Could be: Hi. It sounds like you may have some androgen excess syndrome, although with your periods normal, it also just could be your genetics. Is the hair recent? The most common androgen excess syndromes would be PCOS, nonclassical congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Cushing's syndrome, and tumors of the ovaries or adrenals. Ask your doc for a referral to an endocrinologist for an evaluation. Good luck!
