I do. I feel like a freak. How common is this?

cantpooinpeace Sun 26-May-13 20:45:38

YES!
1 black one, left nip hmm

Yep on both.

No PCOS here either, im 24, slim and fit and healthy.

Maybe its genetic

MakeGlutenFreeHay Sun 26-May-13 20:50:13

Yep. I have loads. Also have hairy fingers and toes <hobbit>. Not really a 'tache, but I do have a rather pigmented upper lip so it looks like I do... confused

HeffalumpTheFlump Sun 26-May-13 20:50:39

Yep... Even DH doesn't know about it blush... I pluck them. Mine are due to pcos so i don't know if I count in your tally though!

There was a thread a little while ago about hairiness, it would have made you feel so much better. I can't find it for the life of me but it was called something like 'my pubes are migrating down my legs'. All the hairy women (myself included) came together to talk about it!

You are definitely not alone!

I'm not dark haired in other places either, I'am very fair, pale with natural blonde hair, even my leg hair/pubic hair isn't too dark, yet I have these solid black hairs on my nips.

Have PCOS as well so goes with the territory sadly, next on my list for IPL.

i have few which i pluck but have a horrendous tash/beard combo which requires a lot of maintence!
when on holiday in the algarve this topless woman was sitting plucking her nipple hair out in public v odd!

I think this sort of thing should be in sex ed. It would be nice for teenage girls to realise this is normal and gasp for boys to know this too.

SoftSheen Sun 26-May-13 21:01:38

No, never had one, didn't realise women did! Have hairy big toes though

Electrolysis? Why? Much faster results from laser (and less expensive). Not to be confused with IPL which is not as good as proper laser.

CrazyOldCatLady Sun 26-May-13 21:52:44

I'm so hairy I'm pretty certain I'm actually a gorilla. PCOS though.

MythosLivetheDream Sun 26-May-13 22:24:25

Hair is the blight of my life, I feel terrible about it... Hairy nipples, hairy legs, moustache, beard, the whole lot. Depressing really...

Ubermumsy Sun 26-May-13 22:28:42

Yeah... Not many, but the few I have are long and luxuriant given half a chance. I shave (very, very carefully) rather than pluck as it saves ingrowing.

Also v hairy legs, bikini line, chin and pits. (But no tache, thank fuck.) I don't epilate, I deforest.

HollyBerryBush Sun 26-May-13 22:30:58

No, but I'm a red head and not prone to any excess body hair. Although if it helps me fit in, I have one on a mole

SoleSource Sun 26-May-13 22:31:21

No Idon't!

Have a huge thick tash n beard though.

Thanks PCOS

HoHoHoNoYouDont Sun 26-May-13 22:33:38

I almost started a thread on this earlier!

Great minds and hairy women think alike.

meglet Sun 26-May-13 22:34:32

Yes, it made bf a pain as I had to make sure I got rid of the hair even more thoroughly than before. Since I was a teenager I've had hair every-bloody-where. I must have spent a fortune on waxing and bleach over the years. Although my trusty Tweezerman tweezers have never let me down.

I was tested for PCOS as a teen but it came back negative. I've just got shit hairy genes. Pre-DC's I would go on sunbeds to make the hair less obvious.

Thinkingpositively Sun 26-May-13 22:45:00

is that why you are called crop circles cropcircles ? And to answer your question yes, mine have to odd hair. Actually, since i got pregnant they also smell a bit funny...is that normal too??

cocolepew Sun 26-May-13 22:51:53

Horace I only have them on my right nipple too.
We are nipple twins shock

Ubermumsy Sun 26-May-13 22:52:30

Did anyone else get a hairy tummy when pregnant? Mine weren't dark, just soft and numerous and strokeable . I don't notice them now my tum has gone back to its saggy unpregnant state.

KittyMcAllister Sun 26-May-13 22:56:54

Yes - no improvement after kids either confused Also got the whole lip/chin/monobrow thing going on. Attractive!

PesteredButHappy Sun 26-May-13 22:57:49

Yep, I have about 8-10 dark ones scattered around the outer edge of each nipple. nice hmm

Lweji Sun 26-May-13 23:16:07

Strangely I have a lot less now that I've had a baby.

Now that you mention it...

<checks... definitely gone>

Shame about the legs.

PiratePanda Sun 26-May-13 23:17:23

Yes, a few; it's quite common.
