Maybe: Some women can have hair as you describe. It may be hormonal, but it could also be in your genes. Do ther family members have similar hair growth. Electrolysis or laser hair rival will help. If it's hormonal,OCPs can lower male hormone levels, and Spironolactone will black the action of excess male hormone at the hair follicle. Talk to your GYN
