Your optinos: Trusting you're a male naturally "blessed" with a lot of body hair. Most other men are at least a little bit jealous, and many hairy guys love it, but it's your choice (and your partner's, if you've got somebody). There's a whole culture of "manscaping" with trimming and even styling of body hair. Shaving, waxing, and (if you're sure) electrolysis / lasers are all options for you. ...Read more

Not sure of your Q: We know that giving someone excess testosterone can increase body & facial hair. If we give just enough testosterone to someone w/hypogonadism (low t), it shouldn't affect hair growth much, unless that testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which can cause male pattern baldness. Don't forget that genetics & ethnicity play a role in hair growth, too. ...Read more

What do you ask?: Please forgive my frankness. The world is not fair, and cosmetic defects are both personal and professional liabilities. In many (most?) cultures, a masculine pattern of body hair on a woman is a strong negative. It's cruel to tell a person to "be confident" rather than deal with the situation. See about electrolysis or laser Rx. These should be cheap and easily available. ...Read more

Not hormones: A man with a normal amount of testosterone will be hairy or smooth depending on his genetic background. It's the skin's ability to respond. Taking extra testosterone won't turn a smooth man hairy -- if it did, the steroid monsters at the gym would all grow extra body hair, and by and large they do not. Smooth or hairy, I hope you like who you are -- or shave / "manscape" what you don't want. ...Read more

Hi, I'm a 22 year old man and ever since I remembered I have excessive body hair, covered in it, and now my head hair is thinning. How to prevent?
first - thank G-d you are not a woman. Hirsuitism in men as in women can be nonhormonal or hormonaly mediated. The most common hormonal issue is a mild form of genetic defect that affects adrenal steroid production - Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia - of which many varieties. This usually fine for men as it raises testosterone. But male pattern balding is worsenned. Glad to discuss. ...Read more
No: Chances are that you're a young man who's hitting the gym and that's a good thing. How much body hair you get is genetic and you'll know by your early 20's. It's "excessive" only if you don't like it -- and that's your business. Shaving, waxing, or electrolysis / lasers are your options -- the latter only if you've found your life partner and it's the right choice for you both. ...Read more
