listed for it.  As far as whether or not it's normal, I guess it depends on what else is happening with your health.

    Hi Laurie,

    I had to deal with some this morning as I could feel one there about an inch long and I'm dark.

    My mum had the same problem so I'm not stressing too much but know what not to do.

    She tried electrolysis but because she had always plucked the roots were too distorted for it to be effective.

    They told her to cut them close with scissors so I do that, then in the future electrolysis should work OK.

    I've had one I do pluck but it's been there years now and it's really thick but the ones I found were finer this morning and thankfully light brown and fine in comparison to the black one I've had ages.

    I have a mustache and serious chin hair. It's so course and resistant. No matter how much I shave it, it seems like the stubble comes right back the next day. It's nerve wrecking. I just shave mines with Bic razors. But not seeming to help too much. The increase in facial hair is normal for peri.

    Hi, the last 3 months I have enough hair around my jawline to join the circus as the bearded lady!!  Coarse and black and some on my upper lip too.  I get mine waxed every 4-5 weeks.  My hairdresser/beautician friend told me this is a definate sign of menopause, she comes across it all the time.  Hair on nipples is also normal as well as occassional hair on back!!  Such a joy to be a woman!!

    Hi Laurie! I think this is pretty common occurrence. I have been dealing with it for awhile now. I have been using KAI facial beauty razors and you can get them at Sally Beauty Supply and a lot of places. You can use them for trimming eyebrows and such. It's a small blade on a stick, it's impossible to cut yourself with it. I use it all over my face for all the fuzz and it's not like a traditional razor. Cleans up all the little hairs and won't create any stubble. Also it's great for exfoliating your face while you are at it. Check them out

    they really work, inexpensive too. I love them!! There was a girl on The Bachelor that says she shaves her face and isn't afraid to talk about it and that's what she uses. We ladies need to stick together :D

    Yes I get more darker hairs here and there under my chin or neck. Some above my upper lip. Lighter hairs around my chin line. I do use a trimmer for those, and tweezers for ones that pop up on my neck occasionally. Hate it. Feel like I'm turning into a man some days.

      I always had a moustache that an adolescent boy would be proud of, these days the hair blends in with my wrinkles. At the outer edges they have got much longer though.
