Get workup: Being a young woman is difficult enough with a man's beard & acne! you deserve nothing less than a workup for possible masculinizing tumor or ovarian syndrome causing this. Don't settle for just treating symptoms, though electrolysis & acne rx may help. ...Read more

Manage it: If you're a female, manage any underlying hormonal problem in conjunction with your gynecologist or primary caregiver, and get the facial hair removed. The large majority of people will urge you to do this. Laser and electrolysis are both great and won't cost much. ...Read more

What is wrong when a female has problem with facial hair and is it treatable and how ?

Hirsutism of PCOS: Excess facial hair (hirsutism) in female is often caused by androgen (male-hormone) excess, commonly from polycystic-ovarian-syndrome (pcos). Adequate treatment of pcos, which is difficult, often improves facial hair, but takes time. Some med such as spironolactone can help, but again takes many months. Laser or electrolysis are probably most effective and fastest. Consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe it's you!: Around 5% of men never do get a decent beard or much chest hair. Nowadays, many (most?) women claim they prefer this, and such guys don't go bald. Joel Kinneman (photo) isn't complaining, and neither did Paul Newman, the first Hollywood star to show off a truly fit body. Be grateful for whatever Nature gave you, and make lifelong fitness a habit -- you'll look fantastic even with no beard. ...Read more

No simple answer: This is not unusual and may represent a slight delay in onset of puberty. However your pediatrician will likely review your growth curve and may obtain some basic lab studies and x-rays to assess your hormonal status and growth. ...Read more

Be patient: facial hair is largely driven by genetics, so there is no great way to enhance its growth. Frequent shaving may increase the thickness. At 26, you are at the age where your physical maturity is likely peaked, but you have not yet started showing any signs of aging. As you get older, you are more likely to appreciate your youthful appearance. ...Read more

Your genes: How thick or thin a beard you can grow is entirely genetic. I am going to assume that you are normally masculinized with normal erections and ejaculations. It has nothing to do with your virility. Many women in the usa and europe prefer a man with a thin beard; if your culture expects you to grow a thick one, you have my sympathy. Teen idol justin bieber (photo) can't grow a beard either. ...Read more
