  • Facial Hair Made mistake of shaving now its REAL BAD

    Hi everyone I had a hystorectomy a few years back and was not started on any estrogen. I was told because of this I started getting side burns and eventually a beard. I tried creams and waxing and it just started coming back fuller and fuller. I eventually started shaving. Dont get me wrong I love doing everything with my husband but this has gone to far. I am getting sick of having to do it everday sometimes twice a day because I get the five o'clock shadow. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Have you ever considered laser hair removal? I am not sure how expensive it is, but i hear it is great!

      • Hmm that sounds like a tricky one! You could try laser hair removal or you could go back to your doctor and see if they can perscribe any hormone regulating treatments as it sounds like this could be the root of the problem.

            • hirsutism.. sucks. lazer surgery is painful and only gets 20 percent of the hairs you are trying to get rid of at each visit. i am currently trying a cream called vaniqua. haven't noticed that much of a change but a little make a big difference to any women if you keep up with the cream rubbing which is annoying you are supposed to see more and more of a change. also if you are going to shave give yourself a facial first at night or a little before you shave it circulates the blood in that area so you don't need to shave that often. i also believe that if you are to take a diuretic it helps to like spirnolactone. i did a lot of research on the matter. asked a lot of questions at the gyno. also birth control like yaz helps there is another one can't remember but its not regular ortho pills
