A 24-year-old female asked:

I'm a woman and my facial hair is coarse, why?

See a doctor: Coarse facial hairs in women often relate to underlying hormonal imbalance, called hirsutism. Any condition that increase the relative testosterone level can cause unwanted hair growth. Your doctor will likely will check a number of blood tests, and possibly an ultrasound of your ovaries to rule out cysts. Some medications can also cause hair growth on face.
