Or just pluck them: New hair growth after cutting may seem thicker & stiffer. That's because the "cut end" of the hair feels coarser. The previous hair ends that were older (and softer & thinner by being "worn down" by friction of day-to-day life) have been cut away.

Unlikely to be hormonal but a visit to a gynecologist would be helpful for you. ...Read more
DHT: Sexual hair growth in men and women is under the influence of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is made from testosterone.

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 ...Read more
