Excessive hair growth, also known as hirsutism, is very common in pregnant women. Many pregnant women notice it on their stomachs or other places where they usually have little hair. Although it can be a cosmetic nuisance, the extra hair is usually harmless and will likely go away after birth.
Stomach hair isn’t usually as noticeable on women as it is on men, but it’s perfectly normal for women to have hair on their stomachs. While hair color and thickness varies from person to person, everyone has at least some hair on their stomach.
The disease is often associated with high levels of male hormones (so-called androgens). It is normal for women’s bodies to form these, and low levels will not cause excessive hair growth. But when these amounts are too high, they can cause hirsutism and other things like acne, a deep voice, and small breasts.
Here’s a good, if not obvious, rule of thumb: Depending on how much you trim your chest, your tummy should be cropped to at least the same height, probably even shorter. It’s really a visual thing. As for below the belly button, don’t hesitate to just grab a trimmer and go to town.
Apply the bleaching cream to the hairy areas of the abdomen with a spatula and leave on for 10-15 minutes. For lighter skin tones, you need to keep the cream longer. Then rinse off the cream with water and pat dry. This solution will lighten the hairs in the stomach area, but will not remove them.
No – shaving hair does not change its thickness, color or growth rate. Shaving facial or body hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip may feel coarse or “stoppy” for a time as it grows out. During this phase hair may be more noticeable and may appear darker or thicker.
